A larger playerbase doesn't always mean more income. The core control for VTOL aircraft is "Thrust Vector", this is an axis control (i.e. When the hover percentage is greater than 0% the aircraft will go up, when it is less than 0% the aircraft will go down; the larger the percentage number the more rapidly the aircraft will move up or down. Coming soon to a battle near you, the Blackburn Firebrand! Join now and take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with millions of players from all over the … If relative control is enabled then hover mode becomes a scale between -100% and +100%, with a value of 0% meaning the aircraft stays at its current altitude. Notice the rotated nozzles and opened vertical intake. In order to achieve VTOL the nozzles are angled downwards, directing all of the engines thrust downwards. Join now and take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with millions of players from all over the world in … The Hawker Siddeley Harrier was the world’s first operationally successful ground attack aircraft with vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) capabilities. Unlike all other aircraft in the game, the Harrier features a distinct thrust vectoring propulsion system - a feature that immediately becomes apparent when pilots spot the two thrust nozzles on either side of the airframe. makes the nozzles point down), while "Decrease values" does the reverse. Following its maiden flight in August of 1966, the RAF extended the purchase order to 60 production aircraft, now receiving the official designation Harrier GR.1. Axis control - Increases or decreases the angle of the thrust vectoring nozzles. Followers 8. Hold your horses for a while. However, pilots can push the aircraft to its limits and break the sound barrier in a dive, assuming they don’t break the aircraft beforehand. The Harrier was initially deployed with British forces in West Germany in the early 1970’s. Tally-ho! The basic idea was to design an aircraft with V/STOL capabilities. The Harrier's nozzles pointed straight down (~90% vector). This would work much better. The first method is to take-off like any other aircraft; VTOL aircraft typically have very good thrust to weight ratios and accelerate quickly, so this is often a good choice. Depending on the version of the engine, it can generate from 19,000 - 21,500 lbf (8618 - 9752 kgf) of thrust, thus allowing the aircraft to reach speeds between 683 - 745 mph (1,100 - 1,200 kph), depending on the modification of the aircraft. The next way to to partially vector your nozzles, this diverts some of your thrust downwards, providing a shorter takeoff run. Developed during the 1960’s, several variants of the Harrier are now on course to also become the first V/STOL aircraft available to pilots in War Thunder as they arrive in the game as part of the ‘New Power’ update!

Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) is a design feature found on some aircraft in the game. Probably Yak-36 GE premium, Yak-38 tech tree, if I had to guess. There are only a few controls specifically associated with VTOL aircraft. In the late 1950’s, the Bristol company was conducting work on developing an engine featuring innovative thrust vectoring technology. The "Hover mode" control puts the aircraft in and out of hover mode; you can bind it to any key you want, however hover mode is of limited use so leaving it unbound is fine. https://wiki.warthunder.com/index.php?title=VTOL&oldid=78870.

Possessing similar performance characteristics as the regular versions, the Harrier GR.1 and AV-8A primarily offer pilots additional rewards for all actions performed in combat as well as giving particularly eager pilots instant access to the aircraft, without needing to research it first. About the Game. These thrust nozzles can be rotated from 0 - 98° manually by pilots, and with enough thrust applied, the aircraft will either take off normally or vertically, depending on the angle set to the thrust nozzles. The low tier/starting tier grind isn't bad at all...grind on top tiers, now that's fucking bad... smaddeus, The problem isn't low tiers or top tiers, it's the mid-high tiers.

This system needs to change. Additionally, pilots will also be able to enter hover mode with the press of a button - similar to helicopters - thus enabling them to perform helicopter-style attack runs or avoid enemy detection at low altitude. Once airborne and with sufficient airspeed you should move the nozzles to their non-vectored position. In the meantime, clear skies and happy hunting pilots. P-80 (F-80A-5) is good for learning how to fly jet aircraft. Like "Thrust Vector" it is an axis control and is set up in a similar way; bind the increase option to the key you want to make your aircraft go up, and decrease option to the key to make your aircraft go down. Once above your aircraft's stall speed you can vector the nozzles all the way to 0% and begin level flight. You can take-off in three different ways in VTOL aircraft.
