Invasion of The U.S.A
Underground communists have overthrown the U.S.S.R. in an attempt to destroy the free world. Using the new TU-190 bomber, the rebels are preparing to launch an invincible assault on the United States.
The military group FALCON is called in to annihilate the revolutionaries before they activate this deadly warbird. The impending invasion is on the horizon, and the forces are gathering. The Harrier V is the only hope to thwart rebel attack...
Time to launch the first offensive! The enemy fortifications are weak here, so concentrate on powering up your Harrier V war plane. Your main target is a large attack helicopter protecting the outer defenses.
After skillfully defeating the slow attack chopper, move on to the second line of enemy defense in the mountains! The enemy is digging in, and you need to mount a massive ground assault to uproot them.
The main objective of the third mission is to wipe out the rebel's main air squadron. Four attack choppers are protecting the main bomber, so use the speed formation to avoid their deadly cannon fire.
With the rebel's primary air assault cut off, they are attempting to regroup their supplies and ammunition on the ground. Destroy the ground transports, ammunition dumps, and supply houses to suffocate the insurgent forces. Both air and ground support are protecting these vital targets, however, and speed is the essence. The nuclear flame throwing tank is the last line of defense here.
Following the flame tank's defeat, the battle flows to the open sea. Aircraft carriers learned of the Harrier V attack and quickly moved into position along the coastline. Loaded with kamikaze aircraft and missile placements, they plan to end your advancement. The final enemy here is the innovative split bomber. This war machine is capable of splitting in two and firing laser beams between its two halves! Megabombs are a must.
Utterly stunned, the revolutionaries are trying to salvage what is left of their water armada. Numerous hovercrafts and tanks line the aircraft carriers in the hopes to send the Harrier V to a watery demise. Power is a plus while slipping through the hastily erected defenses, so grab all the power ups possible! The gigantic hyper-hovercraft awaits your arrival at the end of the mission. It should pose no problem at all.
Now the Harrier V has reached the outer reaches of the main rebel complex. The ground forces are the most ruthless yet, and the air support is supreme. This is the hardest level so far, but the real challenge appears in the form of an ultra-advanced stealth bomber! The huge war plane consists of two main parts: the plane and the stealth unit. Destroy the plane and the stealth unit separates and attacks! Can you survive to the end?
