And then I changed the Heavy Hog's AppearanceModel and WeaponManager to the Harrier's and this happened:
Edit: I polished it a little, changed the text and did some random things. If you want to try it, then click here.

It's not implemented because you'd never carry out attacks in this manner. Maneuverability is very limited, it puts a massive constraint on maximum weapons stores, it massively drains fuel, and at least in the Harrier it can only sustain it for a few minutes thanks to heat buildup.
The VTOL capability lets the aircraft land vertically (when most of the fuel has been used and munitions have been expended), take off with a very short runway, or vertically take off with a very limited weapons load (a couple of bombs or rocket pods). The last option really limits operational range, and so was never really practiced; STOVL (Short-Take Off/Vertical Landing) was much more useful.
