However I share your frustration, in particular due to the progress over the last few months and the less than stellar communication from Razbam on the Harrier module. Have a look at Aviodev and the continued updates and support they have been delivering for the C-101 module and compare that to Razbam. It makes for a stark comparison. Below I list in order from most recent (top) all the updates (2.5 Open Beta Changelog) that Razbam have delivered to their modules over the last 6 month period:

DCS M-2000C by RAZBAM - 3rd October 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 4th September 2019 (Only full set of training missions)
DCS M-2000C by RAZBAM - 4th September 2019
DCS M-2000C by RAZBAM - 31st July 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 31st July 2019
DCS M-2000C by RAZBAM - 17th July 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 17th July 2019
DCS AV-8B N/A by RAZBAM - 3rd July 2019
DCS MIG-19P by RAZBAM - 3rd July 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 21st June 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 6th June 2019
DCS MIG-19 by RAZBAM - 6th June 2019
DCS AV-8B by RAZBAM - 8th May 2019
DCS MIG-19 by RAZBAM - 8th May 2019

So it is fair to say that the pace of updates from Razbam with the Harrier have slowed significantly over the last couple of months while there is little indication on what Razbam are working on apart from the JDAM to bring the Harrier out of Early Access and into a complete state. The Bug Tracker on the Razbam website have zero real date timestamps to assess progress on bugs. In effect as a paying customer it appears that I am expected to keep hanging in the dark.

Razbam are not doing the A-6 Intruder. Heatblur may be doing the Intruder down the track. Razbam are busy working on a mid-life update for the Mirage 2000C, bringing the Harrier and Mig-19 out of early access, and then a host of 4 other modules being in no particular order the Mig-23, F-15E, Super Tucano, and a Falklands map. Given they still have two modules in Early Access states I would not think Razbam would want to extend their Early Access hanger to 3 or 4 modules.
Couldn’t agree more.The last thing they need is another new project. They should finish the ones they already sold.
