Not so long as other previous mods, (just a month away). But still, a wait nonetheless!

WE, get to fly the lot, so we CANNOT be brilliant at all of them. (Although UTUBE humbles me any day) So I pay I strap into it, sort of, and go have a blast...and if I bend it I don't end up court martialled (Should have been at some point in my career but that's different). Enjoy
Alas the RAF scrapped theirs early donating parts to the USMC leaving us with two floating gin palaces. At least our WAH-64 could attack Libya from them but a Harrier would have saved the 18 hour round trip from RAF Marham our Tonkas had to endure.

Default To pre-purchase or not to pre-purchase?

I've made the mistake in the past to pre-purchase, and I cannot get myself to do the same with the Harrier, even if it is the most anticipated plane for me. I just feel that paying money to the devs and filling their pockets gives them no intensive to make sure they iron out bugs by releasing a good-enough product and release time. There are so many planes out there - and I own just about every one of them - some that have questionable support. Quite a few come to mind. Anyways I'm holding on to my money this time till I'm sure the Harrier is not a dump-and-run.

Although I agree with you, I couldn’t resist, I made the purchase. The two biggest Adjustments that need to be made in my mind are in regards to the physical model. 1): landing gear and Oleo strut travel and rebound. 2): The two fins On the drop tanks. (There should be only one)

Ron assured us months ago that these would be addressed, yet every new video shows that the landing gear still has not been adjusted, and the 2 fins are still there. Starting to get worried!

These will be fixed in due time. We have so many thinks to check and review that small stuff like the tanks fins get pushed to the back of the TO-DO list.

I’m still trying to figure out which version of DCS is needed for the early access, I’d love to fly her on the NTTR. Any more info on this somewhere?

Most likely both, the only question is which one will get the Harrier first.

Unless the Big Merge happens before the end of the next month.
