If I were you, I would use the first picture you linked and compare with that.

Why? The second one has fuel tanks. Do we know how much fuel is in there? Nope.

So just for safety, do it again with the first one, where he seems to only have a sidewinder on it.

To me it actually looks like the whole airplane AOA is different. Like the DCS Harrier has less weight on the front wheel or more weight on the back. The panels beside the pod are at the same angle as the pod and the vertical stabilizer is showing less. I don’t know why this is- could be a difference in weight or speed

Pay attention to the tail of TPOD.

Not only that, the height of the belly pylon seems to be different in reality.

This just adds to the number of 3d model inaccuracies in the Harrier. Sadly, Razbam doesn't want to aknowledge ANY of them and deletes threads that report them.

In the screenshot the camera is higher than in the actual photo.

The aircraft in the photo is an AV-8B-Plus; you can tell from the FLIR cell on top of the nose.

The LIDS skirts on the Plus look larger, which might be a thing on the Plus.
