I have and love both. But I've already spent more time in the Harrier and that's despite owning the Mirage from EA. So it really is personal choice as both are vastly different.

Despite being unfinished, the Harrier feels lighter and more nimble. Landing on the included carrier is exhilarating and never gets boring or routine. It has become my favorite DCS module and that is saying something indeed.

Whatever you decide there's zero chance you will be disappointed, and you can always get the other next!

Thanks
Like other people said: it isn't about the plane, it's about the kind of mission you want to fly.

Mirage 2000C RDI: when it was front line air defense fighter, pilots spent 85% of training doing AA, 15% doing AG.
It's supersonic, BVR missiles, IFF interrogator, integrated jammer and decoy dispensers. She loves high speed and high altitude.

AV-8B: close air support down in the mud is her bread and butter. Can do strike off course. AA only for self defense. STOVL operations from LHD or remote locations surely add a lot of fun.

Awesome information and thoughts. Just what I was looking for. I like AA and AG almost equally, and have always had a love for the Mirage AND the Harrier, hence the reason for this thread

I think I am leaning towards the M2000 only because of the campaign and the Upcoming Red Flag sounds amazing.
I'm going to let this all marinate and hopefully pull the trigger on one of these soon. I can always come back and get the other later on. Its not like its final, final, right.

Thanks guys

Option 3

if you want to do CAS in a fully finished module with guided weapons etc. multifunction displays without waiting for the harrier to be finihsed

Look no further than the A10C.

Option 4

Want an aircraft that is potent air to air combat , and also something that perform a wide array for Strike missions?

Wait for F/A18C.

proper Multimission Fighter that is not that far off from early access given thier expected release deadline at worst will be end of Spring.

a friend has read, never asked hm where, that in upcoming future the Harrier might gets a radar and aim-120, so more likely the AV-8B Harrier II Plus variant. But again no sure references, but i wouldn't surprise. But for now, there is so many stuf left to be done on this one, let's just focus and dream about the AV-8B N/A being complete.
