There are two photographs. The top one is of a cockpit of a fighter aircraft. It shows one HUD (Head Up Display and three HDD (Head Down Display) All three HDDs are Multi Function Displays. Certain analog meters can also be seen which are redundant/standby displays. Portion of the joystick can also be seen in the foreground.

The bottom photograph is of a simulator or a helicopter cockpit. Can't make out either way. Thats about all I can see as a pongo in those photographs

SU-30 MKI Cockpit. I could tell not only because of the MFD, front (HUD) and back cockpit (disply thru camera) but also the big bulge on the right hand side of the outside of the cockpit. a trademark, i can say for the SU-30 MKI.

A jet fighter cockpit? Probably one of them is the LCA.

Abid said...

MI-35 Helicopter gunship, WSO cockpit.In the first photograph- the there is HUD and flight operations mode console. In the bottom photograph, although the GPS and MFD have been retained, the HUD is now replaced with IR / Camera sight superimposed with Flight mode simulation data.

Thaariq said...

This first picture shows the Engine displays, it got two engines. So definitely this is not MiG27 but seems to be of Russian Origin by the Colour of it. Its a twin seater, so should be Su30 MKI Pilot and WSO Cockpit.

Thaariq said...

The engine displays shows instruments for two engines, and by the colour of it looks to be Russian. The pictures are of front and rear cockpit so it should be Su30MKI

Jay said...

Image 1: Front cockpit of the Indian Sukhoi 30 MKI. At the top is the Head Up Display, allowing the pilot to get essential information without having to look down. Below it are 3 Multi Function Displays (MFDs). The one on the extreme left has been configured to display the basic instruments required to fly the aircraft: attitude indicator (artificial horizon), airspeed indicator, vertical speed indicator (VSI), altimeter, horizontal speed indicator (HSI) and turn & heading indicators. The one in the middle has been configured for navigational purposes. It shows a map with the current position of the aircraft on it. The third MFD on the extreme right displays information regarding the two engines and amount of fuel remaining.
In between the 2nd and the 3rd MFDs are the backup mechanical guages showing much of the same information. Below, at centre, is the "stick" to control the aircraft. The stick also includes buttons to fire armaments carried by the aircraft.
Between the HUD and the MFDs below it, is the input interface to the mission computer. Information about the mission (waypoints, etc.) are input before the flight through this interface.

Image 2 shows the rear cockpit of the Su-30 MKI. It is where the Weapons Systems Officer (WSO) sits. He has a HUD repeater on top, and all other instruments in the front are duplicated for him. The pilot in front is responsible for flying the aircraft and the one behind is responsible for situational awareness, navigation, target designation, etc., although many roles are interchangeable.

RT said...

SO the MKI has a DMG now! Gr8!

Nitish said...

The HAL produced Su 30 MKI pilot's cockpit(1st picture)and Navigator's/WSO's cockit(2nd one)and probably with MFDs from Samtel.

Su-30MKI cockpit (front and rear).

Do my eyes fool me or is that a 'tactical situation' moving map display?

Maybe this is the new MFD that your article back in October referred to? "IAF order worth Rs 250 cr to Indian industry"

Beautiful pics..
Samtel displays on the Su-30 MKI.
Both positions show the tactical moving map display sourced from the israeli display map generator (indigenized for the darin-3 upgrade), while the rear cockpit shows a hud repeater as well. the other 2 displays (left and right) on both positions are basically for standard flight info.

Gagan said...

Ajai-ji,
What is your opinion? This looks simple enough?

Looks like Kumar is the winner? Or is there something more that everyone is failing to see?

These must be photos of cockpit of one of the first 6 SU30MKI, fitted with SHDS MFDs.

This new MFDs displays for front and rear instrumental boards of SU30MKI are made by Samtel-HAL Display Systems(SHDS).

Till now Thales MFDs were used but recently SHDS mfd are approved by CEMILAC

technical specs can be found on

RESULTS OF THE QUIZ...

NO PRIZES FOR GUESSING THAT THIS IS A COCKPIT... NO PRIZES FOR GUESSING THAT THIS IS A SU-30MKI COCKPIT EITHER.

THE FIRST ACCEPTABLE IDENTIFICATION IS FROM prkallu WHO POINTED OUT THAT THIS IS A SU-30MKI COCKPIT WITH SAMTEL MFDs.

ALSO... A SPECIAL MENTION OF JAY... FOR THE MOST DETAILED STUDY OF THE MFDs.

WELL PLAYED, ALL!
