Yeah my SA is just the -1, which doesn't have any info on where the panel is located, and that all the connectors and such are on the left. When I have sat in the front of a sim or PCATD or whatever, I haven't really been looking for all the lighting panels. Its not specifically stated where it is in the -1.

Not something in the backseat you are looking for when you climb in every day.

Out of curiosity, I checked a very recent version of the -1. The diagram still has the AHRS panel shown in the front seat, but no VTR. Unless dudes are past their 20, they’ve probably never even seen one. It was gone before the VTR panel was. Not being paper any more, you would think it would be a little more up to date by now.

HMD panel is in the documentation, and there’s even a picture, but they mist keep it a secret from everyone on where it’s supposed to be located.

At least it doesn’t still show the LOX gauge...

Love the "Check master arm" at 4:07 then seeing the gun cross appear a second later. Would have been a shame to MEZ pen only to go through dry because you were on safe....
For anyone interested. Here is the article to go along with that HUD tape video. Adds some context.

Secondly Zeus commented on this in the RAZBAM discord:
I am always confused when I do a google search on that.
Whatever I type in, I get pictures of both...

So which one is the one with the "closed" nozzle, not the "rods" on the outside?
Seems that would be the 220.

And 229 In my eyes looks like the "classic" F-15C Engine, which we have in DCS as well, right?

Always loved the more unusual looks of the 220, I guess it's not about looks

The -220 and -229 both visually look the same at the back. The closed versions you see are export versions of the -15.

The 229 is more powerful, right ?
