Exclamation Question: Will the Eurofighter have a HMD

Specifically, I would like to ask if the eurofighter will include the, Eurofighter Helmet-Mounted Symbology System.

Thanks,
PB8

By not having it you're not incorrect, if you look at pictures from this time you can see that RAF Typhoons were flown in standard day and night helmets for years.

Even if the HMD would not be completely factually correct, the sensation of being able to look around tracking and locking targets would be very nice, and would give us some idea of what a GHMD can do in principle.

I agree with Stickshaker, I think you guys can just implement a simple one just like in the su-27, just so we can use the Asraam, (or any other types of short range missiles) to good use during a dogfight.

VEAO are modelling a specific Tranch 1 Block 5 Typhoon.

If the one they're modelling didn't have it, I'd rather go without than have some made up implementation.

The vast bulk of T1B5 did not have functioning HMD. It is quite common on the T2+ aircraft but the earlier variants were more common to have the normal day/might helmet.

As Chris said it is something in discussion

The HEA was introduced with SRP 4.3 in T1 aircraft and the simular SRP 5.1 for T2 aircraft. No T1 was delivered in this configuration, but all have been brought up to this standard. SRP 5.1 was introduced at Block 9 and has been retrofitted to earlier T2 aircraft (Block 8/8B).

So all Typhoons should in principle HEA capable and HEA was also part of the original requirements. Ofcourse if the RAF says it's no going to be implemented then it's the way it is.. would be a pity however.
