most players will be using thier MFD for more important things.

going into stike attack 1 screen will be l used to have radar mapping, and other for ATFLIR imaging in ground attack, and bottom for navigation. Far more critical when doing such a given task than bothering with MFD HUd repeater.

I'd guess he's pointing out that the NVGs don't generally go together with the HMD.

It's easier to read and see the DDIs than it is the HUD.

The HUD is completely clear in NVGs they work together flawlessly but I can understand keeping the repeater near the Radar so you get an easy to read head down instrument while using the Radar.

Interesting. Gives a whole new meaning to the expression look-down/shoot-down.

It's for redundancy, in case the HUD display actually fails. The standby instruments are placed way down the front console and would be a pain to constantly reference during IFR and night.

If the HUD is working normally then you would never have the hud repeated on the DDIs unless you were on autopilot and was doing some serious heads-down map reading on the HSI and kneeboard wanted to glance at the DDI to verify altitiude and speed are still good.

JHMCS (pronouced J-Himmicks) is always on. How would I know? Ask the guys who fix it, because the pilots will surely tell you when it's broken.
