The good old SPO-10 is actually visible in the video. Right next to the radar buttons. Originally it is placed a lower than we are used to in DCS. From my memory, Leatherneck decided to change
it's position for player convenience. A little bit of artistic license

Notice the original placement of SPO-10

Location of the SPO indicator changed throughout the production series but it's first time I hear there's anything artistic about it. Here is picture of the MiG-21MF I've taken this summer when I had a chance to seat in one:


Here is Finnish bis:

Thanks for your input, Hiromachi! My memory must be failing me, but I recall some instruments being swapped around back i the days. But it was half a decade ago so Im probably wrong about that

Over 10000 produced so I guess there will be a number of different configurations.

Yes, and the best part is that each country that operated it, introduced some changes or modifications. You can cutomize this aircraft a lot.

The AOA indicator was designed for the MF version. If you look up pictures of the MF's instrument panel, you will see this instrument is oriented the right way up in a different location. In the Bis it is installed around 45 degrees rotated. The simple reason for installing it like that is because it only fits this way. The screws on the instrument case can be lined up only this way. In order to have this instrument installed the right way up they would have to change the way it is manufactured. To save cost they just left it like that.

About the SPO-10: Schmidtfire is right. I remember the devs decision on changing its location in order to see it better in game.
The Bis has two subversions: The 75A and 75AP, or using different names the LAZUR Bis and the RSBN Bis. We have the RSBN version in game, and in that one the SPO-10 is indeed at a different spot on the main instrument panel. In the LAZUR version it is where we have it in game. That's the little change the devs did and Schmidtfire called it artistic freedom. Now, I am talking about the original designs. It is correct that countries did change them around with different mods and avionics, so you shouldn't be bothered by it at all.

As for the fixed net, that is just one of three variants used on the sight unit throughout its production. This one being the mid production. Late production is what we see currently.

About the AoA gauge: To me it looks like it's just rotated so at 28° the needle is either pointed straight up or straight right. Makes it easy to check out of the corner of your eye.
