Default Attitude Check

Different Attitudes for different Dudes

After flying several CCCP/Russian designed aircraft (MiG-15, MiG-21, and YAk-52), I thought I'd try getting an answer on something I was puzzled by.

The former Soviet Union (CCCP) and today's Russia have had (and still have) many distinguished Aeronautical Engineers and Aviation Pioneers. But for the Life of Me (being Western Trained), I cannot understand the Logic behind Russian style Attitude Indicators (AI):

- If Blue is Sky and Brown is Dirt, looking at the Russian Attitude Indicator appears Upside Down

- Because Russian AI Sky & Dirt are Reversed - When Pitching Nose Up, the Russian AI displays (in the Sky, but) Nose Down

- And also confusing (to a lesser extent) are just the differences in the Orientation & Movement of the Horizon Bar


I guess that if you train from the beginning to understand what the Rusian AI is telling you, this would be second nature, For me, I really have to re-cage my Brain; and/or stay VFR/VMC.

Could someone please explain (Collude) on how & why this design was conceptualized.
