Is this Mig-21 HUD Correct?

Recommended Posts

I have two pippers in Mig-21 F HUD. This is Mig-21 complete pack installed into SF2 Israel.

Is this correct? Or how do I fix this?

That isn't two pippers.

The big one is a fixed reticle for reference (especially when manually aiming).

The smaller one is the traditional gyro-driven pipper.

It is quite correct, there is nothing to fix.

no mean to being a last minute help/ info person but here is link to a hud of a mig 21 http://vayu-sena.indianmilitaryhistory.org/pix/MiG-21_HUD_Pakistan_Atlantique_kill.jpg http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?p=4352848 http://www.airliners.net/photo/0905221

http://www.patricksaviation.com/photos/Pavel/2185/ couldn't find the big one or small one pertaining to the hud but if u are looking to making any adjustments i say download the chinese j-8 here at ca and modify it if u wish very similar to yours but inferior. early chinese j-8s also uses old mig hud .

 

hope it helps to clarify and also enjoy

Firstly, that's not a HUD (Head Up Display), but rather a combining glass for the gunsight pipper and reticle. Also, there's a video floating around somewhere, taken from the perspective of someone sitting in a MiG-21's ejection seat, where the "videographer" cycles through the various reticles...and it shows both of the above to be correct.

Depends how old the MiG-21 is, older ones had a combining glass, later ones had HUD.

The example shown in the image, is a cockpit for a '21MF, which does not sport a HUD. HUDs were intro'd on the '21-93 and later conversions, no MiG-21s ever shipped new from the factory, with HUDs as original equipment.
