hud pitch ladder behavior

Recommended Posts

Since I mostly fly older jets I never noticed the following hud behavior: If I yaw the aircraft, the pitch ladder in huds from "modern" jets (e.g F-14, F-15, F-16) in game moves horizontally. Is this a bug or engine limitation? 

Edit: uups, after watching some youtube videos of real life huds, this behavior seems correct...

Yes, as you have mentioned, this is correct.

This is called an 'uncaged' HUD where the pitch ladder is centred around the flight path marker (FPM). It serves to highlight that the direction of flight is different from where the aircraft is pointing.

A 'caged' HUD is usually used on larger aircraft where the pitch ladder is centred around the climb dive marker (CDM) or waterline/pitch reference symbol (PRS).

Is it possible to create a "caged" HUD in the game?

Unfortunately no.
