We finally have it. Working Cockpit Instruments. One of the most wanted features. And now it’s here. And oh boy, it looks great. The cockpit of the newly designed A-10 is the most advanced so far and probably the best looking.
But one thing is missing: The HUD.
At the moment, at the position where there should be an HUD, there is only the blank and empty screen. This feature request suggests the addition of the HUD to it. And not only to the A-10 but to all future Cockpit reworks where a HUD is to be found, like the F/A 18 or the 737MAX Series.
We already have an HUD today. Todays HUD is only an overlay though. What I’m suggesting is the addition of the realistic HUD to the Virtual Cockpit View.
And I would agree with you. The actual thing I worry is that the future rework of the F/A 18 will come without the HUD. And a Hornet without a HUD? Would only be half the fun. Same goes for the A-10. Let’s see what the future brings!
With the upcoming xcub and the glass displays, i think now is a time for the developers to work on a hud for the a10. If they are able to create and implement a system of working glass displays on the xcub, then im sure they can easily integrate the hud on the a10 into its actual compartment. I would love to properly fly the A-10 but the lack of its HUD kind of takes away most of the experience. If the HUD is added alongside the working instruments, then the a10 will surely be one of the best aircraft in the game.
Heres what it looks like in infinite flight with the HUD:
Now that I realized how important the HUD is, I’d definitely like to see a HUD added to the actual cockpit. This would benefit several aircraft like the A320 and 737 series as well as the A350 and even MD11.
