Either “first person view” or maybe “flight path vector”.

It’s that little circle in the middle of the HUD that shows you where you’re heading, regardless of aircraft orientation.

It shows where the mass of the aircraft is going. Whereas the “wings” show where your nose is pointing. With that info we can get a good sense of our angle of attack. Basically if you’re on final that little circle should be right on your touchdown zone. And when you are touching down, it should be pointed toward the end of the runway.
