Fairchild-Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II A-10 Cuba Avionics year: 1996 tags: Avionics description: The Virtual Cockpit (VCP) integrated seamlessly with the static, instrument views, of which there were two - upper and lower panel.
Merely by moving the hat switch you were taken to VCP mode.
A-10 had a one of the nicest analogue cockpits seen up to 1996.
All the buttons worked and could be operated with the mouse. This feature certainly sped up the learning curve immensely.
There was a host of dials - and they all worked!
