MiG 29 Fulcrum - 1990 - Avionics

Fausto Romeo remembers:

Avionics and cockpit modeling were kept as simple as possible, yet the sheer oddity of the flight instruments was crucial to putting the pilot in the right 'MiG-29-mystery-mood'. There was a radar scope that displayed radar blips, and had a 'miniature aircraft' bank indicator in its center...if I remember well the detection range must have been around 100 Km, which is quite close to reality.

The MiG-29's weapon load was extraordinarily realistic, with provision for bombs, unguided rockets, R-60 'Aphid' and R-27 'Alamo' AAM's. In some special missions you could also use a guided A/G weapon...I don't remember exactly whether it was a laser/TV-guided bomb or an AGM of the Kh-type.
