Air Power Cold War Cockpit Virtual Cockpit year: 2000 All of the cockpits have Autopilot and Navigation consoles which are available by pressing ' shift-2 ' and ' shift-4 '.
I found the autopilot window could be undocked and moved to a second monitor with very little impact on frame rate. Some also have a Horizontal Situation Indicator, and the B-45C Tornado has altimeter, airspeed and rate of climb as well.
Air Power Cold War Cockpit Virtual Cockpit year: 2000 Fixed cockpits in most sims are great for instrument flying but don't really enable you to simulate real visual flight conditions, where most of the time the pilot's head and attention is out of the cockpit.
Using the virtual cockpit with the HUD display gives a much better 'simulation' of the visual flying experience.
