New F-18 Cockpit Display Looks Like An Awesome Video Game

This is the new LCD display in the cockpit for the new revision F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. It looks like an awesome '90s arcade video game. One that doesn't allow you to insert a coin to continue when you die.

The new LCD screen shows a 3D situational awareness display that offers a clear view of the terrain -- with the option for a colour contour line overlay -- along with threats and targets. It also shows the effective radius for each type of missile selected by the pilot.

Everything is colour-coded too. And, if there are other aeroplanes in the air, the software will display the adequate icons for each aircraft type. This is some serious pew-pew system. [The Dew Line]
