LANTIRN HUD

Notes:

This sticker on Scotchcal film is typical of the promotional material given out at Air Shows or acquired on visits to suppliers. A development contract was published by the WPAFB in 1979 for a holographic HUD for the F-16 and A-10 which were to be fitted with the LANTIRN Pod. LANTIRN is a podded sensor system for low-altitude day/night navigation and attack, and the HUD is used to superimpose infrared images on the pilot's view of the outside world. In the event only the F-16 was fitted with the DHUD. The Sticker probably dates from 1979/1980 and shows an F-16C/D and an A-10.
