This film shows the pilot's forward view through the Head-Up Display (HUD) during and Air-to-Air gunnery mission at twilight.
-
The use of tracer bullets at twilight demonstrates excellent correlation between the actual bullet paths and the computed paths displayed on the HUD, even during high-g maneuvers.
-
In the "Snapshoot" mode, gun aiming computations are optimized for transient firing opportunities during dynamic target maneuvers.
