In 1989, the Indonesian Air Force began to take delivery of its first F-16s, and these were based alongside its F-5s. In March 1995, Belgium's SABCA was awarded a contract to upgrade the Indonesian F-5 fleet so that the planes could act as lead-in fighter trainers for the F-16. The 16 aircraft were fitted with the GEC-Marconi Avionics HUD/WAC and Sky Guardian RWR, new air data computer, stores management system, HOTAS controls, and a MIL-STD-1553B databus.
This PDU was used as a space model for the Indonesian F-5 and was a test fit in the aircraft. The space behind the blank panel on the aft end was for a Video Camera.
This HUD needs some assembly of the various parts.
