Ah-1z cockpit

Recommended Posts

I've been searching the internet for last few days and couldn't find any pictures of the zulu Cobra pit showing more than the instruments panel. Are the seats same as in whisky Cobra?

Modeling News has a review of the kit with few  photos of the interior. Very few photos available on the interior so far.

I have seen them already. Not too much of the seat except the one through the glass.

Try doing a search using AH-1Z crashworthy seat. The Z is equipped  them, previous AH-1 versions were not.

Look at my small walkaround I took at a local airshow back in 2012. Shows a little bit of the seat.
I have the album set on public so you should be able to see it even if not signed up.

Nice walkaround! Seems like they stow the belts behind the seat. Just wonder whether this could be a reason for not reproducing the seat belts by Academy.

Great pictures. What is that device stowed on the top of right side of the armor in the gunners cockpit? It's got 2 handles and a bunch of control switches. Thanks.

It’s a hand controller for the targeting system.  There is a similar one stowed on the left side pilot’s armor plate.  It’s basically like an Xbox controller.

Thanks Dave, does that controller connect to anything or does the gunner just hold it? Thanks.

The Mission Grip has all the functionality found on the Cyclic and Collective stick, allowing the pilot or gunner to use the full functionality of the TSS and weapons without having their hands on the controls.  Both seats have it but in practice it would generally only be used by the front seat (gunner).

 

(So yes it does do something)

Can any other non Facebook people access it? It is asking me for a login.
