well the writing say recovered from tail of Mig 21. does this means it was fired upon. And it opens up a new debate. was there a dog fight or it was from ground based gun.
Read again....slowly.....it says recovered from the wreckage of MiG-21......Tail Number CU2328.

JHMCS is used by 9,11 as well apart from 5th Sq. There are plenty of pictures of it. However, I am not sure in what numbers. Don't know about 19th.

However, with block 3 I hope that this becomes a standard item in JF fleet (With block 1&2 after retrofit).
Pitty, F-16s have HMS but no high off-bore sight missile (aim-9x).

Jf-17 blk3 is flying with high off boresight missile (pl-10) but HMS remains a challenge (AM May issue mentions only HMD).

It doesn't say from the tail instead mentioning tail number of aircraft.

JHMCS can still be used for some other stuff IIRC.

Waiting anxiously for B 3 new helmets.

Helmet mounted display hmd

Helmet mounted sight hms

Hmd are more advance and carry more information plus weapons launch cues

Hms are simple and use to shoot

So hmd is better but now days hms/hmd are used synonymously
