How many enemy aircraft has PAF shot down with non-US aircraft in its history? Few F6 kills in '71 maybe?
Yep F-6 (Chinese Mig-19) were credited with around 10 Victories.

Day Twelve: December 14

Indian troops entered the suburbs of Dacca and continued to push forward, their advance supported from the air with MiG-21FLs striking a number of key targets in Dacca; the most notable was a rocket attack on the East Pakistan governor's house. During the raid, the governor was said to have written his resignation on a scrap of paper while taking cover in a ditch.

Simultaneously, in the west India began a drive against Shakargarh, a salient of Pakistani territory near Lahore that juts into India, and launched a similar effort against Naya Chor in the Sind Desert. The Indian Air Force bombed rail lines, trains and marshalling yards in northern and central Pakistan to lessen the flow of supplies to forward units; the Indian Air Force also bombed Pakistani airfields and radar sites. One MiG-21 was downed by Pakistani antiaircraft while attacking the Badin radar station.

The Pakistan Air Force bombed airfields at Pathankot, Amritsar and Srinagar. Sabres engaged Gnat fighters in a dogfight over Srinagar, with both sides losing planes.

Meanwhile, the Pakistanis flew large numbers of close support sorties in the Shakargarh, Sialkot and Zafarwal areas, destroying eighteen tanks, many guns and armored personnel carriers. A number of dogfights took their toll during the strikes. A Pakistani F-6 pilot shot down an Indian MiG-21, Sabres destroyed an Indian observation aircraft, and other Pakistani planes damaged a number of Indian fighter-bombers.

The aft seat HUD is pretty useless, or so it seems to me. You only get to see the back of the front guy's seat...In the below pictures it doesn't even seem to be turned on.

The rear set HUD is not needed as the guy at the back is not involved in flying. The reason for hUD is that the pilot flies the plane without taking eyes off the surroundings or off the flight info.

None of American planes have the rear seat HUD.
