    Introduced in 1982 in MiG-29. It allowed for the first time the look at shoot at ability, in conjunction with OLS-29 optical and laser system which is slaved to the pilot's head movement and the R-73 missile which has high off boresight ability whose heat sensor is slaved to the pilot's head movement before the missile is fired.

    True, but BVR is not that useful because of curvature of Earth. If enemy plane is 100 km from you, he be already below the horizon for your radar to find.

    Na you can say 400 KM that below horizon,but not for 100 Km its to close to take effect, but to compensate this Most major powers using AWACS for this purpose @undertakerwwefan :angel:

    The first aircraft with simple HMD devices appeared for experimental purpose in the mid-1970s to aid in targeting heat seeking missiles. These rudimentary devices were better described as Helmet-Mounted Sights. Mirage F1AZ of the SAAF (South African Air Force) used a locally developed helmet-mounted sight. This enables the pilot to make bore attacks, without having to maneuver to the optimum firing position. South Africa subsequently emerged as one of the pioneers and leaders in helmet-mounted sight technology. The SAAF was also the first air force to fly the helmet sight operationally. The US Navy's Visual Target Acquisition System (VTAS), made by Honeywell Corporation was a simple mechanical "ring and bead"–style sight fitted to the front of the pilot's helmet that was flown in the 1974–78 ACEVAL/AIMVAL on U.S. F-14 and F-15 fighters

    However the first HMD used operationally is Shchel-3UM.

    First basic HMD was on Mirage F1AZ as @DavidSling say but you can say that first fully developed HMD was Shchel 3UM @undertakerwwefan

    That's why I said Shchel 3UM is the first operational HMD in the 1980s. And I am correct. Likewise, JF-17 introduced the first operational DSI in 2006 (prototype stage) and 2010 (service stage) even though F-16 tested it in the 1990s.

    Wrong... get your facts right as always.... SAAF's was the first one to develop this system in the 70's on F1s and then moved it to Mirage IIIs. Soviets picked this up from Angola encounters and moved to bring into their air force.

    Man you as usual are a bullshitter at el.

    @waz please get this troll under control.

    Correct Altas was the first one to build and operate this; during the angola operations that is when they found out about this in the early encounters between Mig21s and F1AZ.
    Dont waste time with the idiots who are just trolls or kids who have no operational or were there in these organisations.

    I wish Hensoldt Optronics South Africa (formerly Denel Optronics, formerly Carl Zeiss Optronics) would make a next-gen HMD/S. The market is heavily monopolized right now (by the Israelis).
