Deployed Su-27... With Ekran?

Recommended Posts

I was watching a youtube video earlier about the history / creation of the Su-27. A pilot was explaining about what he liked about the fighter and was doing a sort of talk around the cockpit. One thing I noticed was that the left hand side of the panel of warning lights was taken up by what the pilot described as an Ekran display - presumably the same Ekran system as the Ka-50 has.

 

Does anyone know if the currently deployed base-line Su-27s have been upgraded with the Ekran? It would be great to have this in DCS...

The Su27 has the panel on the right side, but it isn't functional. I did notice the old pre-6dof Su33 cockpit had a semiworking ekran panel. You can see it for yourself currently with mig29's that still have the old Lockon cockpit.

What would the Ekran even do in the 27?

 

I dont know. All it does in the Ka-50 is ask me to watch it constantly.

The Ekran would check and report the integrity of the on-board system. Same as the one in the Ka-50.

Nothing that useful for an FC3 level aircraft. It's not combat-focused anyway.

I assume it's why it's not simulated in the current Flanker.

The cockpit model seems to have everything it needs to come to life though.

The Su-27 has had the Ekran display since day one and its present in practically all Russian aircraft in the sim(Ka-50, Su-25T, MiG-29/-S, Su-27 and Su-33).

The Ekran display is an integrated part of the aircraft's events/failure indication system, which basically consists of 4 different items:

 

- master caution lamp

- varies warning lamps("announciators")

- Ekran display

- voice warnings

 

The master caution lamp is a general alert that tells the pilot that there is something he needs to check, the individual warning lamps tell him which paritcular part of the aircraft's systems it is and the Ekran can display more information about the problem and store several events.
