I noticed something in the cockpit of an La-7.On the starboard console there is a "guage" or something resembeling an oval bisected by a white line.At regular intervals it "winks".One time it's the oval mentioned above,about a second or so later,the ovals black areas are white.The regular interval makes me tend to believe it's part the oxygen system.

Anyone seen the same?Anyone know what it is?

This is what I love about Il2/Il-2FB.Every time I fly I notice A new detail.

Merry christmas to the lot of ya!

It looks like some kind of oxygen-thing.
Some inhale/exhale-indicator the pilot can use,
to confirm the system is working as it should.

Cool anyway.

Just tried it for a few secs. Didn't seem to be active at low level (makes sense), but at 7500 m, it changed in a breathing-like tempo. If you yank the stick abit / pull a few Gs, it changes faster / flickers etc. Neat! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yes I believe it was called "iron curtain" used for brief periods of time it rendered the russian plane invunerable to any type of gun fire

I was gonna ignore this thread, but looking further that`s a really cool find. I`ll check it out next time I fly. The ironic thing is noone`s hardly gonna notice it, but great anyway. That`s attention to detail!
