The center console is in a certain senses the main console of the F-16. It integrates the following components:
- the center block with an own small glare-shield,
- the integrated control block (ICB) which holds the ICP and the HUD,
- the right and left front panels which hold the corresponding MFD,
- a glare-shield, which holds the eyebrow lights.
As far as everything is working fine in the cockpit, the pilot will concentrate on the HUD
, which are all located at the center console right in front of the pilot's head.
