An advanced cockpit video monitor system first introduced in Shinsei Industries YF-19 variable fighter in 2040. The wrap-around imaging monitor mounts thin video panels on opaque sections of the cockpit interior displaying the environment outside the craft with perfect image quality. In conjunction with the cockpit canopy, the wrap-around monitors grant the pilot a nearly 360 degree field of vision. In Battroid mode, a polygon frame with many monitors surrounds the cockpit to provide a full video view of the exterior environment. After successful trials in the YF-19, the wrap-around imaging monitor system was included in most next generation fighters including the VF-17 Nightmare, the VF-19 Excalibur and the VF-171 Nightmare Plus. The VF-25 Messiah cockpit appears to bypass the wrap-around monitor system in Fighter and GERWALK modes (instead relying upon holographic targeting) but utilizes a slightly improved wrap-around monitor for the Battroid mode.
