The Coluber HUD CH01 is a fully featured HUD with individual scales for each gauge and additional control lights for important equipment. It is developed and produced by Coluber Works and Shipyards inc. in the Riredi system.

Especially cargo-ship pilots like the HUD because it has an extra big scanner and additional control lights for important equipment.
