To be honest, I think it's just a model they used.

If you can believe it, this was basically a supercomputer in the 1960's-ish ERA.

Even the smartphones today outdo the technology used to aviate and reach the moon back then, but it is interesting seeing how control panels have changed over time, now it is fairly simple with just a lot of different controls.

I fly a little myself, although it's been awhile. So just thought I would give my view.

Also a little side note, the Vostok 1 was launched from the Baikanour Cosmodrone, Treyarch really did do their research for this game :D

I hope they are doing some research right now for another game...

Nice find [brains]

gosh they really put a lot of work into making this look legit, they even copied the EXACT control panel from the Vostok I and the centrifuge from baikonur!
