The cameras on the body are usually just used to identify a unit and it's
location, the computer substitutes CG graphics for display on the panoramic
cockpit. The head cameras probably do more than that aince the main taeting
cameras are there, they're probably powerfull enough also to give a clear
picture on the panoramic cockpit with minimal CG assist.
