May I know if there are any turn and bank indicators on the pilots instrument panel and where is it located at?

As has been pointed out in other posts, the top right instrument, appears to be a VSI (white needle) with an overlaid bank indicator (gold dial) over a ball slip/skid indicator.

  • $\begingroup$ That's not a VSI, the scale is wrong and it doesn't have a negative indication for descent. I have a Cuban friend who trained in Russia, I will ask him what it is. $\endgroup$ Aug 7 at 0:53

    $\begingroup$ It goes 10-20-30 clockwise, and 10-20-30 counter-clockwise, as a VSI would. You posted the picture! ;) See also i.stack.imgur.com/liZTS.png $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Turns out you nailed it. Combo VSI with an appropriate range for the behemoth's performance, with turn and bank. My friend Guajirovich confirmed it. 🤣 $\endgroup$ Aug 7 at 1:54
  • $\begingroup$ And sadly, these questions and comments are all worded present tense. The An-225 had a turn and bank. :( $\endgroup$

Yes, it does. Top right instrument is a combination VSI and turn and bank.
