Ah, ok...
One is the Wide Angle Raster (WAR). Normally found on some block 40/42 (USAF) but not others (some but not all Turkish AF) and some block 52 (some ROKAF, but not all).
The other is a Wide Angle Collimated (WAC) found on block 50/52 and some block 40.

the WAC HUD is the standard Viper HUD. The larger WAR HUD was on the Block 40s to display LANTIRN Navigation pod Forward Looking IR imagery to the pilot, the imagery being in a raster format, hence the name.
