When the Indian Air Force's Mirage-2000 fighters are upgraded, their cockpits will end up looking like the photo above, a snapshot of the Mirage-2000-V cockpit design that was frozen in 1997 by Dassault and Thales.

Let's see if the government and Dassault can agree on a price. Looks sticky right now, though!
