I am looking for technical details about the soyuz tma, simvol displays and cockpit controls in general. Something like the NASA familiarization manuals, but for Soyuz. And in english :)

Can anyone point me to some resources? I've already seen that student simulator of docking (excellent) and own the Haines workshop manual, but more would be appreciated. I've even taken a lot of screenshots from Gravity movie.. :)

There is a good manual "Soyuz Crew Operations Manual (SoyCOM) (ROP-19) (Final) , Yu. A. Gagarin Cosmonaut's Training Center, NAS15-10110, 0004AE7a (ROP-19), April 1998" which is in English, although translated, it's an OK job.

You can find a copy at this page.

    $\begingroup$ Great news! I'll try a different browser. I have wanted to find one online so that I can use it for a reference in answers - I only have a paper copy.' $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 7, 2018 at 14:32
