I have noticed this rhombus / Square shape with a dot in the middle in the bottom right corner to the left of my health while flying the jet. What is this for?

I was thinking either ECM / flares, but there is a countdown on the jets hud (in the middle of the screen), so why would it be here? I can't be laser designation as I don't have it equipped...Still unsure about this. – Zero Stack Feb 27 '14 at 14:26
Pretty sure it is missles of some sort, that is usually where the gernade symbol is when on foot. – Dupree3 Feb 27 '14 at 14:32

It is countermeasures (Flares, ECM) counter. There is also indicator on vehicle screen (it changes between 'ready' and reload timer).
