Anyone has any information about, how rare was it, or not?
This back-plate had better view to backwards.

So it says from the G-1 pressurized canopy, they made a special back-armor, what is looked like this:
(G-2/G-4 had the same)

I think he's referring to alternative head armour on some G-2s as on the G-1.

 

I have no idea how common this was.

The heck? The third picture is a pressurized G-2.

And:

But I guess it was rare.

Looks like this type of back-armor was only for pressurized canopies.
G-1s(167 plane), G-2(20-80 planes) had some,G-3s(50 planes) G-4(10-20 planes) had some, and there was the G-5s(475 planes) what had the same back-armor/maybe galland-panzer.
792 plane in summary.
G-5:

So in the future, the if the developers would model it in the game, it would make everybody happy. I guess :)
