Yep. Or, perhaps for one of those 'tinfoil' hoods used when nuking a target! Although the backseater would be blinded, so not very likely.

I can confirm it is a blind instrument hood frame, loads of other twin-seater Su-27s have them given their conversion training role. It must block the rear crewman's view somewhat though.
