2 pilots (in tandem)
I do not know the exact roles of the two but there are definitely 2 sets of controls.
My best guess is that the aft one is the left hand seat.
edit correction: co-pilot in the rear position.

You said "for the pilots".

I have therefore assumed there are also passengers.

I apologize for the rather poor screenshots but there are simply no cockpit photos on the internet

The instrument at the top right is used for underwing stores. Is this a strike aircraft?
