Anyone know what that thing is sticking up above the back seater's position?

It's a mirror/periscope to allow the back seater to have forward view.

Normally the periscope should be up only for take-off and landing as it has a low speed limit (less than 400 kts in the up position).

To visitor from Romania:
400 kts = ~740 kph
Il-78 has refueling speed at 400-600 kph
600 < 740
So what's a problem for periscope? ;)
