Please post here to give insight as to how best to use the D10 and D22 gunsight. With the cockpit framing making for a very tricky sight picture, I would like to have some tips from the experts as to how they do it.
If you fly a razorback online or off, in FR, I'd like to hear from you. Thanks-

Well, so far I've pretty much used it in a similar manner as the Bf-109 and Fw-190. Approaching from dead six and hope your opponent doesn't see you.

I really only fly the D-27, so I honestly can't say.

Thanks Korolov.
An approach from directly astern would alleviate the "blind lead" phenomenon caused by all the framing. I think if I continue to use the D10 I may have to adjust my style of fighting somewhat-
S!

Its not too bad if you sort of compensate for the view. I usually attack from the enemies port side so that I can see them a bit better without the big bar in the way. The overall view from the razoback isn't bad but it aint fantastic for your aim. Lots of guestimation fire...which after a while, you get pretty good at. FW190 pilots will especially be good at this.
