I dunno if this has been in any other thread...
anyway, how come the gunsight of the p40 looks diffrent from outside than compared with how it looks from cockpit... from outside its just basicly a cross mounted on the engine cowling. (this is also the way it looks in CFS2 when flying that plane) But from the inside u cant see that cross at all but instead u have a normal gunsight like any other plane...
is there a reason for this? what type did most p40 have?!
cheers!
