...from 275, in Fw 190. Either a placebo, or my shots begun to count /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif .

The difference is immense. I mean, now every burst which connects sets the target planes on fire or at least does other major damage.

Note that I fly with icons off, thus I might be firing at shorter ranges than with icons on. This against fighters, I might be firing at bombers from greater ranges.

I less worry if have nose guns but some plane like early Spitfire have wide space guns then will have to lined wing up to emeny plane's wing to get effect if not in right range. Also poor effect if too short convergence when use in ground attack.

You lowered it to 200meters? LOL

I allready have them firmly set on 150 for two years!

I sometimes fire from longer range but, that is just to 'scare' the enemy and make him doing something stupid, perhaps. I'm not counting on any hits...

I use 200 for groundattacks.

Well, I'm new. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I flew with icons on for years, and this included firing at ranges of 300-500 yds/meters.

Note that, if you both travel at some few hundred kph, bullets actually have to travel a longer path until they connect than your distance is.

620-650m metres for me, except in the Hurricane and a few special situations (eg. I-16) in which I use 300m.

LOWERED to 200?

i would hardly call myself an expert, unless im attacking bombers with 30mm cannons, i have it set to 100 or 150... the closer the better, remember, 150m is still 1 and a half sprinting tracks... try to think of it in real world distances, something you can identify with, divided by the simulated speed you are going at, and the movement of the target... the closer the better



if you fly without icons, chances are your firing at 150-100m anyway... therefore lowering convergence is only making your shots closer together... a shot at convergence range usually kills VERY quickly.

100 is great when you plan on getting super close to your opponent but 200 is the best and works great for me. its also the best convergence when attacking bombers, anything closer than that will get you a phucked engine for sure.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Wow can you down a plane at 620 metres? Me I have to shoot forever even with cannon shells on distances larger than 350 metres on most targets...

I usually run 150 for machine guns and 200 for cannons
