It seems that the sights on these airplanes are covered or something. Is there a key sequence to open them?

That did it. Thanks. Some of the details in this thing do get a little rediculous. If I were a Ki-27 pilot I would have had that thing open before I started the engine. It didn't seem to take long for the IJA to get rid of that stupid sighting device anyway.

Not stupid at all. Don't forget to switch to gunsight view with Shift-F1 once you open it. It's like a sniper scope, alowing you to pull incredible deflection shots with scary accuracy. Ki-27 and Ki-43 are actually the only planes in which I can effectively aim for different parts of enemy plane in a dogfight.

Ins't there a early Wildcat or Bwester version with scope sight as well?

And I wouldn't open it before I start the engine and the entire plane in fact.

Dust from a plane taking off in front of you might ruin your day...

In the sim, the only other plane with a telescopic gunsight is the F2A-2 at the moment. The F2A-3, also with such a sight, was on Oleg's "still to be introduced" list, though whether it actually will be released remains to be seen.

The early Dauntless has a telescopic sight too

A5M4 has telescopic sights I think.

A5Ms are not flyable in this sim. BTW, most Spanish Civil War planes (including early I-16s), had telescopic sights. It was the best they had in the mid 30s.
