I guess this is old news, but I stumbled across it by chance.

Shift F1 will move the pilots head enough to enable you to keep track of whatever the heck you want to keep looking at. Great ~

But in the SBD Helldiver, it gives you the 'scope' view.

I'm completely noooooooooooooooooooobish so maybe it was even in FB and just didn't know. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

It's been there since the original IL2 Sturmovik. It moves the pilots head into the position it needs to be to use the gunsight, essential on the German aircraft with their sights offset to the right, and even more so on the new telescopic sights on the SBD and the Japanese dive bomber.

It also activates the bombsight when occupying the bombardier postion in the medium and heavy bombers.

Have you noticed that as a gunner in the SBD( maybe Val too, Idon't know) when you look all the way forward you can see the pilots head turning to look around the sky??? Very nice touch if PF - too bad it isn't in FB as well!

Yeah, but if you squint your eyes just right you can make believe!
