The gunsight in the real Bf-109 was off-center, to the right, and this is modeled in IL-2. Query: is there a way to use/see the cross-hairs in the game?

Press "Ctrl + F1"

Is it Ctrl-F1 or Shift-F1? I don't remember because I've binded it to one of my joystick buttons. Whatever combination it is, it works for any other plane with off-center or covered sight as well.

Cheers - Art

Cheers - Art Yes you're right.... CTRL+F1 gives you open pit, while SHIFT+F1 centers the gunsite.

Also use CTRL+D to remove protective caps on D3A, F2A and Ki-43-I. CTRL+D on other axis aircraft usually means that you put some tinted glass on crosshair (helps you aim when target is between you and sun).

In Macchi 205, use CTRL+D to toggle between crosshair variants, IMHO second option is better than default gunsite. But that's just me.

Use <Toggle Sight Mode (Auto)> (first, you must map some key or key combination to it it is located under GUNSIGHT/BOMBSIGHT CONTROLS) to toggle between P-51D20NA's gunsight options..... you can toggle gyro gunsite this way which may help you aim. They called this gunsite "ace maker" BTW http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the helpful responses. In re the friendy manual, which I have read several times: when you know that "Toggle gunsight" means "Move the gunsight over so you can use it," everything makes sense. But the manual doesn't tell you that.

Indeed several phrases in the controls section can cause confusion... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

The manual made perfect sense in the original Russian...

Yeah, surprised me some time ago when I found this goodie, a night mode of the gunsight.
