The reticles are not painted on the glass, they are reflected off it. In early versions of the reflector sight, the reflector was part of the sight but in some late war aicraft the reticle was projected straight onto the cockpit armoured windshield. IIRC there are one or two flyable aircraft already in the game that work the same way.

The Tempest's gunsight is similar to the Corsairs. It projects onto a large screen or in this case the windscreen itself. This is yet another reason why the Tempest was quite a well designed aircraft...the gunsight was incredibly unobstructive to the pilots view.

This was not initially standard in the Typhoon but late model Typhoons also got this modification.

I'm pretty sure the meteor also had the gunsight projected directly onto the canopy as well.
