It's nothing like the meters on Western aircraft. And since I just got TrackIR 4 Pro, I'm for the first time really looking at the meters. Could somebody help?

Its a "double spin" gauge. The first rotation of the indicator needle, you read the outside set of numbers. Once you surpass the highest outside set of numbers, start reading the inside set of numbers.

The below pic is reportedly a Japanese airspeed indicator. It doesn't show the same set of numbers we have in the game, apparently.

It should be noted, that the Zero's A/S indicator reads in Knots, not Kmh.
