For the Fw190A-8 the guns wereset up:

Harmonization (vertical)

MG131 > 400m
MG151/20(inner) > 550m
MG151/20(outer) > 550m

Crossover (horizontal)

MG131 > parallel
MG151/20(inner) > 600m
MG151/20(outer) > 400m

For the P-51

Some math can calculate the meeting point.

you can't change each individual gun can you?

No I don't, I usually set a convergence point for all the guns at 150m, this is devestating, especially when flying a jug and place a Tiger in the convergence...... The .50 can take them out, you know /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Wow, that's cool, you've actually set your convergence at 5 meters /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

200 m for guns or cannons good enough

any plane, any country

Depends on the situation and plane, my default is 200m, but for the Me 262 I use 400m and for the Fw 190D9's I use 175m for cannons. If I will be doing mostly close quarters work, I set it to 150-175m, if I'm going to do mostly high speed attacks then I use 200m.

As we all know, the Soviet Union had too many fighter pilots during WW2. So Stalin's scientists came up with a brillient way to solve this problem. They would make some of their pilots fly British made Hurricanes. The Hurricane was an uber flying coffin. It was designed to maximize pilot kills by providing nothing but fabric and a few wooden spars around the cockpit. This setup prevented the pilot from escaping easily while at the same time not interfering with enemy bullets and shrapnel trying to pass through it. The rest of the Hurricanes structure was designed to ricochet bullets and shrapnel into the cockpit. And thanks to the cockpits superb design, all of them would pass through the cockpit and the pilot inside with little difficulty. Of course the Hurricane's designers didn't stop there. In order for the Hurricane to become a flying coffin, they had to make it easy to shoot. They did this by making the Hurricane the slowest monoplane fighter in use at the time and even gave it a very bulky shape so that it would be easy to spot and hit. The final feature of the Hurricane was its ability to bury or cremate itself. And because it was made of biodegradable materials, the Hurricane was environmentally friendly after it buried itself. Because of these brillient features, the Hurricane was a perfect flying coffin and helped the Soviets solve the pilot surplus they were suffering.
