For the past couple of years I've flown using metric units i.e. speed in km/h, altitude in meters and even having IAS/TAS charts using the same metric calibration pinned to the wall...well you know... I have got used to the metric sytem now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

When using the Norden bombsight, all that goes out the window. I cannot flip between metric and imperial units when setting up the bombsight like I can with the speed bar. The bombsight seems to be fixed with imperial units of measurement.

Additionally, the original game has the IAS/TAS chart published only in metric.. nothing in imperial.

Can the bombsight HUD be fixed so it displays/toggles units in metric/imperial i.e. so it displays the same as that in the speed bar... and additionally publish an imperial IAS/TAS chart?
