why is it that in the jug one can only view half of the mirror in wide view? the mirror seems to work in all other planes (can see the whole mirror in the P38).

Because the Jug was such a huge A/C, you would have to have 2 monitors one on top of the other to model it to scale. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Actually, it's because the P-47 is so deadly that Oleg felt to give it a functional mirror would leave it with too much of an advantage.

Jug pilots were known to be a vain breed. RBJ used to fly the Jug, to prove a point.

President Roosevelt had a bill passed to make the mirror on the Jug half its original size in order to keep the pilot´s attention on the battlefield as opposed to his "perm".

chris455 threw the ball, I just had to stretch my arms to catch it, and I ain´t letting go...
