Well, I'm all for historic accuracy but the Ki43 gunsight makes it very hard to target aircraft...blocked by the tube ring. Anything that can be done to reduce this would make me want to fly this bird more often.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Go to gunsight view (shift+F1) and press the gunsight tinter key (ctrl+d) to use the sight. This is how all teloscoping sights in PF work. Other planes that have these are the D3A Val and SBD Dauntless.

BTW, the Ki-43 has by far the most accurate gunsight in PF, I normally can't hit much even when zoomed in but with that thing I can put a bullet in the cockpit at 300m.

I find i can actually bounce bullets in the exaust pipes, and into the engine blocks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've done that but the view is like having your eyeball up against the sight...no cockpit in the view..no zoom out...

I can't see why everyone is complainig about the Ki43 gunsight, it's great. My accuracy is much better with it and it doesn't have any big "one shot kill" cannons wich is just perfect and it handles well too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. I love the sight (as long as I'm shooting AI seafires anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif)

That's how it was. It's a telescope. You had to put your eye to it, and look thru it. Most pre-war fighters used it.

I like it. Not for the close-in, of course, nor fast bounces and head-ons, but once you have the poor guy inside, it's terribly accurate.

It's, in fact, the only way you can make profit of the Ki-43-Ia lame armament. Precission is all in this plane. And I've managed to shoot down bombers by sniping the engines with it.

A Spanish Civil War or early China scenario should make extensive use of telescopic sights.

Galland have a telescopic gunsight installed in his 109 during BoE for a short time. After my Ki-43 period in JAF campaign I can well figure why.

You could always fly with cockpit off. If you want to fly the Hayabusa but can't stand the scope, the Ki-34-II would be your kinda bird. Too bad it doesn't have a cockpit yet.
