Hello guys!

Yesterday I just stumbled upon this feature while playing some COOP in a P-51. I pressed the "Sight mode" button and the gunsight changed to a gyro+static gunsight, then to only gyro, and back to only static again! You could also set the range of the gyrosight!

I didn't know this was possible http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif really cool feature. As far as I know it only works with the P-51 and the P-80.

Now on the other hand can someone help me with gunsight functions? If you look at the A6M2 zero, you'll see it has a reflector gunsight, and next to it is a regular metal crosshair thingy. Is there any key that can flip up the metal gunsight so it can be used? Same with the A-20.. It has a gunsight folded up in the cockpit?

Nope you cant set it manually, i know in the Zero sometimes when the reflector gunsight is shot up the ring and bead sight will flip up automatically. However, it seldom happens because if you're getting shot at in a Zero you often end up dead before you get to see it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Never seen it in the A-20 though...

But if you fly the I-153 you get both a reflector and a metal ring sight at the same time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
