I don't know where I saw it, but somewhere in these forums there was something about a rear view available in the Mosquito?

Say what? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif Call me crazy, but I can't find any rear view in the Mossie, let alone, a second cockpit position.

Am I missing out on something?

Cheers,

Eh? Can't you switch to the engine nacelle gunner's 20mm position by pressing "C?" It should be automatically mapped to that key on installation.

r u perhaps confused with the ability to see through the Mossie's wing roots from the cockpit as pointed out recently?

Go into Gunsight view and look behind you. It appears that you are sitting on the arm rest of your seat. This 'cuddling up' to the navigator has obviously frightened him to such an extent that he has bailed out. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, so he was serious? I thought he was being facetious.

I'll give it a try. Thanks.

It doesn't really help, as most of what you can see is the armoured headrest.

for me the rearview in the Mosquito is better than i would have expected ( if im in the SIGHT view), espacially over the right shoulder.

and if i think about the Beaufighter or the Tempest or the Ki43-I ...............

Yes i dont think the rear view is very realistic.I doubt in real life you would see much behind you.

Aye, but in RL there was a Nav sat next to you who could turn round and spend all his time watching 6...esp. during a combat.

Rear views better than the Tempest, just kick the rudder and you get a good view of whats behind you .
