1)How does one use/engage the periscope in the AR-234? 2)How does one aim the X-4 missles in the game? I believe they were fly by wire in real life.

Didn't work. Do I have to configure buttons in the "controls" section?

From the IL-2 46 Readme

" X-4 Rocket

The X-4 air-to-air rocket is wire guided. All rocket-carrying aircraft (Ta-152C, Ta-183 and Heinkel Lerche III) have a single rocket control module, and as such can guide only one rocket at a time. When launching multiple rockets simultaneously, only the last rocket fired can be guided.

To guide the rocket, use the ?Increase Sight Attitude?, ?Decrease Sight Attitude?, ?Adjust Sight Control to Right? and ?Adjust Sight Control to Left? keys. We recommend assigning them to the Up, Down, Right, and Left arrow keys correspondingly.

The easiest way to guide the rocket to target is to fire from the target?s six-o-clock level while flying on the same course. Guide the rocket to keep the lights on top of the target with no visible lateral movement until the moment of impact. Use gentle taps to provide last-minute guidance. The rockets detonate remotely, so no direct impact is required.

This method should be used to attack non-maneuvering heavy bombers from 3,000 to 3,500 meters away.

NOTE: The guiding wire is not visually modeled."

Yes, you will need to set these controls manually in the Controls section of the sim.

Without testing or reading the aircraft guide, two options immediately spring to mind..Shift-F1 (toggle gunsight) and Ctrl-D (toggle reticle dimmer)....yep, a quick check of the aircraft guide confirms...Shift-F1.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
