What? I wasn't aware of that?

Current FB P-51 is using an older type of gunsight, when it should be using the K-14. Why this is so, I have no idea. But the K-14 is comming in AEP.

Did I mis-read Ki-14 as Ki-84? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

LMFAO. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


OK then what is Ki-84 sight? What's the diference between it and the current sight?

The gunsight is K-14 not Ki-14 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
There is no Ki-84 gunsight, but it's better to have Ki-84 in your gunsight than the other way around http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The pony currently has an N9 (historical) gunsight.
It will be getting a K-14 (predicting) gunsight in the AEP add on.

I hope they keep the N-9 as an option. Some pilots did not like the K-14.

the k-14 had two modes, lead computing and static.

Cardinal,
was it's usage in static mode similar to the N9 then?
I wonder how much of it's funcionality ( in lead computing mode) will be modelled in FB-

that's ok Extreme..good recover attempt on the second post..

If only Magister__Ludi had answered: "A Ki-84 gunsite is a gunsite in a Ki-84." http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

then you could have played it off, with:

I think we will be getting D's with both N9s and K14s, though i am not sure.
