OK. Now relax. I am assuming you mean that on the K-14 gunsight, there are only a few German aircraft listed.

I am further assuming that you feel that this limits your ability to use the gunsight.

This is a WWII type of technology we are talking about. Just because "A6M5" isn't on the gunsight, does not mean you cannot accurately use the gunsight on a Zero. Or a B-17, or a La-7.

The aircraft listed around the edge of the sight changes the pipper (gyro sight recticle) to the corresponding wingspan of the selected aircraft type, at the selected range.

A lot of players seem to miss the point that the range can be changed. A lot still further seem to miss that we are not adjusting a modern computerisied sight here: the range is set by re-sizing the pipper. The aircraft type is also choosen by resizing the pipper. Just because "MiG3U" isn't on the sight, it doesn't mean that you can't select an aircraft of similar type (this would be 'Bf109'), and by slightly resizing the pipper manually (by using the increase and decrease commands), use the K-14 as accurately as you would on a 'listed' aircraft. You do not need to know the target's exact range, or wingspan out to the last millimeter. Select a similar aircraft from the list on the sight, and adjust the pipper manually if you like, and use the sight normally. No problem http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif The aircraft list is just wingspans, nothing fancy. Just a distance to measure from, so that the center of the pipper hits the fuselage when the target's wings stretch from one side of the pipper to the other.

Instructions on how to use the K-14 should be made a sticky post
