From discussions in this forum on the new BOB sim, i understand that the pilot can move his head anywhere in the cockpit.
The advantage of reflector gunsights, equipped vith a fresnel lens, is that the gunsight is projected into infinity.
This means that whenever the gunsight is visible trough the lens the guns are alligned vith target, regardless of head position.

Will this be implemented in BOB ?

it's already in FB

just "unlink" your head from the gunsight (shift+F1) and you'll see that the "ring" floates around the gunbsight as your head moves. You can even aim and fire that way (in german planes, you may have trouble though, since the gunsight is shifted to the right http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ), it works... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think it might be under one of the difficulty settings, I'm just guessing here as I have most of them on, but there is one called "head shake" or something like that, and I'm guessing that that is what it does.

I don't know, if I fly a plane without having "steady aim head position" (shift+F1), the reticle is moving on the gunsight, showing it's "projected to infinity"
