"Since the game is expanding into 1946 'what ifs', the real question isn't 'did the p38s have the k-14 in sufficient numbers during the war?' its 'would they have been deployed with k-14s in sufficient numbers in this ficticious alternate war scenario we are setting up?'"

I am pulling off trick shots like Annie Oakley on amphetamines in a P-51 without a gyro sight right now, so I couldn't care less...I mean I really can't beleive I'm getting so many strikes at ~400 meters. Maybe I'm on a hot streak right now but man I made a Bf 109 crumble into little pieces from almost half a klick away last night, so I'm not seeing a reall big need for a K-14...in real life, some US pilots didn't care for them at all, btw.

Exactly.

I have not heard if this is modeled in the add-on, but there was something like a 2 sec delay for the K-14 to work its magic. A lifetime in air combat. I will stick to the fixed sight. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Shouldn't be any delay if you continuously adjust the range while closing. Probably will have to remap to find two adjacent keys . . .or rocker switch on hotas throttle . . . http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

This is why old timers tended to stick with what they knew (109, MK8 gunsight, etc.) because you really don't want to be learning new skills while your life is on the line. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Yes and no. K-14 would be nice to have, but it's not a requirement. With practice, the N-9 will work out just fine.

I voted no. However it would be nice if we had a choice.

My father worked for Lockheed & helped in the design of the Lightning as well as many other Lockheed aircraft. He was there when the X-71(engine test version of the SR-71) blew up on the tarmac. Test pilot(think his name was Scotty iirc) lived due to the excellent design of the cockpit. Because of my fathers involvement with the Lightning I have strong feelings for it.

Exactly. Like any sight, if you learn how to use it correctly, the N9 is just fine.

BTWM nice to see you Teuful
