Can someone tell me what the notches mean as far as distance goes for the 109 and 190s? As well as full circle?

What about the tempest?

Dont no if its true but i heard that the circle will fit a british spitfire at 300 yards/274 meters but not sure about the notches. this is a very interesting question http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

The full circle in the 109/190 is a ranging device, giving 1:10 diameter:range ratio.

It works this way:
Take the wing of any airplane and make it fit the circle (example-wingspan 10m).
If the wingspan and the circle are congruent, the airplane is conna be 100m away.
A B-17 with 30m wingspan will be 300m away.

etc

I really dont no, that was for the 190 and the 109 but it might apply to the tempest although i doubt it

Cmon over 150+ views and no one knows what the notches in the 109 and 190 gun sights mean?

Use the notches as a scale. An airplane with a 10m wingspan fills the circle wing tip to wing tip when it is 100m away; when that same airplane's wings fill half the circle's diameter (as judged by the notches), then you know the airplane is 200m away.

Hi mate, take a look here:

Also notice that the notches described not only the distance but and the "Angle Of Attack" and "Angle Off" of the enemy plane...
