Try shooting at 800 meters with the Mk 108 ingame.
At that distance you hit across an area of about village size http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif .

Remember the cannons are all in the nose, nice and close. Besides 800m is fine for engaging large formations of heavy bombers, who really wants to get much closer than that?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

You dont need icons to tell the distance.
You need to know that a fighter with a wingspan of 10 meters at a distance of 100 meters fills the reticle horizontaly.
A fighter that fills half the reticle is 200 meters aways etc.
A Bomber with a wingspan of 30 meters is ( surprise ) 300 meters away when he fills the reticle.
He is 600 meters away when he fills half the reticle and so forth.

And yes, they are visible way beyond 2 klicks ingame.
About 6 klicks when you count the dots if I recall correctly.

EDIT
And keep in mind that convergence is important even with nose mounted armament because it is also applied verticaly.
