Yes, there should be a mirror inside the top of the windscreen on the Hellcat, but I don't think it was ever there in the IL2 series. Of course, the ammunition load for it's machine guns isn't correct either, and that has yet to be addressed by a patch.

I don't think they were ever modeled in the first place.

Quite some time ago I started a thread on this very subject and as was suggested sent an email with the mirror information to RRG Studios. I cited references ( Hellcat Aces of World War 2 by Barrett Tillman, Osprey Books ) which clearly showed combat aircraft in theater with the mirrors in both the F6F-3 and F6F-5 Aircraft. The mirror was attached to the non moving frame of the canopy just to the rear of the windscreen at the top.

Puss never had the mirror. I am a big Hellcat user and have always been annoyed by this error from the day PAC FIGHTERS was released.

Nope, mirror was never modeled in the IL2 version of the Hellcat. Yes, it should be there, but it never was and likely never will be.
