Anyone know what size/details of Mils the various GunSights are for differnt planes or where to find out the info?

As far as size I believe form post that:

P51D Sight = 70Ml
Hurricane= 105Ml

I am just tryin to work through the whole gunsight/ distance / convergance thing for various scenarios.

Any help appreciated as always http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

someone posted this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpnJeM3wjew) vid a while ago - very in-depth and explains alot!

As for the actual reticle measurements for individual A/C then someone else will have to help you there...

In the game they are all or mostly all 100mil rings.

So basically every 100mil=10meters on a 100meter Rad?

Therefore if a 10Meters object (BF09) fills the 100mil(gunsight) circle it will be at 100meters?

If it fills Half = 200Meters

Quarter= 400Meters

??

Covergance is set in game in Meters ?

Doesn't work that way. It depends on the size of the target you're Mil'ing and will vary with each.

Thus the statement: Therefore if a 10Meters object (BF09) fills the 100mil(gunsight) circle it will be at 100meters?

Yes that is exactly it.

Funkster,
To compare reticle sizes, simply make sure you're zoomed all the way in and measure the on-screen diameter with a ruler!

This is valid because the principle of the optical gun sight ensures that the collimated image of the reticle will have a fixed apparent angular diameter, irrespective of the viewer's distance from it. (But get too far back from it and the reticle's image will not fit fully within the reflector plate. Note that this happens for some A/C when the virtual pilot's not in the "lean-forward-to-the-gun sight-view" position.)

For our purposes of comparison, the only prerequisite is a common field of view size. I recommend the smallest field size only so that the measurement is of highest accuracy.

You could do this test for all variations of gun sights (not necessary for all A/C, of course!) fielded by the represented nations in fairly short order, say, 15 minutes?

I have noticed that many reticle's are oval (on my screen)...they are wider(stretched) in the vertical then the horizontal.

Has anyone else noticed this?
