lol mate, reading the READMEs wont hurt you. I will save you of 5min of reading. Once when in game press CTRL+D

It is called "Tinted Reticle Dimmer" in Controls section. BTW it is D3A not D-1 dive bomber.
For example TRD control is also used on FW-190 and Bf-109 series to bring up 'darkened' glass in front of your gunsite to help you aim at target that is positioned itself between you and sun.

That is what you guys are for. After all you spend so muchg time here you may as well qualify as a "living" resource for the game lol

/O Salute mate

Anyway you can press also SHIFT+F1 to toggle telescopic gunsite (if the plane has it), like F2A or Ki-43. It works well on dive bombers you mentioned too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

SHIFT+F1 will also center gunsight on most of the axis planes. Notice when you start a mission in a FW-190 for instance how the gunsite is off-centere, to center it press SHIFT+F1.

Funny thing. I don't see that anywhere specifically mentioned in README (PF) or Manual.

So I guess you could not know that by reading those documents. However that question has been asked many times on forum, I guess RTFM does not work on this one lol http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
