Is this the only plane that has a tinted targeting crosshair????

Is it supposed to be tinted????

In bad weather & night missions, it is absolutely impossible to see through it.

That, Combined with the muzzle blast, spray & pray takes on a whole new meaning. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I can't hit anything under these conditions.

I'm not whining, I just would like some clarification.

Thanks Guys

I don't think it's the gunsight itself, I think it's the armourplate glass on the front winscreen. But yeah, it does make seeing your target very difficult. That's why I don't fly the Yak 9.

Yeah that's what I'm refering to...the tinted glass around the crosshair.

This is one of my favorite planes, but even in broad daylight its difficult to see through it.

I guess I have to switch to the YAK-3 until and if its changed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

The Yak 3 as a much better view for sure.

Most are tinted some, except MiG~3, its so nice to look through after squinting through Yak and La gunsights. I love it.

P~47 is ~very~ dark too, last I looked (long long ago mmmm)

To me the tinted glass and guided reticle are 2 of the worst design decisions in this sim. Closed cockpit would be noticably more enjoyable without them.
