Why is it that evertime i press ctrl+D in a german aircraft, I get an purple thing added to the gunsight?

What is this thing and what was it used for?

Nothing can instill fear in an enemy you're following like a tinted reticle in their mirror...

I believe this dimmer was used not to be blinded by the sun.Kinda like sunglasses.Works fine ingame too.

Sole purpose of Ctrl-d IS to put that thing there (reticle dimmer).

Try aiming at the bogey that's trying to flee towards the sun.

That's a crappy pair of shades if you ask me.
