View Full Version : Telescope Gunsights.

10-18-2004, 08:25 AM
Just wondering about planes that have the telescope gunsights rather than the reflector type. How will these work in PF?. will you have a button to look down the scope (severly negating your view i hope) or will there be planes with both reflector and telescope. Also will there be anything like dustcovers you have to take off the scope.....because ive notices you have feautures like opening canopies and things like that.......really looking forward to flying the KI-43 tho thanks for the hard work Oleg and Team!

Well, there was a screen shot of the telescopic sight in the SBD-3 the other day. If that is any indication, fighters with such a sight will be tough to fly.

I guess it'll get toggled with the bombsight key we have now. Some will get you closer information in 3 days http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If amazon delivers that fast..

I'm assuming it'll be a shift+F1 type deal like the bombsights now.
If that's how they are so mapped for you, but i assume it's simply "toggle bombsight"
I can't wait for this game!!

I was thinking about the button with which you switch to the bombsight in the He111 and TB3. Its mapped to Z on my config. Shift+F1 is also an idea..
BTW the poor europeans had to wait so long for FB and the Ace expansion pack.. An import version is not that cheap.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

So since its out in europe now any more info on this guys?? How exactly did they implemente these sights and another question is why (historically) did they use them? they seem like more trouble than they are worth.

Open (CTRL+D)

Zoom (SHIFT+F1)

Taken from the Val.

Is that the gunsight, the sight for divebombing, or both? Did the Val have any forward-firing guns? I can't remember if it did the last time I flew a Val in a flight sim.

Ok, those pictures are awesome, but can you take some pictures of you shooting something down in an Oscar, with a pic of your target in the zoom in site?

The Val has(in AotP anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) two 7.7 mm machineguns. Don't know about the sight though... seems to be the same?!

It's both the bombsight and crosshairs in the Val. For the bombsight, it's nothing elaborate, ie. no indicators of any kind. So it's: check your speed, check your dive angle (look out to the side), see if target is under crosshair, check altitude and release.

As the gun crosshair: we'll, you can't do any serious damage with those rifle calibers anyways...
