    What are your personal faves for in cockpit gunsights? I like the types found on spits and hurricanes as they allow for a much better view. Opinions??

    The sight in the Finnish Brewster is nice, apart from that I prefer the Spit/Hurri-sights.

    I rather like the one in the IAR-80. Just something about the early sights that catches my eye.

    Besides that the Spitfire's, and the Warhawk's. Not sure why I like the latter's, I just do...

    The K-14 sight on the P-51D is nice.

    The telescopic sight on the Ki43 is good because you can aim real well with it. But the limited view leads to target fixation.

    The MC.200 series also have cool gunsights.

    What are the ones with the angled piece of glass, and how did that work? I saw one at the Mustangs & Legends Airshow last week, and told my brother they are a kind of WW2 HUD, because in IL2 we see the gunsight designator in them. But I don't have a clue how they worked...

    Deflector sights? They worked with mirrors, that's all I know.

    All sights in all planes are good when you have an enemy aircraft in them.
