(NOTE: K-14 Gyro Gunsight does not work properly on low physics, sorry)
Well, I was working on other stuff when EpicPigster challenged me and F4f879 (his plane) to a P-47 off. So in sight of this, I decided to choose the P-47N-2 Meat Chopper, flown by ace pilot Oscar Francis Perdomo. With relatively simple writing and nose art, I set to work on this beauty.
Big thanks to @EpicPigster1 for recommending by more importantly helping out with this build the whole way through!
Features of the plane include:
- Working (partially) K-14 gunsight (instructions down below)
- Realistic Decals
- Custom cowl flaps
- Realistic landing gear
- And much more
TRIM + AG8 - TRIM tabs on the tail
VTOL - Flaps
AG1 - Open Canopy
AG2 + TRIM - Control width of gunsight
AG7 - Lights
I should note that it is far from perfect and I'd recommend not relying upon it during your dogfights. But anyways...
AG2 + TRIM - Set up gunsight span for the target plane, TRIM down for larger wingspan, vice versa.
Locate the green (default) and yellow reticle, aim yellow reticle onto the target, the green reticle should be towards the targets direction of travel.
The green reticle essentially becomes a lead indicator, which was a defining aspect of these gyro gunsights.
Once in desired position, proceed to fire!
