Hate to say it guys, but you just have this one wrong. Yes, this zero gradiation sight was used on the 2 pounder and all tanks mounting it, however it was not a universal sight.

The sight for the Churchill III through VII appeared like this:

It had fully functioning range settings. On the far right is the adjustment scale for your 7.9mm coaxial gun. On the left was the scale for AP rounds, and on the far left you could find the HE adjustment scale.

The Crusader III's was very simple. It was two bold lines that ran from the far right, left, top and bottom of the optic. When they got close to the center, they narrowed into a fine crosshair. On the right side of the horizontal line the letter L was marked, and under the left the letter R was marked.

The Vickers Mk. V was even more simple. It consisted of a pair of lines that converge at a 90 degree angle in the middle of the optic, starting from the top of the optic.

I know that it can't be perfect, and that functioning range gradiation will probably never be in any version of this mod, but getting the appearance of the sight is quite important in my opinion.

IIRC there was a thread on this topic about 6 months ago that linked to a site with images of all the different sights for British tanks. AFAIK the devs are aware of it :)

Hey sometimes the devs need a little reminder. ;) We will see what FH2 will bring.
