This was talked about in the main thread, but I think the reticle for the scope on the k98zf should be semi-transparent in order to allow you to adjust for bullet drop by aiming above your target and still seeing it. This might not be an issue IRL where the shooter could move his eye a bit to see above the black line but in FH it is counter-productive to the sniper's role.

Er, you want to be able to see through the crosshairs?

It doesn't work that way. In "real life", moving your eye in relation to the lens does not change where the crosshair is placed. It will still be on the target you're aiming at, and it will still be blocking your view. In fact, what happens is that some of the scope will "black out" because you're viewing through the sight at a bad position, also known as poor eye-relief.

Just practice, you'll get used to it.

It makes you wonder why they didn't or don't turn it 180*. In fact, I think the Russians do that with their new AK scopes from what I've seen at the PR forums. At least the states and Canada have those (is it reflex? I'm not up to date with this stuff...:lookaround:oops) scopes with a red dot. *slinks away*

Pretty much all modern assault rifles are equipped with some sort of parallax-free reflex sight. In the case of red-dot sights, such as the US M68 Aimpoint, there is a small diode mounted on the inner wall of the optic that, when lit, bounced a red light off the front lens and back through the rear lens. Holographic sights use exactly the same principles of projection that reflector gunsights of WWII vintage used, also used in modern HUD systems.

If by they you mean the Germans... Well, "they" didn't use either one of these for a few reasons. One, the aiming point is far too large for a sniper optic (about 5 MOA, 5" at 100 yards, or 30-40 MOA on a holographic sight). Far too inaccurate for precision shots that snipers make. The aiming reticule simply obscures too much of the target.

That, and the technology simply didn't exist back then.

Yea but Red Dot sights are so much more. They adjust to the weapon making it so where ever that red dot is, is where that weapon is going to hit. As for the K98 the scope is correct so i like it. and besides ive never had to aim higher to hit a target.

By "adjust to the weapon" you mean attached to it? And by "where the weapon is going to hit" you mean like ANY type of sight?

Its not like red dot sights have little computers in them that calculate the ballistic trajectory of the bullet. Theyre just easier to look through because its a floating red dot, instead of a bunch of metal with a gun under it.

I meant why didn't the Germans/they, with the sniper sights that they had at the time, rotate them 180* so that they looked like... sight.jpg so that the target isn't mostly hidden and so that if you're accounting for bullet drop, you can actually see the target.(Ah MS paint <3) [quote=Archimonde0_0;4127960]Yea but Red Dot sights are so much more.

Well you'd have to have an LED at both ends, preferably as far apart as possible, of the scope so that you can aim but as Mcgibs said, it's not magic...

I know they used to make some gunsight crosshairs with spider webs.

Thats pretty cool.
