    Gunsight C1 was designed for MG, but can be used for the HE/AP shells also. The scale has only distance on 1000meters. It is enough for MG. Multiply ~2x times the distance. Ie the distance is 200m then shoot at the mark 400meters and so on. Gunsight reticle is unmovable. According to the Soviet pre-WW2 standards the target should get the hit on the third shot. It is no wonder with such gunsights a Soviet tankers had a bad skill of targeting.

    Gunsight C2 is a periscope and was designed for observation and targeting. As u know a universal things works bad in both directions. As observation device it was bad, because gunner can't see more than ~(90-120)degrees on his way. The reason is simple, he can't make a 360degrees round inside, coz the turret was a very narrow.
    As targeting device it was bad, coz it was constantly knocked off from the main mark after observation. Luckily, user may align reticle, if press "O". Moreover T-50 was not equipped with a radio. It had excellent form, armor, gun, but lack of communication as the other Soviet tanks and planes. It was a mini copy of T-34. it looks beauty, but worked bad.
    In the game T-50 equipped with radio. For the hardcore mode, u may disable feature "always obey the orders" and see what happen Very Happy

    A1 is AP shell. B-240 and BR-240 are almost identical types of the shell. I'd say B-240 is a bit stronger, but less reliable. When the shell hit the armour it could be self-destroyed, because of the bad steel hardening of the shell's cap.
    A2 is HE shell and has three positions of delay.
    A3 is Shrapnel against infantry or even armour at the short distance (100-200m). Set fuse "on strike".

    C1=А2      про свідчить мітка на сітці "ОГ" (осколочная граната )/"ОГ" means High Explosive/HE
    С2=А1     + до 800м Кулемет/up to 800meters MG
    С1+С2 =А3    шрапнель   сітки прицілів 0- 200м/Shrapnel 0-200m

    Для танку Т-50 приціл ТОП-1 (С1)= я  налаштовував для 45мм снаряду НЕ УО-243 (А2).
    В реальних прицілах ТОП-1 зазвичай шкала в окулярі налаштовувалась
    1. 7.62мм кулю кулемета ДТ

    2 взагалі не мала прицільних шкал (тільки вертикальна і горизонтальні лінії перехрестя та шкала бокових поправок)

    В прицілах ТОП, ТОП-1, ТОС-1 (ТОД1-9) шкали для снарядів та куль розміщувались ззовні прицілу в спеціальному віконці (на скріні обвів червоним кольором), в полі зору лівого ока навідника(що було не зовсім вдале рішення) на скріні приціл ТОД- (приціл ТОП конструкційно  однакові)
