I recently specialized my Lagg-3(4), and upgraded it with an improved gunsight.  Under the "outboard weapon", it gave me the option to add the rocket sight.  However, I can't seem to find a switch between the two during a game.  I tried using the bombsight switch (shift) but that didn't do anything.  What am I missing?  Apologies if it's something obvious and I just have missed it.  Thanks in advance for your help!

It's not a separate sight in the game, at least as far as I know.   Just improves the effect of the outboard weapons.

Corsair is correct, you should be able to see the characteristics of the sight by clicking on it in the equipment page

China is genociding the desert. More information

Be warned The rocket sight really is ineffective ( my opinion and experience )  for your average player that does not use rockets all the time,

I finally dismounted all mine and switched to aerodynamic pylons where applicable,

The key to that sentence is "for your average player that does not use rockets all the time".  If you are content with mediocrity and being average that is fine but if you want rocket kills the 8% accuracy bonus of the rocket sight helps a lot.  The lagg-3(4) is the best plane there is for low tier rocket kills. If you get a rocket mission like we just had for the Japanese girl it is nice having planes in your hangar that can get the job done at any tier.

Better yet, just play the Me.410 (tier 6) with WGr rockets (fire in head-to-head engagements at 1500m for area of effect kills), the Blohm und Voss multiroles with R4M rockets (tier 8 to 10), and the F-94 (tier 9) with the A2A rockets. Don't bother with the rocket site for any of those planes as it's completely irrelevant.

As far as I'm aware it only makes the rockets have a higher chance of actually hitting. Somebody else may have more information than I do, but I was told it was a waste when it came out and I've literally never used it because of that.

For me, 8% of zero is zero.  :amazed:
