Most of us don't use the F10 map during flight.

For every 1 mile there’s technically 1.6 KM. Just make that number 1.5. 10 miles, 16 KM. 3 miles, 4.5 KM. doesn’t need to be precise.

Further all of your maneuvers are based on speed indicators in the cockpit so you only need to know the actual numbers.

I think you are over complicating this for yourself.

Guys seriously. Are u such arogants? I made a VERY simple question. So stop teaching me to convert and telling me to get used to it.

Answer was : NO, there is no possibility to set gauges and HUD to metric system like you can do it in L39 to imperial units. (that was the longest I could find for my question)

Dont force anyone to USE(not learn) something he does apparently dont want to. I did not ask for this anyway.

With that attitude, you're probably SOL

It's closer to 1:2 when it's nautical miles - 1nm = 1.852km, so for rough quick maths just double it to get the metric. One other handy thing to know is that knots are nautical miles per hour - e.g. if you're going 120kts, it'll take 30 mins to fly 60nm.

Hey don’t call it a Western system. We use metric here in Canada. Actually we are pretty fluent in both. Growing up using a mixture of both.

I did not say that learning western system is hard. And it definatly alter my playing when only guessing what I am actually on. Its not 2 numbers (current airspeed, altitude) its all the numbers. required speed/altitude, defensive system capabilities etc. AWACS boogie spamming. its terrible to always getting distracted by calculating these numbers. It takes precious brain capacity during intense situations. When u hear that boogie is 70 and you know how u act on it immidiatly but then you realize he is hell far away.

I am sorry, i meant western aircraft measurement system. not the measurement system itself. I understand knots and feets too but i am not grown up in it and thats the difference.

Negative, it's 1.60934 according to google.

Also to the OP: we aren't being arrogant. No offense, you're kind of being helpless in all of this and we are trying to help you. The f-18 specifically tells you time to WP, Miles and counts down. What possibly do you need to know other than how to count? I Could maybe see struggling with a WWII bird like the Mustang because it doesn't have all of these elaborate systems... but at the end of the day there are numbers and the bird tells you what number you should be at or will be at.
