How do I read the range indicator that is placed next to aircraft? It says 5.03, or 1.23, or 0.54. In what units are they? Feet, meters, miles, kilometers? Or does 1.00 mean that it's the optimum gun range?

Kilometers probably. I seriously doubt you were 0.54 feet from another aircraft! – Shaderach Sep 26 '10 at 8:48

The distances are in Kilometres. has an excellent beginners tutorial which also goes into optimum gun range, or convergence number.
