Just curious is the MACH gauge suppose to work on the F86 dash?

When some modders will become interested in rework F-86 cockpit ..... once they'll finish it on individual version F-86,
then B.A.T. will be able to compose the result ?

When you'll provide enough texts and pictures for modders to understand what shape it is and what animation it does about MACH gauge , and also tell him how indeed it is needed for realistic flight in missions ,
probably your efforts will make modders motivated.

Mechanical Mach gauges are not that easy to simulate.
They're also called "indicated Machmeters" since the reading makes certain assumptions.
This is what it looks like:

From the FAA:
Some older mechanical Machmeters not driven from an air data computer use an altitude aneroid inside the instrument that converts pitot-static pressure into Mach number. These systems assume that the temperature at any altitude is standard; therefore, the indicated Mach number is inaccurate whenever the temperature deviates from standard.

See a methodic description here:

See a machmeter while passing the sound barrier at 3 minutes+ here:
