"Distance to Target" somewhere on HUD

I would like a “distance to target” somewhere on the HUD in a fixed position, preferably close to the HUD where the information on Speed/Energy/Shields/Hull is located, or even below that (in the middle between where the missile/target warnings will be).

 

Yes, you can look at the distance the person is away from you if they are on your screen (in front of you), but what if they are behind you? The arrow that points in the direction of your target does not scale itself in terms of distance, meaning that if the target is closer, the arrow is shorter and vice versa. This feature can be seen in the game Ace of Combat: Skies of Liberation.

 

Yes, you can simply turn your ship to see your target (who happens to be 50m away from you), but only for a brief moment until they zoom off your screen.
