Excerpt from the "Friday 2010-09-03 Dev. update and Discussions" .

*if* the bar position was to rear, then the barrel would be pushed aft by the wind.

3. The dg radio antenna, the reddish object just in front of top gunner, is completely wrong shape.

1. I do recall seeing pictures with a gun mounted on that location.

2. Apart from the gun swinging back because of the wind i don't see a problem or an error there. The gunner might still be alive... Actually:

screen 1 - pilot dead, bombardier dying. Top and waist gunners alive.
i suggest that you look at picture no. 3 where the gunner is dead.

3. I'll leave that for someone else to reply.

Starting with the 3rd remark.

3. The dg radio antenna, the reddish object just in front of top gunner, is completely wrong shape.




The Peilrahmen PRE 3 (F 305) is a rotating unidirectional loop antenna installed on the roof of the aircraft.
























Three different models of loop antenna, the PRE3 is shown on the right.





Underneath the sliding glass roof, the Peilrahmen PRE 3 antenna has been rotated and his core is now parallel with the longitudinal axis of the aircraft.









Throught the bomb bay, the orange arrow pointing to the rotating mechanism.

Good post, good info, good result!

Hehe, I wouldn't say it is over yet.

Rodolphe, do you have some images of the He-111 with the nose MG pointing upwards?
