I have two images that I can post if no one else posts them first. Too late right now for me to post them.

1. Nose gunner never sat like that. I have never seen a seat mounted there, plus physically there is no space to put the feet like that!
I could not find any photo (among numerous pictures available) of that "Bomber/Navigator/Gunner" crew member sitting on the front of the "Liegeboden" (bench).
Though not totaly impossible, this sitting posture is very unlikely.






















































The most usual lay down position.





































The usual sitting position is on this folding "jump" seat.




































On this poor quality picture, crewmembers take up the "Liegeboden" and the "Klappsitz" (folding seat).

You should take a look at this video:

it shows a H11, but the most is similar to the H2

Yeah it is He-111 H-11, but never the less some interesting things can be seen in the video - for example: nose gunner/bombardier can also act as a copilot by moving over the control yoke from pilots position. I wonder if we will have this option in SoW?

Hello everyone!

Sorry did not follow up earlier.
First the Do-17z,

THEN lightning hit my house and fried my internet. Still down.

Doing this from work (first day back)...

1. I see a healthy debate on the nose gunner
2. Missed the note on the gunner.
3. Did not know of that more cylindrical antenna, but it also looks different from the one modeled.

Finally that one modern picture of a fella in the top turret of 111 (couple of posts above, Rodolphe noted), that me!!

To me it looks just right, not so detailed, but just right.

Yes, the Kuppellafette DG 1114-A serves as a mobile cupola for the MG 15.











On the video of FG28 Kodiak, the Kuppellafette equiped with the MG FF on this He111, can't be rotate.

It's the Bomben-Klappen operating system.

Could be a small 3D glitch with the A2-Stand MG 15 Doppeltrommel.

Compare the A2-Stand MG 15 behavior.

This should help clear up the operation:

He-111 A-Stand (nose gunner) operation (and yes, that is correct number for cupola, and yes, I misspelled cupola):





This video of the H-2 does show the function well, couple of minor details off.
Still, incredibly impressive!
