    If you only download one armament manual this year, this is the one you want! It's about 350 pages and covers in detail gun mounts, gun chargers, gun sights, gun synchronizers, gun solenoids, gun switches, gun turrets, bomb controls, torpedo directors, release handles, bomb hoists, automatic pilot, bomb racks, bomb releases, bomb shackles, bomb slings, machine guns, cannons, flare guns and a few other things. I was blown away by the amount of information and the illustrations for each and every single item. It's about 330 pages long but the first 100 are part numbers and cross reference information on each of the items. This hasn't been posted on any other warbird site and I was super happy to find it in a library. Enjoy! Keith
