    I am modeling (virtual/technical 3d model) a A6M7 Zero for the San Diego Air Museum and the technial data the museum has states that the A6M7 has "three" 13.2mm Machine Guns along with two 20mm. We know of the 4 on the wings but are unsure of where the third 13.2mm is/would have been mounted on this version (A6M7).
    You guys seem to be the experts and hoping you can help me out.
    Thanks for any help.

    The A6M7 had the same layout as the A6M5c Model 52c as far as weapons layout goes. Below is a picture of the location of the 13.2mm machine gun. The other opening was usually left open but some times faired over. Arrow pointing to the empty fairing. Across from it is the location of the machine gun.
