    Hi. New member, first post.
    I know that in the Pacific theater some B-24s were armed with a shallow plexigass dish type turret that the gunner presumably fired standing up instead of the retractable ball turret. You can usually tell which B-24s had them by the cut out windows at the sides of the lower fuselage where the ball turret usually was. Does anyone have any close-up detailed pictures of this type turret (interior and exterior)?

    Thanks in advance.
