    Anyone know what the firing arcs were for the waist guns on a B-24J? Preferably listed as degrees forward and degrees backwards.

    Thank you,

    taken from "aircrewman's gunner manual" (USAF 1944)

    the B 24 waist turrets are the ERCO 250TH-1(starboard side) and 250TH-2 (port side).
    their firing arcs are : 55° forward and 80°backward
    and 55° above horizontal and 95° below horizontal

    I hope it is sufficient for you
