    It's a Mickey. It contains a H2X radar. BTO (bombing through overcast).

    There were a couple that were converted to transport use complete with leather padded interiors that also looked similar.

    Sorry, I'm not much confident with those terminology.

    What's a Mickey?

    What's the the Droop Snoot nose?

    At least I already know what is a H2X!

    Thanks
    Max
