    Is it possible to get any clear photo, which showing a B-17 fitted with 40 guns and a B-25 fitted with 12 forward guns plus a gun turret and a still flyable Bf-109 with its slot released ?

    The B-25 is a J model with the so called "strafer"nose

    eight fifties in the nose and two sidepack fifties on each side of the nose

    I'm afraid I'm unclear on your Bf-109 question, HTH

    By the way ,even that YB-40 you showed in picture didn't show 40 guns, not even half of 40.

    Did any B-17 carry 40 guns, except as cargo?

    I've also read about the 40 gun B-17 but have never been able to find a pic of it either. There is a close up pic of one with a 6 gun chin turret but no idea if it had more upgrades. I wonder if somebody just got confused with the YB-40 designation.
