    Hi Guys,
    Does anybody have detailed information (preferably a drawing) on the turret guns used in the P-61?

    Thanks

    There are some information/pictures in the following books

    Queen of the Midnight Skies by by Ronald C. Harrison
    232-232

    and...

    U.S. Aerial Armament in World War II The Ultimate Look: Vol.1: Guns, Ammunition, and Turrets by William Wolf
    Pg 219-210 (Some good info here and detailed photo of turret)

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
