    Looking for technical information, manuals, information, etc. about USAAF reconnaissance cameras installed in aircraft during combat over Europe at WW2.
    The attached pictures show a damaged part of an cover of a certain camera. I believe that it was installed in the cockpit of a P38. There are two badges on the part. The information on them is hard ot read. So I wrote it down on a sheet of paper and took a picture. Please see attached.
    The part was found in Lower Austria at the crashplace of a P38 of 49th Sqsn/14th FG.
    Could this be part of the gun camera too?
    Any information please post here or send private message. Thanks for any help.

    Regards from Austria,

    Kurtl

    What I think you have is part of the Gun camera, it seem to small to be part of a recon camera.

    It appears to be the remains of an AN-N6 Gun Camera.
