Normal Dedicated to WW2 History
the_ww2_album War Tales IX.
____________
The unwanted job.

It had to be done. It was vital. Defending the bomber from every possible angle was crucial. You're alone in your "office", just you and your guns, and the cold, the fear, and the bandits with their raging bullets. Dread consumes you with every mission, but you bite your lip, compose yourself, and do your duty.
You know your position is highly vulnerable, and could just as quickly become a cold coffin as it is an "office". This is the reality. The life. The duty of the tail gunner.|

  •   markvol12 @the_ww2_album yea they were removed on many B-17's but not offically in the design they still rolled out of the factory with the ball turret but because in the late war there was less treat from german planes, but more from flak , the ball turret was often removed 7h
  •   jojo_duasatudelapan @cessna150_flyer : were there any escape hatch to bail out from the ball turret--- its gonna be very nasty for the gunner inside if the bomber have to belly-land :( 6h
  •   cessna150_flyer No there wasn't :( @jojo_duasatudelapan imagine what the crews felt like when they had to belly land with the ball turret gunner still in the ball turret 6h
  •   yankeeff66 @shop_vac the ball turret was fixed in the B-17. Your thinking of the B-24 which was not originally designed with a ball torrent. Therefore it was raised and lowered for use and landing. 5h
  •   the_ww2_album @cessna150_flyer The tail gunner was usually the first to feel the wrath of an incoming fighter raid from astern. Two guns yes, but facing steady and deadly stern attacks, highly vulnerable. When the B-17G introduced the chin turret to help against head-on attacks, the tail gunner became the single weakest defensive point. Hardly an enviable job. 20min
