    A number of B-24 Liberators of RAF Coastal Command used for ASW were fitted with a chin-pack containing 4x 20mm cannon

    I'd like to see that, Redcoat. Do you (or anyone else) have a picture of it.

    Devilish sounding.

    I liked the pusher model canard better than the tractor one shown....

    Somehow, by reading this thread the picture of "Puff the Magic Dragon" plane in Vietnam popped up in my head.
    I had a nice laugh on the heavily modified B-17 pic, though. Great pic!

    Yup. One of my favorites. Three 7.62 mm General Electric miniguns. Of course alot smaller and lighter then the 20mm or 30mm versions.
