I know about the gun in the tail of the H-6 as I've been stung by it a few times. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif Is there any way to fire that gun? I would like to return that favor. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I believe it was controlled by the Radio Op (I recall the story of a Recce Hungarian He-111 that shot down a Soviet fighter with it.). We don't get to do it in FB/PF, at least I have not been able to.

Using the default Controls setup, if you are flying one online, press the "C" key. If you can't jump into a specific gunner position, it is not modeled in-game to be used by humans.

IIRC, that gunner position is not available on the He-111. I like the ventral gunner spot though. You can make some great shots from that spot, but you are highly-susceptible to a "Pilot Kill" as well. It's been awhile since I hopped around an He-111 online.

Time for a refresher course for me.

Ok, so basicly there is no way to human-control that gun. I've had the AI use it against me before. You think they would've put it as like a secondary fire or something for either the top of bottom gun position. UberDemon, That sounds logical that the radio operator controlled it. I've read, in other applications of a fixed rear gun, it was mainly to scare attacking fighters. Thank you for the help.

No prob.

I posted the account, albeit in a He-111P-4, in this furum... interesting read if you have the time:
