I thought there was a directional trigger stop thingy, for gun crews, I just shot off the tail in my SBD http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

It has been that way since the original IL2.

I guess such "thingy" was mounted only in the "big birds", B-17s, B-24s on so on...

Late B-25s had these 2 funny steel bumps mounted on top of the fuselage, deflecting the bullets if gunner aimed at the tail in the heat of battle. I don't think these work in "our" Mitchell though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
