Iv'e assumed that the turret is revolving to accomodate the various positions the gun is aimed,tho it is stationary in ext view. While on subject of gunners, has anyone noticed you cannot shootup your tail & wings on the BETTY like can on the orig. bombers, I have to believe the the guns on WW2 bombers had autocutout just like cowel mounted guns on fighters.

That's how the Betty unpowered rear turret worked in real life. The AI FW189 has a similar arrangement.

Only powered turrets had cutouts to prevent damaging their own aircraft. Something missing in this game.
