    A German report in the subject:
    Bericht über Jagdflugzeug-Vergleichsfliegen bei der ital. E-Stelle G u i d o n i a .

    In der Zeit vom 18.2.1943 bis 21.2.1943 wurde in Guidonia ein Vergleichsfliegen deutscher und italienischer Flugzeuge durchgeführt. Von Jagdflugzeugen waren zum Vergleich mit Bf 109 G 4 und Fw 190 A 5 folgende Flugzeuge vorhanden : Macchi 205 V, Macchi 205 N, Reggiane 2005 und Fiat G 55.

    Shows the multiple convergence settings of the 8 .50 cals on a P-47.

    A good reference for setting gun convergence.
