    Least favorite is the waist gunner on the He111

    Favorite is probably the rear gunner of the SBD. Excellent vision and field of fire.

    My least fav is any waist gunner position.

    My old fav used to be the ventral gunner on the He-111, now it's the top turret on the B-25.

    BTW, I thought I had heard someone mention about retracting the B-25 top turret? If so, what control is it?

    Fave: B-25 tail (although yer more likely to get shot), He-111 Dorsal (although the ventral is pretty good, but again dangerous).

    Least fave: B-25 and He-111 Nose.

    The waist positions are useful for those doing slash attacks. The He-111 waist guns seem pretty good, I've often taken off the wing of an attacking fighter from the waist in the Heinkel.

    Rear gunner of the BF110, I've almost killed more enemies that way than with the 2xmk108 and 2x151/20's in the front

    Never heard of that possibility.

    My favourite position is in Late IL2s, SBD and HE111 nose gunner (love 20mm action). In that order .
    Situation will be changed for sure once we got G4M.

    Exactly what he said! They're easier to bag when they're behind you

    favourite/least favourite gunner position?

    Missionary.

    But seriously, I'm looking forward to the Betty rear gunner position. If it really rotates 360 degrees, that would be cool.
