    Greetings all;

    I was looking at F19_Olli72s wallpapers (found in his sig) and saw the beautiful Me-210, which sparked an old curiosity that I had. Just how effective were those defensive guns? By this I mean, were the effective...since they were remotely controlled.

    Additionally, the Me-210 ever going to be flyable...I imagine the remote controlled guns may hinder that.

    Just curious...if it's been covered (either question) already, I apologize.

    If you get a chance, check out F19_Olli72s wallpapers.

    Agreed. I read they were very effective, but also *I think* I read they were hard to model over the FB. I don't know. mmmm

    Its difficult to quantify how good something like the FDL-131 was. It was probably pretty accurate on account of the solid mountings the MG-131's had, and was well supplied with ammunition. It also covered a wide field of fire for a defensive weapon mount, and penalized the Me210/Me410 with little drag due to the small streamlined weapon blisters.

    As to modelling in FB, it does look quite a complex array in the cockpit. Also, you would need to model 2 gunsight positions, as there are two separate reflector sights, one for aiming the left mounted gun and one for the right.

    Ahh.... how I'd love to see a flyable Hornisse!

    "As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Günther Rall

    It was difficult to aim with this weapons, but I also remember that an US P47 ace was shot down while he attacked a 410.
