the attached photo shows a machine gun, found in the mountains of Tyrol.
Can one confirm, that it is a USAF m-gun,
which position did it have in a plane,
could it be demounted and thrown down if there was need to do,
can it be assigned to a B17 or a B24?
2 crashes 1943 and 2 crashes 1944 could be brouhgt in connection
with this gun. But the 4 crashsites are in all cases ca 20 km off from the
it was found.
Sorry to say, that the gun disappeared again in nature and has to be found
and its number plate (once taken for identfying ) is lost for the moment
Is there a number engraved in the metal of the M-gun?
We´d be glad receiveing many answers to our questions to
discover the history of this weapon.
Thanks for your interest.
Tyrol, Austria, Europa
