How do they work? I don't mean waist gunner's on a B-17, but like tail gunners on B-24's or 17's or Lanc's etc, turrets with more than one gun?

Cheers

In real life electric motors or hydraulic mechanisms.

In FB/AEP/PF they are manned by evil imps and traversed through sorcery.

On behalf of all the Turret and Propeller Imps out there I would kindly ask you to stop labeling us as 'evil'.

We prefer the term 'morally challenged' or 'ethically disadvantaged'. The term 'sadistic, capricious, hell spawn' is also acceptable.

Our legal representatives at Grumman Aerospace have been contacted. . They are 'teh 3vil'. You have been given your final and only warning.

Any and all references to Imps (or even those morally challenged Gremlins from the Kremlin) as 'evil' will result in our services being pulled from the game with catastrophic results: Offline gunners will actually miss targets while online gunner AI will be upgraded to something similar to a blindfolded, trained Rhesus monkey.

Thank you in advance for your reluctant co-operation.

In what sense do you mean work? Traverse, gunsights?

Hope it covers whatever questions you had.
