Perhaps someone can help while in the gunner position on the SBD-3 you have a fairly decent field of fire for enemy aircraft behind and at the side. You can move the guns to a position where they are pointing down over the side towards ground level. While the gun moves the gunner position appears to remain the same and you are unable to sight down the gun. It would appear that the gunner would require to stand up to properly aim the weapon. Is this possible. Thanks.

simple answer is no.
I have no idea why you can point your gun down as you cant aim it properly but maybe you could be lucky if you see a zeke dive down on your 7 low.
