Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a Do-217E2 and an E4? I see that both models are being worked on.

In a nutshell and in the areas affecting modelling for FB, the E-2 had a fixed forward firing MG151/15 cannon in the front of the lower gondola sighted & fired by the pilot. The E-4 did not have that cannon.

However, on the E-4, the nose flex mount 7.92mm MG15 of the E-2 was replaced by a flex mount MG/FF 20mm cannon, mainly for improved anti-shipping duties.

Other less conspicious differences for the E-4 variant (versus the E-2) were different model BMW801C engines and cable-cutting wing leading edges.

That is about it!
