Hiroshima/Nagasaki vs conventional B-17 bombing by zxcv
Since the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were about 10 kilotons and a B-17 had a normal bomb load of about 3 tons and I have heard of a formation of 1300 B-17's on a bomb run that would equal around 4 kilotons (3 x 1300 = 3900) would the devastation be the same as a small A-bomb? or is there...

WWII Fighter Bombers by zxcv
Would a fighter plane (say a P-51 or P-40 for example) that was on mission to drop some tactgical bombs and encountered some any fighters generally drop its bombs before engaging the enemy? or just try to run away? or fight with them still hanging on (sounds pretty dangerous to me with the...

P-51's in movie "Empire of the Sun" by zxcv
I was watching "Empire of the Sun" the other night and near the end some P-51's attack the Japanese base. What struck me was that the P-51's were flying in just a few feet above the ground and dropping their bombs. Would this really have been done? How did the planes keep from blowing...

B-17 forward guin positions by zxcv
It looks to me like the B-17 had more forward guns than people to fire them. According to my count there were two men in the forward compartment (bombadier and navigator). Looking at pictures of the B-17F Memphis Belle I see four guns, each in a separate loophole in the nose of the plane. Looking...

WWII 20mm cannon in planes by zxcv
It seems to me that the Germans and Japanese had a lot more cannon in their planes than the Americans who seemed to rely almost totally on .50 machine guns. Why was that? What was the rate of fire or the 20mm cannons and what type of projectiles did they fire?
