Yeh, turrets that are actually part of the B-17, not as they are in the current release as a bunch of separate models/gunners all ATTACHTO the main B17 unit.
The gunners will be lagit members of the crew. So many of the previous limitations around spawning as a gunner or moving around or MP lag or even just trying to get into a gun will be bypassed.
I believe they (BI) added the ability for fixed wing aircraft to have turrets whereas before only ground vehicles and choppers could have them.

@[APS]Gnat: is this just for MP, or could an SP player take a gunner role with an AI pilot?
Thank you, that's excellent news. Lurking patiently for the release
PS: re bomb- aimer position, will the bomb aimer (if human, ofc) have the ability to instruct an AI pilot to go left / go right as per RL?
