View attachment 5334 View attachment 5335 The canopy more or less fit the sole former. Like fairing abaft of the turret, the one in front is also hinged on a scored flap. Kind of interesting that the greatest design shortcoming of the Defiant (lack of any fixed foreward armament) created the classic oblique "Shragemusik" installation with the guns traversed foreward. I know the Japanese had oblique guns in some Ki45's. Did the allies ever use that installation?
