Hello,
Have the Dornier Do 217s been fitted with MG 131 in 13 mm?

Re: MG 131 Dornier ?

The MG 131 was standard in the dorsal turret (which was not fitted in the earlier E-series but all the K- and M-series had them).

Re: MG 131 Dornier ?

Late E-Series may have gotten MG 131 during production as the MG 15 had proven useless. Not unlikely to see them retrofitted to older versions.
