    Russian C-47 with turret

    I'm not possitive, but I think I saw an article about C-47s the russians mounted guns on as well as rocket rails, to support the troops they were landing. Anyone have some picturess of these? Even better, ones in action?

    Look for the Li-2 on Google...

Some of you may get the medals you deserve, many more of you will not. But remember this, all of you are now members of the front-line club, and that is the most exclusive club in the world." - Lt. Col. Matthew Maer CO 1st Battalion, the Princess of Wale's Royal Regiment. Camp Abu Naji, Oct. 2004

    To those in that club.

    Im not sure, but I think C-47 were not equipped with turret.
    But Lisunov Li-2 (in USSR build C-47) used Turret and some of them had guns in the windows of fuselage.
