You got to love any plane with so many guns up front it can cut a small ship in half.
WW2 Pacific theatre seemed to be a haven for "Hey y'all watch this" style rednecks.
I love the story of the first skip bombing test. They released the bomb then after a brief pause felt a heavy THUMP to the aircraft. Upon landing there was a bomb shaped dent under the rear fuselage. They decided they should try a different altitude next go around....LOL
Other gun heavy aircraft of note. The Mosquito with 4-.303 and 4-20mm in the nose. Or the TseTse with the 75mm autocannon. The A-26 with the same stack of .50s in the nose and a top turret which could be locked forward. The Germans gave it a good run with the BF-110 but improper tactics turned it into fighter bait.

I own firearms not to fight against my government, but to ensure I will not have to.
