Great shot! Tight framing works very well here.

I'm going to take a stab at guessing this is a late-model "F". Basing that on what I've read, this has the chin turret, but the cheek guns are still both in the forward window. The "G" models moved the right cheek gun to the middle window.

Bendix-built "chin turret" directly below the bombardier's accommodation.

The ammunition load was over 11,000 rounds. All of these modifications made the YB-40 well over 10,000 lb (4,500 kg) heavier than a fully loaded B-17F. The YB-40s with their numerous heavy modifications had trouble keeping up with the lighter bombers once they had dropped their bombs, *so the project was abandoned and finally phased out in July 1943.*

The final production blocks of the B-17F from Douglas' plants did, however, adopt the YB-40's "chin turret", giving them a much-improved forward defense capability.
