Turret behaviour:
Using the "MISC_1" key you can toggle the turret operation modes.

Default is "normal" mode, which means the turret will be either AI or player controlled in the normal way.
The fairings will lower automatically when the player enters the turret or when AI detects enemy planes with 5km distance.
Once the fairings are lowered, the turret can move and shoot.

Next mode is "disabled" - in this mode the turret will be locked in the aft position and the fairings will raise.

Next mode is "locked forward" - in this mode the turret will be locked in forward position, with the guns facing upward
by 19°, and the fairings will raise. In this mode the pilot can shoot the turret guns using trigger 1.
Note that the pilot has no aiming device, but due to the upward tilted guns he can simply use "line of sight" aiming mode as
with german slanted weapons.

Last mode is "head tracking" - in this mode the fairings will be lowered and the turret will point to where the pilots looks at.
Again, the pilot can shoot the turret guns using trigger 1 in this mode.

You can man the turret at any time, but unless the turret is in "normal" mode, you cannot operate it but only watch the action

Swordfish cockpit fixes, loadout expansions and new FMs (me, Knoche, Vasya)
Fixes for cockpits taken over from TGA pack, where they apply.
Lancaster and Lincoln LOD distance expansion.
Piper Cub new distinctive FM

Ju-52 series new cockpits on all slots

_____________________________

Countless small fixes on many planes have gone into this package. Many are my own, many are from other modders, some are a combination of both. It is just impossible to keep track of all of it over time and I am not making this an exercise in bookkeeping.
A Big Thanks to all the modders and fixers out there, whose work is the basis for even more fixes and twists! Special thanks to Mike, Birdman and Shardana for fixes, testing and support.
