Nope, look again within the ME at the B17 and you'll find Gunner Accuracy as another % variable that you can change.

I can't find it anywhere. Is it below Chaff and Flare? That's the ammo loadout %.
Which tab are you referring to?

Nope, unfortunately not.

If you would like to RTFM and see how it is supposed to be done, the have a look at The Air Combat Tutorial Library
Some good stuff there

I do not see "Gunner accuracy" anywhere in the B-17G's property settings. Please state explicitly where you found that parameter!

Apologies, was very busy yesterday.

Within mission editor, click on a B17.
Now look in the tab PAYLOAD

Below the Chaff and Flares, and just above the Paint Scheme drop down list, there is the GUN as a % option.

That's what I'm referring to.
Enjoy!

Yeah, that’s the ammo load %. You have it in single seat fighters too. It doesn’t affect the accuracy of the gunners they’ll just run out of ammo faster.
