The turret firing mechanic was stopped by stoppers when it would have shot at the plane itself. but since the single machine gun is offset and it can shoot down, it should have been able to shoot down and behind the plane quite a bit.

 

i sadly couldnt find a single photo to prove this, since every photo i find is in stowing position (0°)

 

Also same source provided here on p. 206ff http://www.avialogs.com/en/army-manuals-and-guides/usa/us-navy/navaer-oo-80s-40-usn-aircrewman-s-gunnery-manual.html

Thank you for your report.

 

Some added details desire:

In game screen shots or video of the limits of gun arc.

 

Both sources you link are actually the same original manual.

It will be helpful if you can find another source.

 

Once you add the screen shots I will post.

 

Thanks

below the lowest.

 

the only thing i can see after hours and hours of viewing material it being depressed on is this mock up of the prototype.:

and clearly the turret had the opening so it would be physically possible.
