Dornier 217 J Nachtjäger

Dornier 217 J Nachtjäger:

Currently on offer via seller wasabogoa are these very nice shots of a Dornier 217 J complete with Englandblitz Wappen. (link below)

Given that the FuG 212 Lichtenstein BC antenna array has been dismounted perhaps these machines were deployed by day against USAAF bombers - Dornier night-fighters achieved their last successes during August and October 1943 against 8th AF Flying Fortresses. Note the nose-mounted armament of 4 x MG151/20 cannon and MG17 machine guns
