Hai
I am looking for some materials which gives an impression how the belt fed Darne machine gun was build in the wing of the Dewoitine D-501.
Maybe is there some one who has a cutaway drawing of the wing of the D-501 which shows how this machine gun was fixed?
It had to be one of the D-501 because later versions received the MAC machine gun and this was much differend.
Thanks
Jan

I found that the Dewoitine D-372 and D-373 had also the Darne machine guns in the wings.
So details cutaway drawings of these wings could also be welcome.
Thanks

No, i need it to make a drawing of the wing of the first prototype of the Morane-Saulnier MS.405.
This wing was differend than the later ones and was first armement with the Darne later replaced by a MAC.
