A detail of the most interesting feature of the Piaggio P.108: the twin-barrel remote controlled Breda Z2 turrets installed upper the external engine cowlings, each armed with a pair of 12.7mm (0.50) Breda-SAFAT machine guns (0.50). This feature was adopted only by another strategic bomber of the WW2, the American Boeing B-29.
