Generally considered the defining B-17 design, all changes made in the B-17F production run were incorporated into the B-17G. It also included a Bendix chin-turret, an innovation derived from the unsuccessful YB-40 escort version, bringing defensive armament to 13 .50 caliber (half-inch or 12.7 mm) machine guns, and a revised tail gun position (referred to as the "Cheyenne" configuration after the modification center where it was introduced) in which the guns were mounted in a remotely-operated turret. Some 8,680 were built.
