The B-17 was the first Boeing military aircraft with a flight deck instead of an open cockpit and was armed with bombs and five .30-caliber machine guns mounted in clear "blisters."
The first B-17s saw combat in 1941, when the British Royal Air Force took delivery of several B-17s for high-altitude missions. As World War II intensified, the bombers needed additional armament and armor.
In the Pacific, the planes earned a deadly reputation with the Japanese, who dubbed them "four-engine fighters." The Fortresses were also legendary for their ability to stay in the air after taking brutal poundings. They sometimes limped back to their bases with large chunks of the fuselage shot off.
The B-17E, the first mass-produced model Flying Fortress, carried nine machine guns and a 4,000-pound bomb load. It was several tons heavier than the prototypes and bristled with armament. It was the first Boeing airplane with the distinctive -- and enormous -- tail for improved control and stability during high-altitude bombing.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FABRIC AND VINYL, other than the price? I'm glad you asked!
PRINTED ADHESIVE FABRIC: Printed adhesive fabric can be re-positioned MANY TIMES from wall to wall! Fabric can be reused and re-positioned again and again, even on TEXTURED WALLS. This product is more expensive than vinyl but it is more resistant to damage, it won't tear easily as vinyl. We recommend applying to walls that have been painted (cured) for 6 months or longer to prevent damage to the wall.
PRINTED WALL VINYL: It is a thin material that will look like painted on your wall. Based on our experience, it can be re-positioned but after the 2nd time, it will lose the stickiness, however, the removal seems to be cleaner than the one with fabric adhesive. It is a durable material when it’s applied on the wall, however, if pulled hard it will tear. The printed vinyl is akin to fathead wall decal products.
