As seen here, difficult to believe that the Neptunes might have a crew of twelve. Visibility in the cockpit was fairly good with large glazed and bulged lateral surfaces. Inside, things were quite different but crew had before all to closely concentrate on their scopes and other maritime warfare devices and, except the front and rear observers, they had no interest for sea landscapes, tracking a foe submarine being a play of superior nature... Propulsion means are not giving the feeling that half wing spans more than 50 ft. The tiptank surely had a respectable capacity and it's quite a number of fairings housing ECM and buoys detectors and sensors all along the aircraft in all fuselage positions, without to speak about the long MAD housing at rear for magnetic detection of immersed subs.
