Bf 109 G-10 U4 belly ejection shell slot
from: Edgardo Gil
I wonder if the G-10 U4 had the same belly ejector shell slots like the
K-4 as they use the same 30 mm gun.
What do you think?

Look at this article.

I don't believe that the 109 G-10/U4 had the slot. I've seen no photographic evidence of it and the restored example in the Planes of Fame Museum does not have one.
