The TailGunner (TG) is automatic. When there is a clear field of fire at an in-range enemy, the TG fires. As an expert gunner, he fires in bursts. The TG cannot damage your own plane, teammates, or ground targets of any kind. You can train your TG, like any crewmember. Once trained to 100%, you can select a general skill, and once you have a general skill to 100%, you can select a more specific skill if/when those are announced. Better trained TG's appear to perform better - or so I think. If your plane has TG upgrades, you can research and buy them. For example, 20mm. Upgrades appear to add no weight, and they do more damage to enemy planes, and even at longer ranges.
You can bank your plane and otherwise provide your TG with a good field of view. For example, if a plane zooms past you and turns right, banking to the right gives the TG a shot.
While TG-equipped planes are not the first choice for "turn fighting," if you do in up in a turn, your TG can often fire across the circle, damaging the enemy plane. Enough damage, and you get the kill.
