a question: WHY doesn't modern aircraft have rear defensive systems like the superfortress or the stuka? how awesome wouldn't a modern fighter be with a guy in a plexiglass window at the back with some kinda turret or missile battery? or just have missiles mounted on the wings that point backwards that lock on following craft?

Most fighting is expected to be done BVR, so a turret would be useless. If a missile is incoming then there's avionics to warn the pilot long before he could see it. But I think some of the big Russian and US bombers still have ( or had ) radar targeted cannons.
Also Im pretty sure that the Russians had some rearwards firing AA missiles - not sure if they actually faced backwards, or just did a quick 180 turn after launch, but Ive definitely read about them somewhere.

Gone are the days of huge bomber formations of WW2. A very impressive sight indeed. Imagine a huge formations of B-17's dropping their payload. Now that is sexy.
