Re: Bombardier Procedures

But the SABS didn't reach operational Squadrons (and then in only very limited use) until late '43. I think it was 617 that used them first.

The CSBS style Mk.VII and IX were the common bombsights up to early '42, when I think they started being replaced by the Mk. XIV. But even that required the bombardier to issue instructions to the pilot on approach.

That chanting of directions by a bombardier a common theme that runs through all Bomber Command bio's.

I didn't know that the German Lofte was so sophisticated. Was that sight in use during the Battle Of Britain?
