Generalfeldmarschall zur Luftschiff Abteilung
- Aug 29, 2008
Much like the Me210 and Me410 barbett turrets, they were manually aimed via hydraulic and pneumatic systems.The B-29 had an analog computer running its guidance. I have to expect the Germans and Italians had no such tech, and instead there was some sort of offset gunsight for which a set range had to be dialed in for where gunner's aim and turret fire converged.
The gunsight for the systems was fairly advanced, but nowhere near as advanced as the B-29's system.
