The Norden bomb-sight was a tachymetric bomb-sight used by the U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF) and the U.S. Navy during World War II, and the U.S. Air Force in the Korean and Vietnam Wars to help a group of airships to drop bombs precisely. Two highlights were key to the Norden’s activity; a simple PC that always determined the direction of the bomb, depending on current flight conditions, and a link to the aircraft’s autopilot that allowed it to respond quickly and precisely to changes in the breeze or different impacts.
