Sweet weathering!

 

Go read up on the computer controlled gunnery system used by the B29. Simply put, it was an analogue computer that not just allowed the gunner to remotely control the weapons, but fed in altitude, air and B29 speed etc. to auto-correct the firing trajectory. And all this in 1944!!
