Abstract:

The accuracy achieved with the AZON human operator guided bomb in World War II is investigated and compared with German experience on similar missiles. Considerable degradation from the training results occurred in heavy combat and although the results are not conclusive they do suggest that the degradation for this particular system acceleration control with 0.9 seconds lag is serious and increases steadily with the intensity of combat. In particular cases with no opposition there was no degradation.
