Original U.S. WWII Bomb Release Control Intervalometer Type AN-B3

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Bomb Release Control (Intervalometer) permitted a bombardier to control the number of bombs dropped per release and their impact spacing.  This would be used to set up a carpet bombing run, for example, over a large railroad marshalling yard, vs a more concentrated drop over a specific site such as a ball bearing factory.  The left dial selected the spacing interval between bombs at a given airspeed, while the right dial selected the number of bombs to be released at a time.  The bombardier could also choose to either manually drop the cache or automatically in 'train'.  Used in most US bombers during WW2 such as the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and Consolidated B-24 Liberator. This example is offered in good condition with original data plate. Black paint was painted over the front, but the characters can still be seen beneath the paint indicating that it could be stripped and restored. Measures 9" x 5" x 4".
