In the hopes that some will enjoy them. World War II manuals on a wide variety of topics, mainly gunnery.

 

https://drive.google...d1ZBWHh0bEhfUkk

 

Place the rar files in the same directory and extract part 1, it will handle part two and three automatically.

 

Contents:

 

US Army Aircorp AAF-200-1 gun Harmonization.

 

TM 1-270 - Aerial Gunnery Practice and Record Firing - May 7th, 1942

Aircraft Armament - Bureau of Naval Personnel

USAAC - FM 1-25 - Air Defenses - December 24th, 1942

2nd AF Manual 50-43 - B29 Standard Procedures for Gunners

Don't Kill Your Friends - Aviation Training Manual, Office of Chief of Naval Operations

Flying Bombs - V2's - December 1944, British Information Services

Fundamentals of Air Fighting - December 1943

Fighter Pilot Gunnery - TM 00-25-35 - December 10th, 1943 (understanding mils, lead and radii)

Get that Fighter! - Central/Flexible Gunnery Instructors School - Nov 1, 1943

Gunnery Approaches - Fixed Gunnery and Combat Tactics Series No. 2 - Bureau of Aeronautics - Sep, 1943

How to get Hits with the Illuminated Sight, Mk 8 Naval Gunsight - USN - Nov, 1943

Air Gunnery and Air Fighting - RAF Wing Cmdr E.M. Donaldson D.S.O. A.F.C. RAF

Protection Against Aerial Bombs - Lockheed Corporation

US War Dept FM 30-30 Pictorial Recognition Manual

 

There is also topics in here that go in depth about how to use the US Navy Mk8 Gunsight. (Think F4F-4, F4UA1 and F6F)

 

I have bolded the ones I think are helpful in a simulator environment.

Of all my accomplishments I may have achieved during the war, I am proudest of the fact that I never lost a wingman.                                           — Colonel Erich 'Bubi' Hartmann, GAF

I mean, I had fast motor cars and fast motor bikes, and when I wasn't crashing airplanes, I was crashing motor bikes. It's all part of the game.      — Sir Harry Broadhurst, RAF, 12 victories WWII

Fighting in the air is not sport. It is scientific murder.                                                                                                                                                    — Captain Edward V. 'Eddie' Rickenbacker, USAS
