Re: FiFi a B-29 bomber used in WWII
Someone was laying it on pretty thick. There were no computers that would fit in a plane back in WWII. The transistor (the main electronic component of computers) wasn't invented until 1947. Prior to then, vacuum tubes were used and a computer with the power of a Commodore VIC 20 (the first real computer for the masses) took up the space of a large room.
Well, read up on it:
They used analog computers to control the guns.
