We Guide To Strike-- Part 2: Marked the Targets
The Pathfinder force was able to penetrate the industrial pollution with aircraft equipped with the blind-bombing device known as Oboe. This technology afforded them the ability to seek out targets regardless of weather conditions and to illuminate desired areas with brilliant target markers which reflected back up from the ground through the haze.
The application of the crew's precise identification of the target locations enabled the following bomber strikes to be incisively accurate.
That's why "We Guide To Strike" is the motto of the No. 8 Pathfinder Force Group.
