The sight head is mounted on top of a Lucas Harold Stabilizer (L-9404).The stabilizer has a Directional Panel and a Directional Arm lock both of which are used with the C-1 autopilot.On top of the stabilizer is an Automatic Bombing Computer with the HH-1 Tangent Scale Kit.The stabilizer is mounted to a B-7 bombsight mount.Even today people still marvel at the super secret Norden Bombsight.The development and use of this great computer is a fascinating story.The B-7 mount is the typical mount used in all of the mid to late war Army aircraft like the B-17G, B-24, B-25, A-26 and the B-29. The Bomb Sight Head mounts to the stainless steel gear and brass bushing on the upper right end of the stabilizer.
