Stabilizing Automatic Bomb Sight

Stabilizing Automatic Bomb Sight

The Stabilizing Automatic Bomb Sight (SABS) was an improved precision bomb sight introduced into operational service by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1943 during World War II.

SABS was used operationally for the first time by No. 617 "Dambusters" Squadron on the night of 11/12 November 1943 for their attack on railway viaduct at Anthéor. No hits on the viaduct were recorded during this raid by any of the 10 Avro Lancasters dropping 12,000 lb "cookies".
