Herman Lang , The German Engineer who compromised the Norden Bombsight

The Mark 15 Norden bombsight was a ground breaking piece of WWII technology. It was essentially  an Analog Computer. From the beginning  this bomb sight was ALWAYS heavily guarded and shrouded in Secrecy to keep the technology out of the hands of Germany.Carl Norden as a proper Swiss man was enamored by German engineers.In the 1930s he hired numerous, including Herman Lang. In 1938 Herman gave the Nazis a complete set of plans for the Norden bombsight .They had their own Norden bombsight throughout the entire war.

    His name was Herman Lang. Post War the Plans were
    discovered while Luftwaffe Files were being examined.
    There was a notation written in the File , loosely Trans-
    lated : We Have no use for this.
