Could use work[edit]

The article is good, but it should emphasize more that automatic following was the key innovation. There was a new era of control theory starting then, centered at Bell Labs and MIT (Norbert Wieber, Nyquist, Shannon, and others) and there was a hell of a lot of new math behind both the SCR-584 and the M-9 predictor.

There was a triple combination of inventions in this anti-aircraft system: the SCR-584 with automatic following, the M-9 electrical analog computer, and the VT proximity fuze.

Even more impressive shoot-down figures for Antwerp can be found; by then close to 90% kill rate for V-1s. We talk about London so much, and forget that Antwerp got more V-1 and V-2 attacks than anywhere else. DonPMitchell (talk) 19:08, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
