View Full Version : Lofte or Lotfe?

I've seen this both ways with almost equal frequency. The IL-2 manual spells it "Lotfe", as does the training track. Various forum posts and level bombing manuals spell it "Lofte". If you get in the He-111, sit in the bombardier's chair, and look down at it, it has a placard bearing "Lofte" on it. Google gets lots of hits either way.

It's driving me nuts! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Which is correct?

BTW: I'm talking about the German bombsight in the He-111 and the Ju-88, in case you don't know.

Lotfe = Lotfernrohr ...

Lot - fernrohr = "drop telescope"

Thanks, guys! Sanity restored!

Hmmm, of course, this means that the texture mapping in the He-111 and Ju-88 is in error. I'm sure that will be fixed in 4.09 though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
