43 In January 1943, furthermore, came the ﬁrst use of new target indicators (TIs); the attack on Berlin on the 16/17th saw a ground marker triggered by barometric pressure to disintegrate in the air in a cascade of 60 coloured pyrotechnic candles, while that on Du¨sseldorf on the 31st featured sky markers on parachutes. These were released over the target using OBOE or H2S, and though they did drift with the wind they allowed relatively more accurate bombing than hitherto when cloud or mist prevented a clear view of the ground.
In all three there is evidence of the inescapable wearing-down of the German ability to ﬁght in the air. In both quantity and quality the Luftwaffe had long lagged behind its enemies, who from the spring of 1944 enjoyed, at least in daylight hours, mastery of the skies over Germany. For the Allies, too, this brought substantial losses; but with their almost inexhaustible resources and uninterrupted arms production these could readily be made good. It was a possibility denied to the Germans, who were forced to recognize that in some ways they had fallen behind technologically, and who most of all were suffering intractable shortages of both men and materials.
