gambadier wrote:"Artillery Gun Director Aiming Circle " I think this is rubbish, unfortunately I can't read the Russian. Why would an aiming circle be periscopic? Totally unnecessary. Furthermore aiming circles fully rotate ('circle' is a bit of a clue), the optics shown do not support this because they to not correct an image as a dial sight does (and this is periscopic and does fully rotate). I suspect this is a 'director' in the naval and coast artillery sense and someone who does not understand the subject has made a very bad translation into English. The graticules also seem possible in such a director.

Not rubbish. The periscope for these richtkries' Rkr Model 31 are simple mirrored attachments that do nothing to impede or affect the basic operation of determining angles to measure. I own and operate several of these Rkr 31s along with the periscopic attachment. Observers often need to make surveys and readings in prone positions or under deep cover. The periscope simply affords an elevated view to reflect the same image downward into the Rkr. The periscope detaches and re-attaches from a sliding joint. The Rkr is not periscopic in and of itself. The periscope is simply an accessory, not the instrument. You may wish to educate yourself more on the subject,

Probably an artillery optical sight on tripod for training.

Correct, the Zimmerschiessgerat. See my explanation from 2012.

Hi all,

An hungarian AA rangefinder. I think it is the same model of my image posted on 08 Apr 2015, 12:46 in service with Finnish Army, associated to 40mm Bofors AA gun.

Any idea about the exact manufacturer and model ??
