Is it an AA rangefinder or a coastal gun rangefinder? The reason I ask there appears to be only one eye piece set in the center. AA rangefinders normally have two (or more), one for the height finder/operator and one for the range finder/operator. Each operator has his own hand wheel that he uses follow the aircraft, as well as the small handwheels to adjust the prisms and lenses. This rangefinder looks like it only has the prism and lenses adjusting gear. I think it is a coastal artillery rangefinder.

Theory ....Dial sights are normally used for setting the traverse from the battery zero to the angle of the target, therefore the same design of sight can be used on many different types of gun.
Practice.... Most dial sights in an emergency can be used in lieu of a direct fire sight by being set to the same zero as the gun and are type specific as they have a gratical like a direct fire sight. Because all models of guns have a different characteristic when firing this gratical has to be for the one type of gun only.

Hi all,

Can somebody identify AA rangefinder?
I think it is a captured Norwegian rangefinder associated to the 7.5cm Kongsberg M32 L45 AA gun

In this link http://hem.fyristorg.com/robertm/norge/ ... apons.html is said that Norwegian Army had Hungarian AA fire directors and rangefinders.

On the other hand, Any ideas about this equipment? :?
