I hope I'm not intruding, but you have me fascinated by this little piece of kit! I don't really know much about what's being talked about, but if I could throw in a guess, it looks like a radar guidance system, something I've never heard of the Germans having before...

Something gives me the wild idea that it could be a magneticly guided system though, something well within the the capabilities of WWII science. Could that be it?

Thanks Waleed,

Surprisingly similar the German and Soviet ones.
Here a new one: name the equipment / what's done here:

As tiger75 has not been around for a while, anyone is welcome to post a new question to get the quiz moving again.

OK, since you've started it again I might as well have a go at it.

Could it be an early type of (maybe Japanese) Acoustic Locators...?
A smaller type of this early 1920s US type :lol:

You are on the right tracks, Japanese yes, but not sound locators
