At least Wild calls mittaussuuntakehä as goniometer or aiming circle.

More simple suuntakehä could maybe also be called as graphometer.

Yes the #1 is M/37 Skoda T 7 n mechanical fire control computer serving in 106. Rs.It.Ptri.
Used with Skoda 7.5 cm kanon PL vz. 37. Its main weakness was considered the fire calculator's (Fire Calculator m / Škoda 37 T 7) too low level of settable maximum speed (= 140 m / s).

Possibly an Estonian field telephone made by Tartu Telefonivabrik with a bakelite or wood case. These are currently being sold at the Finnish Defence Forces' SA-Kauppa surplus stores at 50 € per telephone.
