Photos were taken at a recruit training centre and were made partly of rubber. I think these were experimental boats, which weren't taken to production because of the severe shortage of rubber those days.

AFAIK the Estonian field telephone cases were made out of wood, and the ones at the photos seem to be of bakelite.
I think the phones at the photos are Swedish orign, Ericsson M37. Finnish designation P-1-7A and VPAR.

I think the inflatable rubber boat is of German origin and the small rowing boat might be of (collapsible?) plywood construction.
Partiovene (long range patrol boat)?

Kuulosuunnin (acoustic sound locator) Strömberg m/43 - Italian acoustic sound locator manufactured under license by Finnish company Oy Strömberg Ab.

As for the the earlier photos, could be variations of "rangefinders with vertical base", check this and the next page of the same thread:

Thank you for your help, Jarkko...M/43 suggests that was first manufactured in 1943, a very late date. At this time these sound detectors were almost obsolete... 8O
The only italian sound locator that I know is the Galileo Mod.1934. Is the Strömberg m/43 a licence-made versión of this model ?

Hi,

As the photo caption mentions, it seems to be ex-French Aufiere mod 35/44 fire control system.

Thank you, Juha

I did not know this model. The only french AA fire director that I knew is PCCA Mle 30 model...with integrated rangefinder

See http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 0&t=150277

Here, another AA fire director of Soviet origin. Do you know his Soviet designation ??

Thank you for your help, Juha..

PUAZO-2 system, therefore, do not it?

According to my information, Strömberg made under licence the hungarian Gamma-Juhasz AA fire director. Do you know his hungarian and/or Finnish designation ??
