A 6M RuM is a rangefinder with a 6 m. basis, correct?
yes

comment on absolut and relativ
absolut means the sum deviation of all measurements from the sum of all true distances from a series (say if 40 m-
you have a target at exactly 10 km distance and if you accomplish 10 measurements you have to achieve 100,000 m-> measured total distance was 100,040 m

relative means average deviation of each individual measurement from true distance at the series regardless from the sign(+-)

Gents,

A very fascinating discussion. I am very interested in German FC of both WWI & II. Are there any works in English on the subject as well as photos? Any info appreciated.

Thanks!
