ZAG (Zielanweisegeräte) on German WW2 Destroyers

Post by Harry64 » Tue Dec 16, 2014 12:29 pm


the German capital ships all had ZAG (Zielanweisegeräte) for the anti-aircraft directors because of their restricted view.

My question:

Had the German Destroyers also such ZAG's on board? Also in some sources I read that the Destroyer's had besides the Zielgeber (Target-Director) on either side of the bridge a Zielsäule for night action (night action target pillar) I don´t have a better tarnslation for this equipment .

Zielsäule = target column

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood and Earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned these defended;
And saved the sum of things for pay.
