Zielgeber C/38 S Target Indicator

Post by José M. Rico » Sun Nov 15, 2020 12:59 am

Hello,

Does anybody know what was the magnification of the "Zielgeber C/38 S" target indicators which were in the different fire control stations? What about their field of view? I'm attaching a photo to illustrate the device I'm talking about.

On the Zielgeber (central target indicator) and Zielsäulen (aiming posts) are so called Richtungsweiser-Sehrohre mounted. (There were different versions, here e.g. Rw Sehrohr 32). The magnification was from 8 to 24 times. Field of view: 6.25 ° - 2 °. Linear field of view: 109m to 35m at a distance of 1000m. Staff 3 Operateurs plus an Artillery Officer.
