Rare Entfernungsmesser Em 0,9 m R. blc Rangefinder
This is the rare 0,9 stereoscopic rangefinder made by Carl Zeiss (maker code ‘blc’) specifically for use by heavy tank units (Tiger & King Tiger) and heavy tank destroyers such as Jagdpanther & Jagdtiger etc. Complete with the rarely found very elaborate folding tripod and the weather shields. The optical condition is good and there is most of the original tan yellow dunkelgelb paint remaining. The range of this device was a great distance extending to several kilometres. The device was so advanced that it was directly copied by the Soviets after the war and used by them extensively with for many types of gunnery.
