M17 telescope


Recommended Posts


Picked this up this morning and I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what it went to? Obviously it is an elbow sight that mounts to something and has 4 settings: red, clear, amber and neutral. Dated 1942. Any help would be appreciated.

It's used with 90mm and 120mm Anti-Aircraft Directors, M7, M9 and M10 for tracking in elevation and in azimuth. It has nothing to do with direct fire artillery.
