The C2 Sight

#3
I suspect that you'll find that it's nothing more than an alphanumeric designation.

Like the Larkspur series of radios - A13, A40, A41, B47(?), etc.

Or the protocol droid, C-3PO. ;)

Close, A = Manpack
B = Something or other(low power vehicle mtd possibly, I misremeber)
C = Vehicle mounted.

Can any answer my question what does C2 stand for in (C2 Sight) i.e SF Machine Guns/81mm Mortar?
Simple really. It started life as a Canadian sight before being adopted by the UK - it was made by Ernst Leitz (now Elcan) in Canada. It therefore conforms to the Canadian 'C series' naming convention (UK uses 'L', the US uses 'M').

A vehicle mounted weapons sight? You're 'aving' a giraffe...

OK, I was wrong - but I'll take you down with me. ;)

The letter designation for radios was related to the input power:

....Power input...........Type................................Function
A.....0-10 watts..........Dry battery operated..........Manpack
B.....10-100 watts.......Low Power sec. batteries.....Man portable
C.....100-1000 watts....Medium Power sets.............Vehicle
D.....1kW-10kW..........High Power sets................Transportable/Mobile
E.....Over 10kW..........Very High Power...............Transportable/Fixed

And the number was related to the frequency range

10-39 (MF-HF band)
40-69 (VHF-SHF)
70-99 (SHF-EHF)

:) Yeah, that's accurate, those 100w C42, C45, C11 & C13s(not including the HP models) were just the dogs... :wink:
