What did this fall off?

#3
The Thomas bin?
 
#5
Looks like it's for use by a Cyclops. Rounded forehead piece, yet eyepiece dead centre?!?
 
#6
It looks like it's straight line, while AFV sights tend to be prismatic.

What does the writing say?
The yellow warning triangle looks like a radiation hazard warning, so I'd guess trilux illumination (once)
The dovetail on the bottom makes it look like a sight for a ground weapon like a towed gun of some description, like a light gun or a WOMBAT, used for the direct fire role.

Is it Russian/WP?

Any chance of seeing the reticule pattern inside the optic, if it has one? It looks perhaps like some sort of military survey or obs kit, rather than a sight

i 'reckon its of Russian origin. i saw a scope in the 'jingly' market at Kandahar the other weekend, that was old and i can onnly describe as reminisent of something you'd look over the top of a 5 in deep trench with!
the scope in the pic you've put up is similar in style/manufacture to the one i saw, albeit a different shape

does it generate the required amount of power on its own to propel the vehicle at the required 88.8 mph then :D ?
 
#14
Well it has a NSN so that precludes it being Russki.

a little bit more info.....i'm just trying to find out some info about it for a bloke who's getting the one pictured from ebay.

Moller-Wedel ferno Z14 a1 1240-12-167-5537 (i'm aware of Moeller-Wedel are makers of optics!)

not sure if it's the right layout of the NSN but all numbers are there. :wink:

I knew there had been cut backs but fookin ell, I'm sure we used to get our time machines issued. Obviously that was way back in the future.
