    I've seen more examples of this type of artillery compass but they were always in the standard Soviet army colour.
    Perhaps this example was intended for use in the Soviet Navy or Air force.
    Unfortunately I can not find much about the operation of this optical device or WWII dated pictures of Soviet soldiers using this artillery compass.
    All I could find was this Russian website; Артиллерия .
    I only know that it was used by field artillery and engineers. Who knows more about this artillery compass or has pictures of Soviet soldiers
    who are using this optical device?
