    Hi

    I posted this periscope on the equipment forum and the suggestion was that it may be vehicle which seems fair.

    The cork screw style support is actually for scissor scopes but fits this periscope very nicely.

    The question is which vehicle ? can anyone please help ID it ?

    cheers

    Maybe with the square clamping device it was a 'universal' item and not specific to one type of vehicle??

    Hi

    Dan I like your logic, could well be the answer ! I wishfully think this was the universal periscope fitted in a spanking new King Tiger !

    sorry to burst your bubble but all the vehicle sights i've seen have a rubber eye peice or face pad (due to the movement of the vehicle) so i would guess these sights were used for a static purpose but i can't id them so this is just my opinion.

    good look with your search
