WW II German Air Force – RADIO ALTIMETER POWER SUPPLY – He219 Night Fighter


1 in stock


You are bidding on a VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe FuG102 Radio Altimeter Umformer (Transformer / Power Supply), as used in conjunction with He219, Me110, and other Night Fighters!

The AFN101A Radio Altimeter worked in conjunction with the FuGN101/102.  The FuGN101 used a radio probe to indicate actual altitude compared to the ground. Developed by Siemens, it was intended for the twin-engine hunters and destroyers and weighed a very heavy 16 kg (35lbs.).  Working on a frequency of 375 MHz, the precision of this device was within approximately 2 meters. The FuGN101 version was effective between 150 and 1000 meters of altitude and the FuGN101A version between 150 and 750 meters. This device was characterized outside by small vertical antennas under the wings, it was equipped primarily in nightfighter aircraft  This was used in the Do-335, He-219, Me-110, Ju-88, Ju-388, Do-24 and Do217.


Made of steel, aluminum, and bakelite, this FuG102 Umformer is in EXCELLENT used condition!  It retains 90% of its original finish, with NO major damage or corrosion!  Dating later in the war, it appears to be 100% complete, with all valves and tubes (however I have not tested it for function).  A VERY RARE item, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
