You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe FA16 (Fernantrieb 16) Remote Tuning Unit, as used on the FuG16 ZY Radio Transceiver, Ln.27211-2! This was used by most front line fighters and destroyers to communicate with others fighters and bombers and ground stations. Used on many aircraft including the Me109, Fw190, Me262, Do-335, He162, Me-163, and others!
The FuG16 was a VHF transceiver used to communicate with single seat fighter aircraft for R/T and W/T communications and were also used for ground fixes and DF homing on ground stations when used in conjunction with the FuG 10P or FuG 10ZY. Frequency Range was 38.5 to 42.3 MHz. The FuG 16 was also used for Y-Verfarhren (Y-Control) in which aircraft were fitted up as Leitjäger or Fighter Formation Leaders that could be tracked and directed from the ground via special R/T equipment.
Made of aluminum, bakelite and steel, this late model FA16 Remote Unit is a NICE used example! Removed from a late-war Me109, it allowed the pilot to control the unit from the cockpit, as opposed to being directly in front. It appears to have been re-painted black at one point of time, and is missing some small parts and screws. Not sure if it is functional, as I have not tested it electrically. I have shown the location in the last photo. A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- 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.
