WW II German Airforce Rundblickfehrnrohr – Rbl.F. 16 SCOPE – 8.8cm FlaK – RARE


Out of stock


You are bidding on a STUNNING used example of WW2 German Rundblickfehrnrohr FlaK, (Rbl.F. 16) Scope and Box!  Unit marked, this was ONLY used on the famous 88mm FlaK 18! 


The Rbl.F. 16 panoramic telescope is a 4-power, fixed focus type with a field of view of 10 degrees, used of indirect fire.  The line of sight may be raised or lowered by rotation of the angle of site knob. The angle of site scale is graduated from 100 mils to 500 mils (300 mils is normal). The angle of site micrometer is graduated in mils from 0 to 100 mils.

 The Rbl. F. 16 is used with heavy antiaircraft guns for indirect fire against ground targets and for reciprocal laying.  A modified type is designed for use with the predictor.  When mounted in their respective sockets with the azimuth scales set to zero, the line of sight of the panoramic telescope on the predictor is 180° from that of the predictor telescope. The reason for the eyepiece of the gun sight being 90° from the axis of the gun is for convenience as the operator can stand at the right side of the gun and look into the sight at right angles to the axis of the gun. This sight is 9.3 inches in height.  The outer scale can be rotated independently of the azimuth worm. Evidently the fixed azimuth scale and micrometer are used for initial laying of the piece and the second scale and micrometer are then zeroed and used to measure base deflection.  A throw-out lever is provided for rapid setting in azimuth. A locking lever locks the azimuth micrometer in any setting. 


Made of aluminum and steel, this aiming scope was manufactured between 1942 and 1945.  Brought back by a US veteran, it comes with the VERY RARE and 100% ORIGINAL Storage Box!  Box is also unit marked.  It also retains 95% of its original finish with NO major corrosion or damage!  The manufacture code and data information is stamped into the side, indicating:
