You are bidding on a VERY RARE example of WW2 German Turmzeilfernrohr 16, (T Z.F. 16) Scope / Gunsight, as ONLY used in the German T-34/85! This was used in conjunction with the 85mm ZiS-S-53 Main Cannon!
Made of aluminum and steel, this aiming scope was manufactured between 1944 and 1955. It retains 90% of its original paint and finish with almost NO corrosion! VERY large and heavy, it has a total length of approx. 100cm (40″). The VERY interesting feature is that even though it is Soviet…all information is in German (apart from the optics). This most likely indicates that it was used post-war by the East German Army. The data information is stamped into the side, indicating:
It was hard to take an image of the optics, but they are VERY clear, with minimal spotting! Eveything is mechincally functional, but there are some marks, wear, and chips due to the age. Missing some small parts like the eye cup and headpad…but otherwise complete. I have indicated it’s location in the last images. As these are normally missing, it would be PERFECT to complete your T-34/85 interior! A VERY NICE scope that would make an EXCELLENT addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- 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.
