Other manufactures / Iraqi Army Republican Guard 8x30 Binoculars
« Last post by Niall McLaren on August 19, 2019, 02:03:07 PM »
Missing the guards insignia plate on the right side but stunning optics and Iraqi reticle. Came with the British soldier's army torch - it even has batteries in!

The Republican Guard, the elite troops of the Iraqi army directly reporting to Saddam Hussein, consisted of three armoured, one mechanised and two infantry divisions, with between 65,000 and 70,000 soldiers. Almost all of Iraq's top-of-the-line Soviet made and also Iraqi-assembled T-72 main battle tanks, some 600-700 of them, were in the guard divisions.

My thought exactly Rodolfo - a French Navy Huet 8x30 from the 20's or 30's. ;)

I've no idea about it but the whole reticle (including the 1950 2000) rotates.  It must attach to the left side of the weapon - maybe an anti tank device? ;)

Hi Rodolfo - it's British Army designation for "Monocular, Prismatic" although it does sound like the French brand.  Binoculars were "Bino Prism" using the same system and a telescopic sight "Tel, Stg" for sighting telescope. ;)

Really unusual Niall,

ANBt = ANVt ? ? ? achronim ?

The reticle rotate but 1950 2000 always remains horizontal ?

Dear Niall,

Mono Pris: strange brand. I know Mono Prix Paris that was founded in 1936 and sold anything. Perhaps a case of homonymy, and the plate was engraved in England wrongly named ?

Have you other infos about ?
