QuoteI'm not sure if it's an Me109 - the fairing above the Aseros in the picture has an apex like a triangle but the 109's cockpit gives far better visibility. Might it not be the rear part of a two seater? It would seem more reasonable for an observer to use one than a pilot.
QuoteUSAAF dive bombers (and gunners) used straight through sights of zero magnification - the last thing you want in an aircraft is to realise the ground is much closer than you thought.
QuoteIt doesn't lead us any nearer an understanding of a 4 - 20x sight on board an aircraft.
QuoteIn Dr Seeger's blue book of military optics (the soft cover) he shows a 4-20x sight - similar to an Aseros but with built in filters, used for training naval gunners.
