I've read a little of it and, on ebay a few years back, I seem to remember a part being sold in relic conditionn (it had been dug up). ;)

Yes, Rodolfo, I know it as well as having a great deal of research material on other Naval and Land use German IR devices.  What is our question?  Or what would you like me to provide?   :)

Thanks Micha,

have you some documentation concerning the Vampir that should be that of the image ?
Do you have vintage images?
Qando and from whom was it used?

Thanks again and all the best.
