    Early T-72s had them before they got laser rangefinders...

    Just based on angles of triangles... get a long tube and put mirrors at each end... the longer the better as that is the base line of your triangle.

    In the centre have two eye pieces with each eye piece showing the image from one mirror and have them split vertically so the left mirror shows the bottom half of the view and the right mirror shows the top half of the view... turn the knobs to precisely change the angle of the mirrors until you form a complete tank in the top and bottom mirrors and the angles of the mirrors can be used to determine range to the target. A more sophisticated system has the calculated range in the optics based on the angle of the mirrors... the base of the triangle is a known distance so using the angles of the mirrors the distance to the target is a simple calculation.

    Passive, cheap, and accurate enough for most firing purposes with direct fire weapons.
