    I owned one. It's the only real weapon I owned. Embarassed Pretty cheap and it was quite popular in 2008. Decen't but after shooting Glock pistols it didn't feel the same.

    Don't know what people constantly praise the glocks for. I fired Glock 17 i found it was horrible in comperision to USP's and Barettas.

    Those girls look like they are using a very large incidence rangefinder.

    It uses angles with mirrors to estimate range optically.

    Ie you point it at a distant target and turn the adjustment knob until the two images are aligned and match. The number on the knob will tell you the approximate range to the target.

    Small ones are used by one person to determine range... this one looks huge and is probably for artillery or aircraft range finding...

    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.

    While its not related to Armata (at least I don't believe it is..) could anyone identify this early prototype of a MBT with unmanned turret?  Manufacturer? Designation? Year of construction?  I suspect its a Uralvagonzavod product but not sure. I've seen it posted around the web but haven't been able to find particulars...

    It's an un-named prototype used to test an unmanned turret during the early 80's, AFAIK.
