Pictured is a very rare WW II German Ausweichscheibe, which was used to calculate a torpedos run to its target. This was done manually as a backup system in case the u boats automated torpedo tracking system failed to work. The disk was made by Dennert & Pape, known for their nautical instruments.The disk has its original soft case with shoulder strap. This particular instrument as well as some others that I own, were taken from a surrendered u boat at the end of the war.
