    Default ZF 3x8' Flak sight WW2 ????

    Picked this up at a auction bought this and some other stuff not a clue except that it is a Flak sight 3x8 2cm The pictures show all the details. All codes and markings no Waa anywhere. Looks like it came out of a AFV of some type optics are great. Ideas on what it is or value would be great. Yup really clueless on this. Thanks GR

    Haven't a clue myself...but an overall picture and maybe some measurements would possibly help those more likely to know.

    I found the gory details on this thing Z.F. 3x8' 2cm Flak ( 20mm anti-tank or other ground targets) Many of these 3x8 s are also marked as Flak which denotes their use as direct fire (ground) attachments to the flak gun for which they were designed for (all flak 3 x8 s were used to sight ground targets, not aircraft) good eyepiece on it and the scope can made for a AFV mount if wrong someone correct me.
