Ack-Ack Prediction and Spotting

In order to accurately aim anti-aircraft guns at high flying targets, crews had to use increasingly complex sighting and prediction devices.  As German bombers began to operate at over 30,000 feet, it might take a shell up to 30 seconds to reach the correct altitude and so equipment needed to be able to place barrages accurately where the aircraft were going to be - and then to modify accuracy based on proper analysis.

This kit comprises three such devices - a spotting rangefinder; a Sperry Predictor; and a cine theodolite.  See also our 'UB10 18-foot Range and Height Finder', and our ‘ATS Ack-Ack Crew, set 1’, both are listed below.
