Rumanian Army - they also had Zeiss 7x50's and 7x50 Gasmask binos as allies of Germany in WW2. I think Hensoldt also supplied some too.thumbsup

PS The case could be Eastern Bloc from after 1945

You'd think if someone was to spend €11,000.00 they'd at least do their homework first. Was there only one person named Rommel fighting for Germany in WW2?

German forces used a very nice Huet 16x50 Dienstglas during WW2 which I can personally recommend. Zeiss naval 8x60's (or the cxn / Busch version) are also highly recommended.thumbsup
