Default Looking for Tiger I T.Z.F.9b and 9c reticles.

Hi.

I have been looking around for a while and I have not managed to get any real photos of the Tiger I gunnersight reticles. So I am wondering if any of you here have one and want to share it with me.

Reason why I am looking for one is because I am making historical german tank gunsight reticles for a game as a free mod and I have read that the one in Tigerfiebel is wrong for various reason like MG range marking not lining up etc. And I am also curious if the 9c looked any different.

The game I am talking about is War Thunder.

Also I don't mind having photos of reticles for various other german tanks and vehicles.

Regards,
Karl

Does the provider of the reticles get a percentage of the profits or revenue for game sales?

No, it's not going to be an official part of the game nor a paid modification. It's going to be used for nonprofit purposes only.

Ofcourse if no one wants to share them for free I may be willing to contribute little bit out of my own pocket.

If I had the money I would buy the optic myself just to get a good look at the reticle. Even getting my hands on original manuals, documents with the reticle drawn out would be great help.

In order to make it work in the game I would need to replicate it, I can't just copy paste it off a photo. Not to mention the ingame system makes it impossible to replicate these sights accurately in the first place.

For example T.Z.F.9d optic I replicated just recently: https://i.imgur.com/fnGtnFH.jpg
As can be seen Sprgr.43 range goes up to 4000m while on the real one it goes up to 6000m. Same sort of problem with Gr.39. Even the Pzgr.39/43 is not 100% accurate. Spacing between the range markers is significantly different from original.

Regards,
Karl

You could try and inquire at the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung in Koblenz.

They may be able to supply you with a photo of the reticle.

Yes, that is probably what I have to do. They seem to have good collection of various optics.

Please share the photos here in the forums if you get some. Thanks.

Btw you got photos or info about the TZF 5a (Panzer III with 3,7cm gun)?

I expect that I would need to go to the museum and take these pictures myself. That is usually how it is. But if I do get a photo I will share them here as long as I have permission to do so.

Sadly no photos of TZF 5a. According to one of the Panzer Tracts books this gun-sight should have markings for Pzgr - 1500m; Sprgr - 3000m; MG - 1500m. Sadly no other information on the layout.
