Default German Luftwaffe bomb sight

Got this this week and this is a first for me never had one before.
Was this for a specific airplane?

Thank you

Giorgio

The most comprehensive description (in German) is here: http://www.deutscheluftwaffe.com/arc...rohr%207d.html

The "D" type was a bombsight for targeting static or a straight moving target from a horizontal flight or shallow dive".

You can read the exact specifications for the different Lotfe types here: http://www.deutscheluftwaffe.com/arc...tenblatter.pdf

regards,
