World Exclusive: Kampfgrupe144 one of the most globally recognised names in the 1/144 modelling and collecting community launches the Black Label Series.
The Black Label Series will seek to bring fresh and innovative miniatures to the collector by utilising the latest design and production techniques available to 1/144
The VOMAG Command Targeting car known as the “Messwagen der Befehlsstelle I” was based upon a modified VOMAG 88 Chassis and equipment equipped with the:
Kommando-Gerät 36 (Primary rangefinder and mechanical analogue computer for directing anti-aircraft guns)
Notes on Targeting Computers:
The Kommando-Gerät 36 is a goniographic director, thus differing from directors which operate on plan prediction or angular travel methods.
The computer measures the target course and speed and solves the problem by setting up to scale in ground plan the various distances involved. Ballistic data is obtained from graphical drums; varying heights are accepted, and corrections can be applied for wind, drift, displacement, dead time, and variations in muzzle velocity.
A crew of thirteen men was required to operate it.
The Kommando-Gerät 36 was manufactured by various companies including Zeiss, needless to say to a very high standards of German Engineering.
