    Re: Gyro sextant

    Correction:  Whoops!  I said last night that the Luftwaffe also used, and the Russians carried on producing Plath gyro sextants. 

    I think gyro sextants worked after a fashion, because as I understand it, both the Luftwaffe and the Kriegsmarine used them, and post WW2, Russian copies were made.


    I must have OD’d on aircraft sextants.  The Plath sextants the Luftwaffe also used and the Russians carried on producing were the standard bubble variety. Sorry. DaveP
