General Description

The M12A7 Series Panoramic Telescopes are typically used for laying the weapon in azimuth for indirect fire. However, should an emergency arise, the panoramic telescope can be put into service for direct fire operation. The M12A7 raises the line of sight and maintains an upright image regardless of whether the line of sight is directed forward, to the side, or to the rear of the observer. The rotating head of the instrument and subsequently the line of sight may be rotated 6,400 mils in the horizontal plane.

The M12A7 Series Panoramic Telescopes are used in conjunction with numerous field artillery pieces and various armored vehicles.
