Can someone post the scope of the cannon of the M60 tank?

Ok, I've been looking into it and I'm about 75-85% sure that it is the same basic sight picture as the Abrams, or at least earlier models of it. At some point, they will start up the M60A1 and I'll see if the scope still works. There should be a secondary scope as well, but I haven't checked. That one should work without power.

No luck getting the photo, doesn't look like it will happen any time soon and my camera can't focus on the lines in the secondary gunsight.
Here are the gunner's position of the StuG III, FV-214 Conqueror, and T-72M to make up for my failure.

Conqueror

Hi Kading, if it wouldn't be too much of a hassle, could you please do a walk-around of the Panzer IV G's interior, I think I saw you have one in the museum on the website. Particularly the driver's and radio operator's positions , but if you have the time a shot of the turret interior would be awesome!  ;D

I think it's a J, actually. Also it is un-restored so it may be underwhelming. I'll get a few photos of it, though.

Damn, that's nice! They should really get it restored, I think it has much potential :D

Thank you very much Kading!  ;D

Is that gun sight still in condition to sight through?  I'd love to get a pic of the actual sights :o

It will be restored after they send it to Stow, Mass. So I won't be getting photos of that, sadly.

Muddy, I'll double check this Saturday if the optics are still in place.

So this thread hasn't been posted in in a while and I searched but didn't find anything. Found this website that let's you look around the cockpit of a Spitfire and if you mouse over the instruments it tells you what they are 8)

reddit is currently hugging it to death so you might wanna wait a bit.
