World War II era U.S. Air Force Navigation Equipment
This is a World War II era U.S. Air Force compass and Dead Reckoning “computer.” The device is comprised of a chart and the actual “computer” which has a series of rotating disks, all of which function perfectly and properly. The compass is marked as “M2, Nonmaintainable,” and has some marks and patina here and there. The fluid on the inside of the compass has evaporated some time ago, but the compass and all of its components still funciton.
