The MK-4M periscope was mounted on almost all the iconic Soviet tanks of WW2 like T-70, T-34, IS-2, ISU-152 and others. Later it was implemented in many other armoured vehicles of the Soviet and Warsaw Pact Armies.
What is an MK-4 periscope?
The MK-4 periscope is a Wolrd War 2 copy of the Vickers MK-4 periscope.
The original periscope of was invented by Polish engineer Rudolf Gundlach, who has designed for Polish 7TP light tank. Just before the war, its blueprints were supplied to the British. And the Soviets admitted openly, that they have copied it from tanks supplied by their western allies. Ironically, this design made a full circle came back to Poland with the Soviet supplied tanks. The MK-4 periscope was the first one, which allowed the crewman of the T-34 tank to look behind them, without having to turn around their body inside the turret.
Great opportunity for collectors, who want to own a piece of a Russian tank on a bargain. Besides tanks, one can find them on Warsaw Pact vehicles like BTR-50, OT-62 Topas and others.
