Jerry and the PT658 crew would appreciate if anyone can confirm if this is a Torpedo Director or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dick for posting this. Yes our crew on PT658 is curious what you guys think it might be? It does not look like any torpedo director I have ever seen. But that begs the question....what is it? Thanks for your help.

I am looking for any information at all concerning this equipment. What is it called? What make/mark etc is it? Or is it for something else like say Rocket aiming device? Anyone?

They certainly would not needing this type device for roll off MK-XIII torpedoes which is what this boat has. Wish I knew but I have nothing on it in my files except the photo
