Question about Leo-2E and Strv-122s Periscope sight shield

Recommended Posts

It appears that on Leo2E and Strv-122 commander can turn protective shield in front of periscope when periscope is aligned with gun. But when so, in normal override mode commander cannot turn turret, but just move sight up and down. And in KW mode he can turn turret but cannot move sight up or down. Is it supposed to work like this?

Well, lowered shield prevents traverse of the PERI head, so you will not be able to traverse the turret  in KH mode  since GPS LOS is slaved to PERI LOS. But  speaking of KW, there may be a sort of issue, since you cannot control PERI LOS in this mode disregarding of the shield's position- someone more qualified needs  to check and make his judgement

 

EDIT: PERI behavior in KW mode is an entry #7301.

Ok. Current behavior of the PERI in KW mode appears to be correct, and you need to use  EMES image feed to aim in this mode.
