Object T29E3 Heavy Tank
Heavy Tank T29 Number 8 was given a T31E1 rangefinder and T93E2 telescope. With these changes it was redesignated as the T29E3 Heavy Tank. The T31E1 rangefinder is a steroscopic sight that helped the commander find the range of a target, freeing up the gunner to track the target. The rangefinder was connected to the gunner's sight via flexible shafting, but would constantly get twisted and backlashed. While the steroscopic sight failed in reliability, it showed the necessity of such a device. It improved spotting capability and range and for sensing bursts. The steroscopic sight also proved they were mandatory for hitting a target from over 1000 yards with the first round.
