The purpose of the report is to evaluate subject sights and to determine the useful scope of employment. Recommendations made are that T-106- E1 employed with low velocity weapons especially 105 mm Howitzer, where provision is made for mounting the large straight sight. A three power sight of the periscopic offset type requiring less eye travel is desirable, however, and should be developed. Sight T-106 be employed as a secondary fire control unit in conjunction with higher power sights for high velocity weapons. The employment of M-71 series sight be restricted to high velocity weapons requiring higher power sight than now available and not necessitating a large field of good definition. When periscope sight M-10 is available, there will be no need of combined employment in tanks for this sight M-71 as it is not suitable as a secondary fire control unit.
