Recently i got few Yugoslav made by ZRAK factory 20mm flak optical sight for ground targets .
Named ZNS- 20 M75 is abbreviation of ground targets sight ,20 stands for 20mm ,M75 model 75.
As can be seen its exact copy of Wehrmacht ww2 design for M38 flak and some other like some PAK guns.
Since M38 was used in Yugoslav army after ww2 till seventies i guess ZRAK use to make sights exact copies
i checked all dimensions are exact like on German ww2 model. So its interesting piece for collectors
or reenactors ,here are some pictures of Sight.

Thank you for the picture ; it seems the sight is exactly the same as the original German , only the inscription on the optics is , of course , different ..

With some more research i realized that 20mm in this case with Yugoslav copy of German sight refers to Yugoslav built Hispano HS404
20mm gun,actually in single barrel version M75 they used this sight and more to that its mounting position was rotated 90 degrees to the right
so when correctly positioned looking thru lens it looks like on these pics,i just rotated em not taking new pictures.
So shape of sight and mounting rails was exact copy of German sights as well as 3X magnification.
Some pictures of German sight here is proof its 1:1 copy of German design. Same German sight was used on flak,20,30,37mm and various PAK guns.
