Light Up the Night
Light Up the Night
Infra-red equipment allows troops to see further at night, using a spectrum of light not visible with the naked eye. In August 1944 a 60com Infra-Red searchlight was mounted on a SdKfz 251/20 'Uhu' halftrack. The 'Uhu' has one job: to illuminate targets with its Infra-red searchlight. Once morning has broken, it retreats to the read.
