Gyroscopic Gun Sight





One Gun Sight has been fitted to a test rig to allow it to be demonstrated during open days.


The Gyro Gun Sight (GGS) was a crash development in the UK which fitted every British fighter with one for D Day. The Gyro both stabilised the sight and simplified the problem of offset shooting. The Ferranti Factory at Crewe Toll was set up to manufacture these gunsights, decades later this expertise led to products as diverse as navigation systems for the Ariane rocket and devices for plotting oil well drills.
