Gimme a minute ... this is jogging the old memory banks ... :)

Dang - my first gut reaction was a sight cover. I've seen one of these, a long time ago ... cannot for the life of me remember whether it was a sight or barrel cover ...

For a moment, it was striking me as something we used to cover the sensitive lens for a Nav/Radar system ... but, that's not right ... I had limited AC-130 contact (more on the MC/RC/EC-130s from the 7th SOS ...

DUDE, YOU GOT ME BIG TIME!!! :)

You are very close...

They do not use gun covers... but they have something very close to your other answer...
look at a picture of an AC-130A or AC-130H after 1970...

Sight cover in that it is a cover for the targeting system (sight, like bore sight) ... that was what I meant ...

HerkEng said...

Yep, not for the bore site though (thats a funny lookig item in itself)

This is one of the sensor caps off of the sensor/camera array llltv

AN/ASQ-145 (V) LOW LEVEL LIGHT TELEVISION

If I had a good picture, I could show you exactly what lense it came off of. That lense is no longer used and has since been upgraded.
