An additional function of this compass is to direct artillery fire. For these reasons, it is a highly coveted piece of equipment used by the military. A kind of compass that uses a magnetized dial, a lensatic compass features a special card that helps users read the directions easily. This device is very useful because it has numbers, which are very useful in identifying the directions of target objects. The lensatic compass, the most common military instrument for measuring direction, was first used during World War II, an evolution of the pre-war Compass, Prismatic M-1938. The compass is comprised of three major components: the cover, the base and the lens. The cover serves the purpose of protecting the compass rose dial. It contains sighting wires and dots utilized in nighttime navigation. The base is where all movable parts of the compass reside. A floating dial rotates indicating direction each time the compass maintains a level position. Incandescent figures depict the directions east (E) and west (W). In the center lies the directional arrow. This always points in the direction of north (N). The last component of the lensatic compass is the lens. This is what reads the floating dial. A rear-sight navigational slot works with the front sight wires in the cover to locate objects. In addition, this slot protects the compass when in the closed position. This works by a lock and clamp system. CAM MENGA is the exclusive manufacturer of the official U.S. Military lensatic compass, built to the demanding specification of MIL-PRF-10436N.
