Nice compass, but.... I'm gonna bite... WHAT exactly makes the PE specific to Witman, as opposed to any other Tiger in s.SSPz.Abt 101?

I figure it's smart marketing to ride the coattails of anything Wittmann. As for the compasses, they look super.

Is there a European distributor for Rochm? I've never seen their stuff anywhere and the website doesn't mention anything either. Thanks for any help, I could really use some of their stuff. Philipp

This Orterkompass is new to me but I would be pleasasntly surprised if one lasted five minutes into an engagement. As to the Wittmann set: I'd agree on the marketing side of things because it should be remembered that 007 was NOT Wittmann's regular tank; it was just the one that he and his crew ended their memorable lives. As such, I haven't a clue as to what would make a PE set purportedly for his tank any different than any other Befehlstiger.

Iíve actually never seen or heard of the orterkompass 38. I donít know if they weíre rare or Iíve just been totally blind to them. They look great, nonetheless though.
