The Chinese military map compass and pocket transit is packed with features.  In the movie "We Were Soldiers" starring Mel Gibson, this is the same compass shown in the Vietnamese Command Center.  It is both accurate and rugged, featuring a quality magnetically-damped jeweled compass with a needle-lift mechanism.  When the case is closed, the compass needle is lifted to protect the jeweled bearing during transport.  Six luminous dots on compass needle, bezel, and cardinal points of the compass rose glow in the dark to enhance nighttime viewing.  An azimuth ring can be set to local magnetic declination (the difference between true north and magnetic north in your location).  The compass also features a gravity clinometer for measuring vertical angles, which can be read while you are sighting via the polished stainless steel mirror.  The map scales are 1:50,000 and 1:100,000, and there is a small wheel which drives a jeweled map distance meter.  Each side has eight scales to read distance and speed.  The mileage scales are 1:50,000 and 1:100,00.  The front and back scales measure rate and time.  The scales in the front are 13 kms/hr, 15 kms/hr, 17 kms/hr, 19 kms/hr, 21 kms/hr, 23 kms/hr, and 25 kms/hr.  The rear scales are 10 kms/hr, 14 kms/hr, 16 kms/hr, 18 kms/hr, 20 kms/hr, 22 kms/hr, 24 kms/hr, and 30 kms/hr. Every time unit is five minutes.  The compass body is cast in aluminum and measures 2.5 inches (6.3 cm) square, 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick, and weighs 4.8 ounces (184 grams).  The compass comes complete with a leatherette case with belt loop for transporting the compass.
The aluminum Chinese military map compass and pocket transit is offered at only $86.75.
