Used with Nikon F still picture KS-80A kit for specific aerial photographic missions (day reconnaissance and general photographic missions) by ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare), VA (Attack) and VF (Fighter) type aircraft: as an aircraft-to-aircraft «scramble» camera for the fighter pilot or as an air-to-ground camera for the patrol and ASW squadrons, engaged in ASW and ship surveillance photography. The entire photography operation is executed single handedly, leaving the other hand free for the aircraft's controls.
