The “Würzburg” radar is a radar development by the Telefunken company in Germany during World War 2. Development began in the late 1930s. The first operational unit was introduced in July 1939. The first devices from serial production were used in 1940. In total, probably more than 3000 to 4000 devices of different model series were produced, which were used as anti-aircraft guided guns.
The last model version “Würzburg D” already used the conical scan for target guidance.
