The first 60 inch Searchlight was made by General Electric in 1893. The high intensity carbon-arc searchlight was developed in 1918 by the American inventor, Elmer A Sperry (1860–1930). It became the standard equipment of the main military forces of the world, and also was widely used commercially. The value of the searchlight in anti-aircraft defense was discovered when airships and aircraft were first used for night bombing raids over large towns
The searchlights used in WWII were manufactured in the early 1940`s by both the General Electric and Sperry Gyroscope company for the U.S. Military as Anti-Aircraft Searchlight Units. Although there were differences between the two makes, many of the parts were inter-changeable and additional refinements were made each year throughout the war.
During the Second World War, anti-aircraft searchlights were used for:
-Detection and illumination of enemy aircraft.
-Enabling day-fighters to be used in the night sky.
-Forcing enemy bombers into higher altitudes.
-Blinding and confusing the crew of the enemy aircraft.
-Acting as beacons for the landing of damaged aircraft.
Other uses for searchlights included:
-Extensive use of coastal defense.
-Use by patrolling aircraft and ships at sea.
-Illumination of the battlefield for night attacks.
-Fitted to tanks to blind the opposing land forces.
-Signalling other units and allied forces.
-Lamp Type: Carbon Arc
-Candlepower: 800 million
