Just saw this 1957 German film about Hans-Joachim Marseille.  Very realistic film.  Franco’s Spain lent original Luftwaffe equipment to the film.  There was a rack mounted FuG III set, and a 5WS used by the Africa ground crew.

Two devices in this frame:  a late war 5W.S. and what is probably a 20W.S.d

They also replaced the FuG III with a FuG 10 on the ground in Africa
