[MV] AN/VVS/2V1 Periscope ??

A friend of mine is trying to find out more about a periscope, Model
AN/VVS/2V1. Markings on it are :

Baird Corp. 413D

It is a periscope with a swivel, adjustable depth, a large (3+inch)
eyepiece and the outside is rectangular. It has a 2.7 Volt battery with a
umbilical cord. It is about 1 1/2 foot long and 6-8" deep(??). It has a
case with a date of 1980 on it with battery wrappers dated in the 90's.

Our 'guess' is that is off a track vehicle, but we do not have any proof,
just a guess.
The questions are then:
What is it?
What was it used on?
What's it worth?
Does anyone want/need it?

Thanks everyone for their help on this one. Please contact me at this
e-mail address and I will more then happy to relay the message.
