    Wasn't the Radar a Heliar clone? In which case you really would need three elements..

    I have Kingslake's book, A History of the Photographic Lens. His diagram of the Gundlach Radar is identical to his diagram of the Tessar, except the Radar uses a cemented triplet in the rear group where the Tessar uses a cemented doublet. He uses the Radar as an example of how some lens designers got around existing patents that way.
