The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Are these still in service, or have they been replaced by CWS now?
CWS seems to be on its way out, IWS was 60's or early 70's kit and were considered to big even back then, ive certainly never seen one in the past 11 years ive been serving.
Think MAXIKYTE is mostly issued now, it is like a CWS but has an extra bulbus end (fnah, fnah) and give better depth perception
IWS is no more.
I belive Maxi Kite is the same as the CWS just x6 rather than x4. Still made by Thales using the same tecnology. Maxi Kite mainly used with GPMG as the greater range makes best use of the increased maginfication.
