In stuff I have seen on the upcoming zero dark thirty film, it seems that the us sf teams now wear night optics with 4 lenses. Anyone know why 4 lenses? Is it some kind of splinter cell thermal/night vision combo?
Does it allow depth perception, an issue that affects the more conventional optics?

Feck me...on those dark nights wandering around the German countryside we were just issued an extra ration of carrots and on we went!

I suspect that the weight is a bit understated, I also suspect that the large overhang at the back of the helmet contains a massive counterweight.

Think that's the battery pack

The battery pack is in the Landrover trundling along behind him...

Interesting Blobmeister. They weigh less than a lot of Binocular Gen 4 NVG.
There you go, all the gen necessary for one of your in-depth reviews.

How long till the MoD buys 10 sets as a UOR for the boys at Herford.
Probably a long time. According to KIT magazine the army has violated US terms for selling us NVGs by peeling off the stickers with the registered numbers on so we can't prove where they all are!@.@
