    Whats every ones views on a possible replacement for the old NVG monocle, because i refuse to believe there aren't better systems on the market now.

    Is there a replacement already in the pipeline or is there a plan to upgrade to the PVS - 21?
     
  2. I have some pic's of "THEM" wearing those,but they'd be pretty expensive as general issue wouldn't they?
     
  3. PVS 21 is rather a different concept - it's a full binocular set up.

    Surely price shouldn't still be in issue in this day and age and i've no doubt there is probably a whole warehouse of these things sitting there collecting dust somewhere in the British isles!!

    Im sure anyone who has done a 12 hour night move wearing the PVS - 14 would agree that the 21's would be a big step in the right direction.
     
  5. They'll only be general issue when 'They' break them all and you all get them held together with gaffa tape. So pretty much like every other electronics kit procurement.
