Viewing Aids - Binoculars, Night vision etc

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by BigGSheff, Jun 23, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been tasked at work with researching what is available with regard to updating our current binos, and the possibility of adding a night vision capability.

    I am looking for binoculars capable of viewing out to about 1Km easily, being lightweight and fairly robust.

    Where as, for night vision, any recommendations of what is out there? Is Thermal imaging a possibility in the civilian market yet? I ask about TI because the sites I work on have a lot of areas of dense undergrowth in which intruders can easily hide away. I would assume this would be massively expensive?

    Any advice or pointers would be gratefully appreciated.

    Cheers

    Are you looking through undergrowth into council flat bathroom window,s or are you on top of divis flats having a quick gander at Gerry,s mates through the net curtains. Ive had A word with the lads from the det, loads of them on here and they suggest this bit of kit.

  5. Helios do 20x80 and 25x100 observation binos. Always used to be a good brand when they were Russian optics.

    Improve your cammo then you wont need binos, as you'll be able to creep closer without been seen!!
