Night Vision

The soviets have a long history of night vision equipment produced during the cold war. While they often seem large and unwieldy looking it should be remembered that during the cold war most types of night vision gear from all countries were large and bulky.


Unfortunately we cannot get the most modern Russian night vision optics here in the US due to military export laws but I will show a few examples of modern and former Soviet designs.
