US gets advanced night vision devices for troops
...Will liberals claim these devices are unfair to the enemy? I would not put it past them, but the description suggests US troops will have a significant advantage in night attacks.
... the ENVG III/FWS-I technology provides troops with the following benefits:
- Soldiers will no longer need to switch between night vision goggles and weapon-mounted thermal sights to engage an enemy.
- Wireless technology allows a soldier to “see” what the rifle “sees,” which negates the need to look through a weapons sight.
- Ultra-sharp images remove the need to ‘paint’ targets with lasers.
- The new technology does a better job of seeing “through” obstacles “like dense foliage.”
- ENVG III/FWS-I weigh less than previous iterations of the technology.
A monocular used by troops even allows them to “shoot from around a building corner” or “above their heads with accuracy while safely tucked behind a giant concrete barrier,” Fox News reported.
