O-Nyx night vision for French forces


   I suspect that is rubber cover with small hole is for using night vision inside of dark places of building but during day time (plenty of ambient light).


   These new night vision binoculars will equip the 21st RIMa and the 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (2nd REI) of Nîmes as part of the mission of the units of the 6th Light Brigade armoured early 2020 in the Sahel-Saharan band.


   The objective for 2020 is to supply the French Army with 3 179 ONYX night vision binoculars on the 3,519 ONYX night vision binoculars ordered by the Directorate-General for Armaments (DGA) for the benefit of the armed forces; the rest of the order will be delivered in 2021. Several thousand Additional copies are expected to be delivered by 2025. These night-vision binoculars will eventually equip all three armies.


   The main features of O-NYX night vision binoculars:

- Length: 112 mm / Width: 75 mm / Height: 79 mm
- Weight: 340 g
- Technology: light intensification
- Autonomy: more than 40 hours with battery or 25h with AA batteries 1.5 V.
- Extra flat and close to the face profile, ultra-compact and very lightweight, for increased comfort for prolonged use
- Wide field of view of 51° (compared to the usual 40°) that improves the perception of the environment and the mobility of the soldier
