Hello i dont necessarily have a problem with my itt 190. I am actually researchujng the nvg before i decide to purchase it. I know its a gen 3 but know little else. Iam under the impression it is a multitask monocualr. Can it be worn over the eye by adapting to a headharness and mounting arm as well as the weapons mount used by all itt monoculors such as the gear for the ITT PVS 14. If so can it be weapons mounted. Is its size similar to the 14 units/ I hear its built well and has since been discontinued nby ITT. Can i come hear for support and nmaaintenence if part are needed. Finally how are the optics on this gen 3 unit. Are they as good as the modern pvs 14 and what lp is it 54-64lp. I just want to know versatile this unit is and its optics and how well its gen 3 unit works. Now i know its most likely far better than my rather old itt pvs 14 gen 2. Any info and advice is much appreciated Thnks SPC. Joshua L. Steward U.S,Army/Airborne Dis/Ret
Electronic components; resistor, capacitor, transistor, processor, switches,
wire, all component have to meet or exceed those standards set by the Military.
When these component come together to make ccfl, inverter, voltage multiplier,
controller that they have to meet standards set by the US Military RD. Those
standard are stiff. Wonder why they didn't throw the M16 or M4 in a junk pile.
The image are made by ITT liton, Vard In, Photo-tonic, etc. These companies
apply for military contracts in which there manufactured item will have to meet
Military standards. This companies are American. Maybe with the exception
Photo-tonic it has linage to Europe--Belgium.
Vard Inc made the 1st generation PVS2 Star Light Scope in 1962 which was
first used in Vietnam successfully. There were other NV devise big and bulky.
Back in the 50's the Army had rifle mount scope, it took three soldier to
operate it. You couldn't sneak up on blind rat with it....
I used PVS2 in Vietnam and it save my *** a few times. As you know being in
the military everything you carry has to be light.
When I was in Vietnam and southeast Asia for 34 months. One learned in a
hurry to drop stuff that you really don't need, gas masked, sleeping mat,
ratios, etc.etc... In Vietnam i carry 18 clips/50 round bagged of ammo for M2
carbine, three hand grenades, one ***** trap grenade. two ***** trap AK47
clips. I used indigenous pack, poncho line, indigenous poncho, five plastic bag
of rice with beef and chicken bullion (from home). Tabasco sauce. four canteen
of water, and one 3/4gal bag of water. Sometime I worn Vietnamese cloths, loose
fitting black silky pants and linen shirt, Cooley hat, Uncle HO sandals. and
sleep in the air, mud, on the ground, up against a tree or in a water fill bomb
I carry what I needed, not what the Army want me carry. I got in a lot of
trouble but I prevailed in those adversaries. I hope I answer all your
questions. stewbison Read More At : Night Mariner 190...
