infrared driving lights
« on: November 04, 2019, 07:58:32 PM »
My son just dropped a set of  infrared military driving lights on my bench. They are about 150mm in diameter light tan in colour. Supposedly mounted on surveillance vehicles, ATVs etc.
Does anyone know anything about them and what they actually were fitted to?

Bearman are they a stand alone light or used with night vision gear?

Tom,

They'd be used with night vision gear.

Cheers,

The AWM collection's SRV(SF) is missing its IR driving lights .... so if they are surplus to your requirements?
