Weapons: Clip On Sniper Night Sight


January9, 2007: The U.S. Marine Corps is replacing it's snipers night sight with a clip on unit (MUNS, or Magnum Universal Night Sight). The new night sight eliminates the need to switch sights, and is also superior to the current night sight. The MUNS gives about fifty percent better performance than the current sight. MUNS enables the sniper to identify vehicles out to about three kilometers, and individuals out to 1,300 meters. MUNS weighs 3.2 pounds, runs on two AA batteries (for about 60 hours) and costs about $8,500 each. The marines plan to eventually buy 4,700 of the new sights.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
