Weapons: Clip On Sniper Night Sight

Archives

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.

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  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.
