This is where a low output headborne IR light and the Eclipse really shines, but if you have a properly set infinity focus ring it's not necessary to have anything other than IR illum.
    Should be able to tie in a prebuilt breaching charge without focusing.

    I'm trying to play devils advocate and think of reasons it could be necessary to not focus to infinity. They're few and far between and easy enough to just refocus back out if the infinity focus ring is set properly.

    This is very much your domain given the community you come from and I'm silently nodding in agreement with your explanation of NODs+white light TTPs above. I run ANVIS' slightly higher in my FOV so I can peak under them for every reason you mentioned above.

    Also Euro:

    You can also get one of these in size 09A and drill a 6mm hole in the center for a quick focus cap. Lets you continue to use a cheaper sacrificial lens and you can pop it right off if you decide it's not worth the hassle. I'm not sure if they will work over a magnetic compass or not if that's something you use.

    If I had 8 K to drop on NV I'd be looking at thermal.

    I can definitely appreciate the logic you presented. And this is exactly how Bino NODs should be set up to enable the transition to white light.

    Thermals come with their own drawbacks, depending on intended use. Such as window glass. But when they have the opportunities to show their advantages, they are awesome. I would only consider them as an individual in conjunction with 14s or 15s or whatever. Unless I’m just trying to whack some critters.

    Also if there are fires all over the place. The heat throws everything off. Best possible situation is a thermal and on to a PVS14 so that you can remove it if need be.
    In no way do I make any money from anyone related to the firarms industry.

    Exactly. Overlay is what wizards use

    Thermals eat batteries too. At least the MG ones most units are issued. Heard the same about PSQ 20s too, but I haven’t used those yet.

    One of these days we’ll grow to necessitating a NV sub-section.
