AN/PVS-4A Individual Weapon Sight


The AN/PVS-4A is a licence-produced weapon sight for use on rifles, machine guns and rocket launchers. It uses a 25 mm second-generation image intensifier tube and has an internally adjustable, illuminated graticule projector; the graticule being interchangeable for use with different weapons. The sight has automatic gain control allowing it to cope with very large fluctuations in brightness at the target, and a Bright Source Protection (BSP) circuit prevents damage caused by inadvertent exposure to daylight. A special cover permits daytime boresighting and training.
