Purpose - ensuring 24-hour passive detection of targets by vehicle crew and firing using standard weapons at maximum distances in poor visibility conditions. The works include replacement of TPKU-2B obsolete day vision device, TKN-1S night observation device, TVN-2 night vision device and PP-61A (AM) day sight as well as equipping driver’s cabin with modern optronic system intended for armored vehicle driver.
1.“TKN–N” commander’s day/night observation device
TKN–N is installed in the commander’s turret groove on standard site of TKN–1S device without any design modifications. TKN–N is a passive device with the following observation channels:
• Day optical channel with 4х magnification;
• Day optical channel with 8х magnification;
• IIT-based night channel with 4х magnification;
• Thermal imaging channel with 4х magnification.
2. “РР–61МК” day/night sight
The sight PP–61МК is designed to replace PP–61A (AM) day sight used in APC turret machine gun mount. PP–61MK sight is used for 24-hour passive detection of targets, aimed firing using machine guns at distances up to 2000 m (day time) or up to 600 m (night time, without IR-illuminator). The sight is installed onto the standard site of PP–61A (AM) day sight and does not require any modifications of the turret.
3. “PUMA DRIVER–SOFIA” driver’s optronic system
It is designed for carrying out day time, twilight time and night time terrain (road) observation when driving in combat mode.
