Sadly for you Zeon, it does not come in Multicam.

You can also buy Thermal Protection, so you can cry less at night:

Whats the infrared reflection signature like on that thing? Looks like it'll glow when observed through Night Vision.

There is no escape to the madness

I had my heart set on a FLIR TS-24, great resolution, spotting out to ridiculous distance, but at only 8Hz, and no ability to use IR laser or aiming devices, it's kind of money wasted :/
Although I could wrap handwarmers around my mags and have thermal tracers, but that wouldn't work at only 8Hz

IMO if you got your hands on a FLIR M-24, you might like it more, half the price of the AN/PAS-23, only 30Hz refresh rate, but much better resolution, and about half the size too lol

I played around with it at Shot Show, and the square boxy contours, poor eye relief and 30hz lag infested refresh rate killed it for me. The other thing that really bugged me was the inability to change the focal range, everything up close, and far off in the distance was completely blurry and could not be adjusted. Not sure why they did that. My hats off to FLIR for trying to build a Mil/LE device, but they keep falling short of getting those ground forces defense contracts.

I eventually would like to check out Bae's Oasys skeetir.

so now do i buy a ghillie to counter the handfull of thermal users or do i buy a thermal optic to see folks in the dark
or do i just stick with geting a gen1 + night vision rifle scope as was my original plan.
by the way that video made me pee my pants laughing lol

But you can see someone's hand print on a wall. Or, depending on the thickness and material of a wall, and the sensitivity of the thermal, you might be able to see someone leaning against it from the inside lol

well, on some of those pictures you can see the wall studs behind the wall through the drywall. so in a way, yea you could see someone behind a wall if they are leaning on it.

CR0M - That is a fire camera used by fire departments to track active fires. Works fine but not something you can use on a weapon LOL

For forward observation however not too bad. Biggest limitation is range. Fire FLIR is used extensively under 15 M.

Not a bad price for that rig tho...it has some wear and tear...

Why would FLIR Vision come in Multicam?
