Can you get a Gen2+ NVD below 1 300€? Yes you can!


Based on Armasight Sirius there is a new NVD device on the market.

N-14 costs close to 2k€ Is N-14 now obsolete?

The key differences are here:

Lenght147 mm117 mmSirius is 3 cm longer than N-14
Price1 275€1950€Sirius is 675€ cheaper!

Last but not least. N-14 optics are considered premium compared to Sirius.

In our opinion Sirius has a really good price / performance ration when you use it hand-held for scouting. If you want to mount your NVD, you should consider N-14. Sirius has slight fish-eye effect, which causes disorientation while moving and is too heavy to be mounted. 

Compared to Gen1+ the Sirius is a huge leap ahead both in light amplification and picture clarity, but lacks the optics we are used to with Gen2+.
