    Anyone know anything bout Combloc NV devices

    Just got one of those Polish tanker NV head sets. Its never been issued and like the day it left the factory. Guy I got it from says they will run on a small 12v kiddie car battery. This thing is FKNA kewl!

    Anyone have one? Know how to get it working?

    Supposed to be some tutorials on utoobs which I will look for.

    Same guy has Polish PPN-3 rifle scopes, always wanted one so I will probably grab one of those too.

    How long does a 9v battery last on those things? I can't imagine it would be very long.

    I believe those are not passive, and would have required an IR illuminator that would have been mounted on the tank.

    Yep, she works! Tried it with the 9v.

    Not sure how long it would go. The 12v would be the ticket.

    It is gen 1 so unless there it some light to amplify I will need a IR flash light.

    Fortunately there are plenty of cheap IR flashlights on the market.

    I purchased one of those years ago when APEX or some vendor had them for cheap.
    Never did fire it up., just bought it as a novelty.
    I guess I should dig it out and look at it again.

    Tried it out last night, I do indeed need an IR light to use it. Got a couple on order from Amazon.

    Will stop by one of the battery shops in the area later to find a dry cell 12V to hook it up to.

    Update, got the IR flashlights and tried it out. Works well, one tube is brighter than the other but both work. Pretty sure there are two spare tubes in the case.

    I was in Tractor supply and picked up a small sealed 12V battery for $20. The 9V works perfect and with the transformer it continues to work even after you take the battery off. Like another 5 minutes.

    The case has what appear to be headlight covers that would turn regular head lights into IR. Now all I need is a T72 to drive around at night.

    Your eyes get super tired wearing it for an hr or so.

    Not sure if its just the effects of it or something.

    It's pretty cool looking and with a TNVC IR flashlight it is bright.

    I used my streamlight IR light and it worked well also despite it being a tiny IR light LED

    It also has a pronounced fish eye effect. That would make it tuff driving tank close to edge of mine field.

    I have to figure this out on the nszp3 setup..its actually not bad to use but the German fero 80 is the cats meow.
    I wish I could have gotten one much earlier but I have seen some with production dates of 1996 and 1998. So Germany was still making it all the way until the late 90s.
