Shvabe night vision monoculars set off for Africa

The Schwabe holding, part of Rostec, has delivered a large batch of night vision monoculars to one of the African countries, the name of which is not disclosed. This was reported in the press release of Rostec, received by Military Review.


According to reports, the Shvabe holding company supplied the customer with a PN21K night vision monocular. The device is equipped with electron-optical converters of the second and third generation, as well as infrared illumination. The monocular is equipped with various lenses, has mounts for placement on the head. The device has a minimum size for its class, which compares favorably with common analogues. The device is suitable for any observations at night.

Optical devices manufactured by Schwabe enterprises have long established themselves all over the world. The PN21K monocular (...) received many positive expert evaluations. (...) is in great demand abroad and is one of the sales leaders in the segment of night vision devices. In 2020, another major contract for the supply of similar products will be implemented.

- said the Executive Director of Rostec Oleg Yevtushenko.

The PN21K monocular is manufactured by the Novosibirsk Instrument-Making Plant.

          Well, this is a question of trends. Algeria has not been making large batch purchases in Russia for 7 years. More and more often it wags no worse than the same India. At the same time, China is actively increasing its% participation both in the military technical cooperation and in the Algerian economy as a whole. On the MTC - shock UAVs (well, it’s understandable), MLRS SR-5 - here the Tornado flew, the PZL-45 self-propelled guns under several contracts (Msta flew by), S-28 watchdogs (OSK flew by), components for the fleet (again, instead of X- 35 probable, they bought C-802), a large contract for the modernization of shipyards in Mers-Kebir, the Chinese.

      The night lamp still needs lighting. If he is not, then he will not work - for example, in an underground tunnel.
      If you just use it at night, you can turn off the backlight.

    That's always like that: “PN21K monocular is produced by the Novosibirsk Instrument-Making Plant”, but the holding is called “Schwabe” why these braces to the pre-revaluation history are little understood, I could call it less pompous and more constructive if I collected all the plants that were not finished in the 90s in this industry in one basket

      We now have a state policy of praising tsarist Russia. The caring king-priest, the “crunch of French rolls”, the ruined greatness of the empire ... The main propagandists: pseudo-monarchists and neovlasovs from the Ministry of Culture and RVIO. Either they put monuments to all admiral-executioners generals, or they kiss with the RTS officers — heirs of the fascists from the ROVS. Everyone imagines himself a master or, to the extreme, a merchant of the first guild. Schwabe, Brokar, Einem ... And we have slaves and servants. Therefore, they don’t like the Union, the trend towards discredit is everywhere, in the media, in the cinema, in culture, in power. Alas.

    And you know, lovers of this "interesting" thing ...
    F. Schwabe is a company, then a trading house, later a joint stock company of the Russian Empire.
    The company was organized by Theodor (Fyodor Borisovich) Schwabe (Schwabe; 04.12.1813/18.12.1880/2, Zerbst - 121/XNUMX/XNUMX, Berlin), in the form of a small store, selling exclusively glasses, pince-nez and other small optical accessories received from abroad . Later, a workshop was opened for the repair and manufacture of optical and physical devices. In the early years, the shop and workshop were located in the Myasnitsky part, XNUMXnd quarter, in the Shilovsky house (No. XNUMX), then the institution moved to the apartment building of Prince M.N. Golitsyn on the corner of Bolshaya Lubyanka and the Kuznetsk bridge. The company’s workshop was located in the courtyard of the house.

      It was lit up and you went blind in both eyes. The second eye allows you to quickly navigate in space if you disconnect the monocular or have a problem with it.
      Aiming at the sight of how? For example, through the greenhouse. And the mask will have more sizes. And it is needed only for moving.
      Suppose you are sitting on a tower, waiting for an adversary (wild boar) and you look into thermal imaging binoculars. I saw the enemy, put down the binoculars, and everything around was black like a black man in a famous place. He reached for the trunk, and now the infection, hit the trunk on the window frame. The boar ran away because you were blind in the dark.

          Therefore, for scouts and sentinels in general, paired actions are envisaged: one goes looking into the thermal imager and if something is noticed they give the command center to a nearby comrade (with or without NV glasses, but with weapons with NVD).

      Panoramic NVD used in CA in the very beginning of the 80s yet. True, then there was no illumination regime. Now this is not a ride. Stupidly turn your head panoramic, of course, definitely more comfortable. But he found the target, you need to press the machine with the nightlight to the eye, and there the device interferes. That is, for those who should always be ready to throw up the machine gun and shoot accurately, I would take such a "single-lens".

    Has anyone seen the Schwab booth at an exhibition in the arena in the fall of 19 in Moscow?
    In short - a disgrace.
    Optics costs horse money (if we are talking about traitors). They had an interesting novelty, there is such a foot, you translate it, and the multiplicity jumps from 2 to 6 times at once. Pts are cool and comfortable. The price tag is about 90k. Glasses are yellow and cloudy. Specially compared with Belarusian Yukon. The cost is multiple lower - the quality is multiple higher.
    Nightlights.
    Perhaps they are not bad. BUT! Their prices are uncompetitive.
    There were even greenhouses (of course, in French matrices). In their own good.
    But what distinguished the Schwabe stand in the digital part was its isolation from life in terms of prices. A sane person will never buy this for his money.
    The same Pulsar or Dedal produces products in the ORDER better, and that the most interesting is cheaper (in the same segment).
    Optics is a separate conversation. For 80k for sight you can buy Swarovski !!! or zeiss. A shvabe drive can be very STRONG, but with disgusting glass products (even with lippers, the glass is much cleaner).

    When there was a World Cup in Russia, I came across this kind of binoculars “2018 World Cup 2,5 / 5x35 blue” google if interested. The price is more than ten. If you say that he is blind - do not say anything. I have Nikon binoculars in the same size (costs 6,5k), the difference between them is the same as between binoculars and two toilet paper shanks. Unfortunately. And shanks also cost almost twice as much.
    So for me it’s a mystery how they are still alive.
    Only the state defense order is visible.

      I am pushing this, the director of our hunter is constantly looking for new sights, so I also had doubts that in the civilian market you can already find better and cheaper. Even there are widely unknown Chinese brands that with the very good quality and reasonable price make the same binoculars.

        Just very soon in terms of nightlights, they will remain out of work.
        Now Yukon, Pulsar, and the Chinese ATN are producing digital level-2 night vision night vision tubes (yes, with reservations, of course, but the technology is taking leaps and bounds).
        But what can I say for sure - taking a nightlight 1+ pok no longer makes sense. A number killed them. And Schwab indulges in the manufacture of these products.
        The future is warm. This year, worthy peepers came out in China and Belarus up to 100k. Sights are still expensive, but still 3-5 years old, and I’m sure that for a hundred parts it will be possible to take a thermal sight without problems. And here Schwab completely sits in a puddle.

      military-industrial complex focused on state orders, and it is still possible there are troubles with the FSB and customs in terms of export, i.e. maybe they even if they want they won’t sell it to private owners abroad or they will do permissions for a long time, so they don’t worry about the price. it's like a fian took for glass.
