One of the most talked about new developments in the world of Night Vision as of late has been the ARNVG (Articulating Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle) housing from AB Night Vision. Licentia Arms produced a great introduction video to this new offering.
Users are so excited about this housing because it pretty much offers the best of all worlds in the realm of night optics.
- Articulating pods.
- Auto pod shutoff.
- PVS14 optics.
- 7075 aluminum construction.
- Internal battery and external battery support.
- Onboard IR illuminator.
- Variable gain control.
All this at a weight that is amazingly low. The original RNVG housing from AB climbed to top or near-top of everyone’s wish list because of it’s extreme durability (aluminum construction). But what it always lacked was articulating pods and variable gain control (depending on who you ask). Those issues have both been addressed and added to the ARNVG.
