New Armasight Contractor Thermal Optic Announced
The Armasight Contractor is a feature rich thermal weapon sight that brings cutting edge capability in a lightweight yet durable metal alloy housing. Built as a MIL-STD military-grade thermal scope, the Contractor can be used in all environmental conditions to improve object detection in low contrast daylight, total darkness, or through smoke, haze and even light fog. This long eye-relief sight is comfortable to use and features an array of advanced technologies that will maximize your weapon efficiency. The Contractor offers a 60 Hz 1024 x 768 display resolution, USB and WiFi video streaming, 4 hours of onboard video recording, and low battery consumption from standard CR123A batteries.
The Armasight Contractor also features eight user-selectable reticles, a digital compass, inclinometer, stadiametric reticles for calculating angles and distance, as well as six color palettes to choose from for various levels of contrast and target identification. The new Contractor series will also be compatible with the new Armasight app for Android and iOS and will allow the user to control the unit, record video, take photos, live stream their view, and provide updates and GPS location services to the unit for land navigation purposes. If mobile connectivity isn’t your style, the unit can also be plugged in through a USB connection for updates.
The new Armasight Contractor is available now and shipping from both physical retail locations as well as Armaights online e-commerce dealers for a price of $4,299 for the 3-12x25mm version or $4,799 for the 6-24x50mm version.
