Goggle lens preference for sniping
Posted 09 July 2008 - 12:48 PM
My instinct tells me that a clear thermal lens will be the best, given that you will be in a wooded area with tree coverage filtering out a lot of the light. A clear lens will allow for the maximum view of the field without dimming any lighting or distorting any colors you might see. I'm pretty sure this is the way to go.
I MIGHT see this as an option, seeing that black MIGHT blend in more easily than someone seeing the glare off of a clear lens. The downside to this, is that in a lower lit wooded area, it takes away from your visibility of the field.
I really see no reason for a sniper to use this, unless his name is Master Chief and he's hunting down Covenant fools. I just thought I'd throw this one on there to see if anyone picked it.
Let me know what you think! Thanks!

EDIT: Remember this is my opinion, and I don't know if most military snipers use sunglasses or only their eyes. I'm sure plenty do in Iraq, but what about other military zones, such as ones not being as sunny or sharing the climate of the Middle East.
