Super Scope: Russian Snipers to Become Invisible.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian snipers will soon become invisible to the enemy with the help of an innovative new rangefinder, being developed by a Moscow-based company.

"We are developing rangefinders that will allow more efficient use of infrared and night vision gear. These new rangefinders will be working on a wavelength, which makes the sniper invisible to the enemy," Argus-NV Company's general director Anton Safin told RIA Novosti news agency.

The company earlier said that their latest all-weather night and day scopes had successfully been tested by the Russian military.

The Argus-NV gear is lightweight, small and sturdy with its powerful batteries ensuring fail-proof operation with heavy weapons under adverse weather conditions.

The company specializes in the development of infrared caps placed in front of a rifle's day scope so that the sniper does not have to lose time taking it off.

Argus-NV uses special brackets to install their scopes and caps on various types of weapons, including the VSS and SVD sniper rifles, Kalashnikov assault rifles and Pecheneg machineguns.

A words-free intuitive menu ensures quick selection of necessary operational modes and functions.
