The following features of the Buran-Catherine-E gunner’s thermal imaging sight make it one of the best tank thermal imaging systems:
  • long viewing distance and high quality of image, which was confirmed during operation of the sight installed in the tank in various seasons and in various climate and terrain conditions;
  • small dimensions, which enable the sight to be installed in newly-manufactured vehicles , as well as in vehicles being upgraded;
  • modular design (thermal camera, micro-monitor, control panel, display screen, head mirror control panel);
  • simplicity and ease of operation;
  • reliability.
