FLIR Advanced Combat ThermoSight T50 (Restricted)

MILSPEC Clip-On Thermal Weapon Sight

Call to place order

FLIR’s ThermoSight T50 is a clip-on thermal scope designed for short to medium range engagements.  Utilizing a quick detach lever, the T50 easily attaches and detaches from standard M1913 Picatinny rails in front of day scopes.  This gives the operator the ability to deploy it on multiple weapon platforms without the need to dedicate a thermal scope.  It can also be used as a stand-alone weapon scope with a choice of multiple reticle patterns to cycle through.  In stand-alone mode, the T50 can act as a 1X optic or utilize the 2X or 4X electronic zoom.  This system is manufactured by FLIR’s Government Systems division and is designed for hard use.  The thermal core is fully hardened to MILSPEC and made completely in the U.S.  The T50 provides extreme versatility for the modern Warfighter and Law Enforcement Professional.

The T50 ThermoSight can be used as a hand-held thermal scope or clip-on device for weapon use.  It is fully calibrated to maintain boresight with the host day scope.  So, there is no point of aim/ point of impact shift when it is attached or detached from a weapon.  The T50 is designed primarily for the M4/M16 platform due to its compatibility with short-mid range optics.  It is especially well-suited for the Trijicon ACOG, coming equipped with a special adapter interface sleeve for this optic.  But, it works well with any 4X optic.  We do not recommend going much higher than 4X with the T50 because you will begin to lose resolution.  The highest we could go was between 5-6X with a Nightforce NXS 2.5-10×32 before focus could not be achieved.  But, 4X works likes a charm!

The height of the T50 allows it to easily see over 12 o’clock-mounted laser modules.  The controls are placed on the 9 o’clock side and easily accessible to right-handed shooters.  After a few minutes of working with the T50, the control buttons become easy enough to navigate without looking.  A footprint dock for a backup mini red dot sight is located on top of the unit and is compatible with standard Doctor sight base styles.

The T50 comes equipped with an integral laser that is boresighted to the center of the ThermoSight.  This can be used to point out targets to other members of the team who are using standard image intensifiers instead of thermal.  The laser can be had in either IIIa visible or IIIb infrared.  Operation of the laser is done easily with the unit power knob.  An innovative tethered safety clip must be removed before the knob can turn all the way to the high power setting of the laser (non-eye-safe).

The T50 Advanced Combat ThermoSight offers weapon sight functionality at a reasonable price compared to other systems on the market.  Its multiple weapon use applications and handheld capability make it a truly unique device.  As to be expected from a Government System, the T50 is built like a tank.  We are very impressed with the capabilities of this system and the price point.  For under $10K, you can have a MILSPEC Clip-On Thermal Scope.  The resolution of the system means you want to keep it at about 4X.

This version of the T50 is restricted to government purchase only.  It requires a Unit, Department, or Agency purchase order to buy.

Export of Thermal Imaging Equipment or related accessories (such as manuals) is strictly regulated by the US Department of State in accordance with the guidelines of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).  It is a major crime to ship or carry US manufactured thermal imaging devices outside the borders of the United States, punishable by fines and prison sentences.  Ignorance of these regulations will not hold up in court.  By purchasing thermal imaging equipment from TNVC, you attest that you will not attempt to export or carry this thermal imaging equipment outside the borders of the United States.  Also, it illegal to allow a non-US Citizen to look through US Thermal Imaging Equipment, even on US soil.  Again, this is a crime punishable by fines and prison sentences.
