Just think! Back in the day, these guys made aircraft.
Will the scopes have one of these etched on it?

Seems the Brits have a rifle & scope that we should buy.

"The system will enhance soldiers ability to accurately hit targets at a range of between three and 600 meters."
Who, pray tell, uses a scope at three meters?

Range between 3 and 600 meters. Hmmm. I don't normally use a scope at 3 meters, but if they have one that can let you engage from 3 to 600 without moving to iron sights and back, that certainly helps the cheek weld and head position for accurate shots. High tech is so cool.
It sounds good, but I can’t imagine the “wind sensor” part working very effectively.
That said, I could sure use one for elk hunting.

Odd. I have a non-battery powered scope that checks range like a 35mm camera lens. You adjust the focus (split ring) and when focus, you read the range.
Not as accurate tot he knatsass of a LASER interferometer, but good enuf for my DOPE cards. Works OK for me all the way out to the 350 yd line at the local range.
I had thought of buying a Mil/MIl scope or even a Mil/MoA - Still have the thought, still saving.
Anyone out there currently using a stadiametric rangefinding scope - other than an ART scope?
This is all hypothetical, of course....

(Things are not always as they appear, ask the dog chasing the car)
DInGO automatically calculates the range with a low power laser rangefinder,
Next up, an inexpensive laser detector that sounds an alarm when the rangefinder illuminates you (the target).
