LOMO Night Vision - the best Night Vision devices made for Russian military now available for consumers in the USA! purchases several models of NVD's from LOMO PLC, St. Petersburg, Russia -- one of the world's largest, most technically advanced optics companies. LOMO is also probably the world's largest manufacturer of night vision devices.

The largest U.S. manufacturer of NVD's likes to claim U.S. devices are a generation ahead of Russian NVD's.  The major components, materials, and performance traits which distinguish first, second and third generation devices are virtually identical for the two manufacturers. The input-output gain, resolution and sensitivities compare well. Price is very different.
