Characteristics/Description: The AN/PEQ-6A ILLM provides the user with either visible or infrared illumination of the target for target acquisition, and either visible or infrared target aiming point for fire control. Both laser beams can be zeroed to the weapon and each other. The laser beams can also be operated in combination with the visible and IR illumination beams.
Weapon Platforms: The AN/PEQ-6A is intended for use on the M9 and CQBW but is capable of attaching to any weapon that utilizes a MIL-STD-1913 rail.
REPLACED by AN/PEQ-14.
Characteristics/Description: The AN/PAQ-4C is a lightweight, self-contained, Class 1 laser. It is used in conjunction with night vision devices to direct weapon fire at night. The AN/PAQ-4C attached to the M16A2 service rifle. Power Rqmts: 2 AA 1.5 VDC Alkaline or Lithium, Weight: 8 oz.
This item is obsolete. It has been replaced by the AN/PEQ-2 which has been replaced by the AN/PEQ-15 ATPAIL which is being replaced by the AN/PEQ-16.
The AN/GVS-5 is a lightweight, hand-held, binocular-like laser rangefinder used for observation and target acquisition. It contains a panel assembly, optical assembly, and laser transmitter module. It can use either battery or vehicle power (using an adapter cable). The rangefinder provides the operator with the capability to accurately determine range to targets. The AN/GVS-5's special features include: 7 x 15 sighting optics, a multiple target indicator, and minimum range adjustment. The rangefinder can take one ranging per second. It can take approximately 100 rangings before requiring a new battery.
This item is obsolete.
The M2 compass, is a multiple purpose instrument applicable to obtaining clinometer, angle of site, and azimuth readings. The body of the compass is dust proof and moisture proof, and is made of nonmagnetic material except for the magnetic needle and its pivot. When the cover is closed, the magnetic needle is automatic ally lifted from its pivot to protect the pivot point and jewel bearing. The jewel bearing is agate. The compass is provided with an angle of site scale and an azimuth scale. The azimuth scale may be rotated approximately 1, 800 roils. The compass is equipped with circular and tubular levels. In place of a telescope, the compass employs front and rear leaf sights in conjunction with a mirror in the cover for sighting and reading the angles. The instrument has an azimuth scale adjuster for orienting the azimuth scale to the local magnetic declination, so that grid or Y azimuths may be read direct.
The IWNS-T is a clip-on thermal sight that will be used in conjunction with the RCO on the M16A4 service rifle and M4 carbine. The IWNS-T will attach in front of the RCO to the MIL-STD-1913 rail system, while maintaining zero. This thermal device is a portable, battery operated, electro-optical sight used to loacte and engage targets during day, night, and other adverse conditions such as light rain, light snow, and dry smoke.
Weapon Platforms: All versions of the M-16 and M-4 Carbines
Characteristics/Description: This Class 3b laser device, the MIPIM, provides a highly collimated beam of infrared energy for weapon aiming and an adjustable focus infrared beam for target illumination. The MIPIM is designed to withstand the shock of heavy weapons. The White Light Illuminator provides target identification/illumination without night vision devices, and is greater than 60 lumens in the high power mode. The IPIM has low profile aiming and illumination boresight adjusters. This device can be used as a handheld illuminator/pointer or can be mounted to weapons with a MIL-STD-1913 Rail. This item replaces the AN/PEQ-16 (IPIM).
Weapon Platforms: The MIPIM has an Integral Rail Grabber Bracket that mounts to various weapons, including M16A4, M4/M4A1, M240B, M249, and M240G. The MIPIM has an M240/M249 Adapter Bracket.

The VLIR is a compact, lightweight, combat flashlight that projects a wide-angle beam with a concentrated central beam of white light for searching, acquisition, identification, and momentary dazzling of targets in any low-light environment.
The VLIR can be used in either the hand-held or weapon-mounted mode. The VLIR mounts to the M16A4 service rifle, M4A1 Close Quarter Battle Weapon, and the M1014 shotgun via an integral MIL-STD-1913 rail attachment and Rail Adapter System (RAS)
The RCO is a fixed 4x optical aiming sight designed for use with the service rifle configured with the MILSTD-1913 Rail Adapter System. It attaches to the rail to provide the user a targeting tool to engage distant daylight and near low-lit targets with increased identification certainty. The reticles of the two RCO scopes appear identical. However, each reticle is specific to the ballistics of the weapon and is marked with identification (A4 or M4) at the bottom center of the reticle display.
AN/PVS-24 is an individual imaging device capable of acquiring targets at night with increased recognition certainty when used in conjunction with the RCO variants. AN/PVS-24 shall be mounted on all versions of M16 and M4 series weapons equipped with integral MIL-STD-1913 rail systems.
