There's something to be said about hammer-painted apparatus from the Cold War era. They are sometimes functional, often uncomfortable, and always heavy. These Polish Night Vision Goggles tick all the boxes! Use with a vintage Warsaw Pact steel helmet for the best effect.

There's something to be said about hammer-painted apparatus from the Cold War era. They are sometimes functional, often uncomfortable, and always heavy. These Polish Night Vision Goggles tick all the boxes! Use with a vintage Warsaw Pact steel helmet for the best effect.

The goggles are mounted to a frame with an adjustable linkage system, IR illuminator, and a claw mount for attaching the whole thing to the front of a helmet. The illuminator and goggles have separate cables that run to a battery box with a shoulder strap. The whole thing comes in a box but there's also a canvas bag for easier carrying in the field.

The device attaches to the front of most Warsaw Pact helmets and makes the helmet front-heavy, probably to keep your head down. It should be a reasonable hack job to mate it with a more ergonomic headband system.

Batteries are not included and the nominal operating voltage is 6 Volts so coming up with an alternative should not be difficult if you're tech-savvy. The battery case has plenty of room so capacity should not be a problem.

The wooden box (yes, wood, to emphasize the space-ageness of this instrument) is rather exciting in itself and includes some extra trinkets of various types, for example, two IR Pass filters that probably fit the headlights of your UAZ or maybe they are just spares for the headlamp. Outside measurements of the box about 41 x 31 x 23 cm weight 9.5 kg (16" x 12" x 9" / 21 lbs).

A bright future

These work just fine with your "regular household infrared flashlight" so if you're willing to sacrifice cool for performance, you can remove the huge headlamp. If you already came up with an alternative lightweight power source and headband system, this might actually be somewhat usable!

Polish surplus

These are used but in a good condition and tested to be functional by our supplier, but not by us so no guarantees on that. Understand, that these were made in Poland over half a century ago so if they work, we can't guarantee how long these remain operational. We're selling these for collectors, not serious users.

Ok, so the first one I got didn't work, but the good folks at Varusteleka were fast to get in touch with me to resolve the problems.
Great costumer service!
And working to resolve the matter as we speak.

I got my pair and bought a 6v battery, I opened the box and it looked mint I was so surprised my example works perfectly and is more crystal clear then I thought. Yours may not turn out like mine and function but I’ll pray for you that yours work too.

Ostin hetken mielijohteesta josko tästä saisi mielenkiintoisen askarteluprojektin. Lekan toimitus olikin niin nopea etten ehtinyt hankkia sopivaa akkua mutta eipä hätää, vedin jesarilla neljä kappaletta 1,5V paristoa sarjaan ja sain testattua toimivaksi. Laite antoi yllättävän selkeän kuvan, varsinkin ottaen huomioon että on itäblokista ja näin vanhaa kamaa, toki sitä tasapainottamassa on melko vahva kalansilmäefekti. Eikä tätä kyllä pirukaan pidä tämmöisenä päässään vaikka sopiva kypärä löytyisikin. Mutta kun ostin sillä mielellä että saa vähän puuhaa ja potentiaalisesti lopputuloksena toimivan lelun niin olen tyytyväinen, eli suosittelen mutta sillä varauksella että tarvii nähdä vähän vaivaa. Varmaan about samaan hintaan saa nykyaikaisia laitteita jotka toimii suoraan paketista mutta itse tykkään paskartelusta ja itäblokin estetiikasta niin tää on just hyvä.

I just got this product and I'm very happy with it. It works, and it only draws 2 amps at 6V. This means that I can power it with a 6V 2.7A-hour NiMH battery which is so small it leaves tons of room in the battery compartment. I ordered a hard hat from another vendor to mount it on. Also, great customer service - thank you!
I connected the 6V 2.7A-hr battery and it works fine. No load voltage is 6.5V and full load (2A) voltage is 5.5V. Voltage is a little low, but good night time visibility.
I zip-tied a 3 pound barbell on the back of the hard hat to balance the weight of the NS-71 and it works (it's all heavy, though).

Täytyy sanoa että oli suuri ilo kun vahvistin alkoi kehräämään ja tuubit syttyi vihreiksi kun yhdistin härvelin 9v patteriin. Laite toimi mainiosti ja laatikkokin on nätti, vaikkakin sieltä puuttuu työkalut ja varaosat. Akku pitää toki itse löytää, sillä pieni patteri ei tätä kauaa jaksa hengissä pitää saati itseään.
