Hensoldt T*® multi-coating ensures maximum imaging quality at very high magnification even under the most difficult lighting conditions. Increased transparency in the blue spectral range enables outstanding recognition of details under low-light conditions. Various reticles are equipped with continuous illumination and can be dimmed as far as needed to prevent the reticle from over-illuminating the target image even at night. The control electronics are equipped with a memory function which guarantees that the same brightness level is used that was previously set. Perfectly set parallax compensation minimizes target errors and always ensures optimal focus. As with all Hensoldt riflescopes, there are watertight per ISO 9022-81 and nitrogen-filled.
