    In low light conditions yes. The EODAS is in the IR range. And the current gen of HMD in Night vision mode is known to have reduced resolution.

    I don't see why not, in actuality it is video games that rips of real life depictions of HUDs and night vision systems not the other way around. And most real life military HUDs and night visions are actually quite comically simple and cartoonish by intentional design.
