    Similar tactical helmet with the rails but with the additional head coverage. But the same PAP multicam style camo, on a ballistic vest, identical to those fielded by the regular forces.
    Also note the polymer arm and elbow pads.

    The PAP pattern is not based n multicam, It's a pixelated form of Tigerstripe.

    Approaching the limit of what can be defined as 'combat equipment' but important in maintaining public order in conflict zones, riot gear issued to the infantry battalion in South Sudan.

    Upon further digging, I believe I have found the unknown sight in your post to likely be (or similar to) the 'PVS-14' night vision multipurpose monocular (likely the same with some aesthetic deviation such as the ridges and eye cup). For use as either as a rifle NV optic, or as a standalone NVG monocular. This would make sense seeing that the rest of the equipment in the photo is also to do with NV or thermal imaging.

    PVS is a US designed night vision device made by Harris and L3 communications. That would fall into to the military technology category of restricted. It may resemble the PVS14 much like how the quad night vision goggles resemble the GNPVS 8 but it is not the same. Because of the way these systems work and what they are intended to do a resembence is expected but beyond outside appareances, they are bound to be different beasts.

    Tactical tablets are in military vogue now, they can be used to display maps, GPS location and when coupled with a radio sent encrypted text messages.
