    Oh and for the record it’s a Blouson Jacket, The Ike Jacket refers to a specific model that was introduced for US forces. The Term is misused a bit by both makers and even the navy. The Ike however has features we don’t see on this one. It most closely matches the Blouson.
    Interesting These photos show two forces wearing the Green version. The top photo has the Ground Forces flag on his shoulder as does the bottom. However the second is clearly the Chinese Naval Ensign.

    I would say it's dark blue in the second picture. Compare to those on the right in green he clearly wears a different color.

    Hmmm.. maybe your right. The under shirt looks white for sure well you have a more khaki on the other guy. The lighting of the photo does make them neutral a bit. So we have Army and Navy in issue but the Airforce guy is clearly still in full type 07

    Anyone got any more info on the new NODs PLA soldiers were wearing during the national day parade?

    They are extremely compact, and looks to also be extremely light based on the mounting system. Together with the offset eyepiece design, makes me think these are digital NODs instead of more traditional IIT based NODs currently standard in military and police issue.

    Digital night vision has advanced considerably in recent years, there are some commercially available models that are approaching the minimum threshold of being a viable option, but one that is still significantly inferior to top of the line tradition IIT based NODs.


    Some examples OTTOMH are the Pard NV007/8 and Sionyx Aurora.

    The PLA one seems like a much more advanced and refined device on similar lines to the Aurora.

    No offence meant to Americans, but in terms of top of the line advanced commercial micro electronics, there is nowhere in America that can compete with China, so I would not be surprised at all if a Chinese attempt to create a digital NOD would be significantly better and cheaper than what the American commercial electronics industry could put together; and it seems the offering is good enough for the PLA to pick it up.

    I will be in China shortly, so would be very keen to try and pick up a pair if I can find out who makes them.
