    Engineers at a factory in northern Russia are developing a new generation of holographic weapon sights, which have no analogues in the world.

    Presenting the all-new Valdai PG-210 holographic weapon sight at a military expo held earlier this month in Kubinka, just outside Moscow, the Yupiter factory’s director, Nikolai Klimkin, described it as “a lightweight and easy-to-use day/night wide-angle scope.”

    The PG-210 holographic gun sight with binocular observation ensures an increased rate of fire at moving targets.

    “We are now working on one of a kind holographic gun sights with variable rangefinding reticles,” Klimkin emphasized.

    The new sight’s additional forte is its invisibility to existing means of optical detection.

    Designed expressly for use with the Kalashnikov assault rifles, the Valdai PG-210 holographic sight can also be easily installed on hunting, sportsman rifles and other non-military weapons.


    A holographic weapon sight is a non-magnifying gun sight that allows the user to look through a glass optical window and see a cross hair reticle image superimposed at a distance on the field of view.

    The hologram of the reticle is built into the window and is illuminated by a laser diode.
