IWI / TNVC Nightfighter Course – 2 Day

Course Description


This class is an introduction into low light/ no light shooting utilizing white light and night vision techniques.


The X95/ SAR is a unique system that can adapt to any configuration required.  This course is specifically designed to educate the Tavor user on equipment and techniques used to fight the rifle at night with white light or night observation devices (NODs).  This course will educate the user on methods of attaching while lights, laser aiming modules and how to properly employ various aiming techniques at night with the use of night vision or optics.  There will also be advice on set up and switch placement for all adapted systems.  During the course, students will also be focusing on manipulations and marksmanship in low light conditions from various positions and distances.  This course will be taught in conjunction with TNVC,

a leader in night vision training and authority in the implementation of various Visual Augmentation Systems (VAS).  Students will understand how to properly set up, utilize and employ their systems while understanding what limitations and advantages they afford.

*This course may require some moderate physical activity.

Export of Night Vision Equipment or related accessories (such as manuals) is strictly regulated by the US Department of State in accordance with the guidelines of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). It is a major crime to ship or carry US manufactured night vision devices outside the borders of the United States, punishable by fines and prison sentences. Ignorance of these regulations will not hold up in court. By purchasing night vision equipment from TNVC, you attest that you will not attempt to export or carry this night vision equipment outside the borders of the United States. Also, it illegal to allow a non-US Citizen to look through US Gen3 Night Vision Devices, even on US soil. Again, this is a crime punishable by fines and prison sentences.

All instruction will be performed by members of the Special Operations community or SWAT.
