The 1P77 sight was created by order of the Ministry of Defense of Russia in 2005 based on the E.G. Popov's optical schematics by a development team including S. I. Mikhalenko, Т. К. Sinitsyna and T. A. Kuznetsova.
For the 1P77 machine-gun sight, the basic requirements were magnification at the level of the PSO-1 sight and a wide field of view.
The sight employs an optical arrangement with a Pechan prism erecting system and sighting angles setting by moving the reticle. The input range is displayed in the bottom part of the field of view. Alignment with the weapon is carried out by moving the lens. As in the 1P76 sight, the reticle is illuminated by a tritium light source.
— wide field of view;
— small size;
— indication within the field of view of the input range with illumination at nighttime by a radioluminescent light source;
— sighting angles and range value are input simultaneously.
