The Shakhin thermal sight provides for round-the-clock target detection and recognition, input of initial firing data and aiming from different types of small arms and hand-held grenade launchers.

The Shakhin sight is an uncooled passive thermal imaging device that requires no supplementary artificial target illumination sources for its operation. It operates in the spectral range of 8-14 microns, which offers the prospect of aimed firing under conditions when a target is obscured by dust and smoke arising at the battlefield.

It can be installed on all modifications of the Kalashnikov gun, AN-94 Nikonov submachine gun, SVD sniper rifle, РКМ and Pecheneg general-purpose machine guns, as well as on the Kord heavy machine gun.

The sight is installed on a weapon with the aid of a special bracket. The sight memory can store ballistic data for four types of weapon (cartridges) simultaneously.

Developed and manufactured by: Cyclone Central Research Institute. Moscow.

Chief Designer: A. E. Sdobnikov.
