At high Sight intensity in the presence of external illumination and if a target is silhouetted against a light background (sand, snow, etc.), the target recognition range increases. Al low light intensity, Sow cloud ceiling» poor air transparency and if a target is silhouetted against a dark background (arable land, tree trunks, etc.), the recognition range decreases.
