In the world of night vision there are a few different bridge options. Bridges will allow users to combine two PVS14’s to create binoculars. Bridges can also allow users to run dual MH25 (or similar) thermal monoculars. Our preferred combination is one PVS14 and one MH25 thermal. This is the best of both worlds: see heat signatures immediately while being able to navigate and shoot with the PVS14.
What is included with the Mod Armory Bridge?
The Mod Armory Dovetail Bridge includes the main body with the quick release shoes as well as TWO PVS14 arms. One arm is for the left eye, one arm is for the right eye. Each arm is laser etched to state which side it belongs on. The Mod Armory bridge does NOT include the dovetail adapter for thermal monoculars. This will need to be purchased separately.
Our experience with this bridge:
Initially we purchased and ran the panobridge in the field with our MH25’s and our PVS14’s. The panobridge worked well for this task, but due to how the MH25 mounts, we really had to run either the MH25 or the PVS14. The units did not align 100% properly to overlay correctly. We then started the search for other bridges that would allow better positioning of the MH25 thermal in order to be able to run dual MH25’s or simultaneous use of an MH25 and PVS14. We found that the Mod Armory bridge along with the dovetail adapter for the MH25 allowed proper positioning of the MH25 next to the PVS14. While this does NOT guarantee that everyone’s brain will be able to combine the images and overlay them, it does mean that the units are in the correct position to do so.
Other notable traits of the Mod Armory Bridge:
The quick disconnect shoes are amazing. Units can easily be removed when not in use. One downside to having two quick disconnect shoes is users MUST be careful not to bump the release buttons. Doing so will result in units falling off the users helmet. ALWAYS use tie downs/lanyards to secure night vision equipment to helmets.
*Note: Images show night vision optics attached. This is ONLY the bridge and does NOT include any night vision monoculars or optics.
