This is an army binocular made in 2004 by Romanian manufacturer IOR. It does not feature a reticle, but has a relatively wide field and a bright image and is, despite its heavy rubber armour, quite compact and lightweight. As with most military binoculars, focusing is done individually at each eyepiece. The eyecups are made of rubber, but cannot be folded down, so the usable eye relief – just 6mm – prevents the use of this binocular by spectacle wearers.
