|“||The ITL Multi-Purpose Aiming Reflex Sight is a battery powered Israeli red dot optic. It's made for accurate high performance sighting in tactical situations.|
The ITL MARS (Multi-Purpose Aiming Reflex Sight) is a combination two sighting devices, utilizing a reflex sight and a laser sight. It also sports a back-up iron sight atop of the optic housing. It was developed by ITL Optronics, which is based in Israel. The laser can be visible or in infrared, with the setting toggle-able with a pressure switch.
It has been purchased by many forces including the US Military for the M16, Israel for the IMI TAR-21 "Tavor", and India (locally manufactured) for their INSAS rifle. Though, the company has ceased the its production since the late 2010s due to poor sales.
The licensed Indian version is still in production, called the Raptor Sight. The model in-game appears to be this variant due to its relative commonality compared to the original.
The MARS is a very clear sight with a small reticle and wide field of view. On most firearms, this optic has slightly higher magnification than the late optics like the Kobra Sight, Reflex Sight and Coyote Sight.
The optic also has back up iron sight for weapon with above-the-sight capacity, like shotguns. Though, the optic does not change the magnification of the above-the-sight aiming. It also has a Laser built into the optic, allowing for better hip-fire accuracy.
Usage and Tactics
This sight is best used on weapons with a large muzzle flash like the AK47. It is also very practical on weapons with low sight accuracy with its intregral laser, providing both a simple optic and a laser sight, freeing up the Underbarrel and Other attachment categories for alternative attachments, such as Armor Piercing.
Pros & Cons
- Unobstructive reticle.
- Large field of view (FoV).
- Higher mounting means muzzle flash does not obstruct user's aim.
- Has an integrated laser.
- Somewhat obstructive optic frame, especially near the base.
- Prior to the Winter Update, the MARS sight in-game lacked a built-in laser sight. This has since changed.
- The MARS sight is the only optic in-game to feature an integral attachment.
- The MARS technically includes a small back-up iron sight atop the ring. This cannot be used by players.
