Day 4, Phase 3
Night Sight Fright Fight
Mounts, laser aiming devices, night vision — everything sent — is now, finally, unboxed and being used in the deadly hide-and-seek counterattacks we previewed during the final days of Phase 2.
When Ukrainian forces battled Russia-occupation forces in 2014 their lack of night-vision hampered them. Since then they have been stocking up. America provided a batch of 2,500 military systems in 2018, and other countries have been donating hardware. U.S.-based ATN sent at least 9,000 smart night optics after Putin tried to decapitate Kyiv in February.
But there are never enough to go around.
