The IRV 900 A2 can be used either as a clip-on system with 1x magnification or as a stand-alone target lens with digital zoom. A colour monitor allows for easier target reconnaissance with false colour display. The uncooled infrared attachment is noiseless and ready for use within 5 seconds.

In addition, the IRV 900 A2 is distinguished by the fact that it can be used on assault rifles, light and medium machine guns, multi-purpose machine guns and designated marksmen rifles.
