Tactical 10x42 R
The new 10x42 R Tactical binocular has been developed as a compact roof prism tactical surveillance and operations binocular incorporating the newly developed SUMR targeting reticle system. Using entirely new optical system formulations, new, fully multi-coated optics and a completely new shock and waterproof housing, the 10x binocular delivers a new standard of performance in a tactical binocular that includes a new Mil Reticle Targeting System allowing faster and more accurate communications between the spotter/observer and shooter or weapons delivery personnel.
By building the universal reticle into a 10x42 Roof Prism Binocular, Steiner is able to offer a smaller, rugged and light weight binocular in a power that matches the favored magnification used in many of the newer 10x Military rifle scopes used by Army, Air and Marine SOF and LE Forces on rifles in calibers from 5.56 through .50 BMG and beyond. The reticle is based on the standard Mil System. The binocular reticle is truly a multi-role tool since the reticle's mil graduations combine standard 5 and 10 mil increments that reduce down to single and split mils towards the center of the view area enabling the user to effectively accomplish observations, coordinate direct and indirect small arms fire.
The 10x42 R also features a new ergonomically designed housing and a special rubberized armor covering to protect the binocular from the harshest conditions.
