Finland to order Micro T-2 red dot sights
The Finnish Defence Forces are set to order Aimpoint Micro T-2 red dot sights from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) under a procurement programme valued at $6.45 million.
The sights will be used on the force's modernised 7.62RK 62 assault rifles as part of the Taistelija (Combatant)development programme.
The acquisition is expected to increase the speed and precision of the combatant’s use of weapon as well as the assault rifle’s usability in poor lighting conditions.
The sights will be delivered by the end of 2018.
NSPA partner programmes enable member countries to carry out procurement plans that improve security of supply, cost efficiency, and international compatibility.
