The Chinese Type 62 Daylight Binocular was developed in 1961, based on Soviet ?8 IR observing binocular, which is essentially Soviet copy of classic ZEISS Deltrentis 8×30.
Type 62 Daylight Binocular have been known for it's superb optical system, excellent image quality , light weight, ease to use, and very sturdy build for exceptional durability.
It have been supplied to Vietnam, North Korea, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Cambodia, ext, as military aid.
Type 62 have been constantly improved during it's 50 + years of service history. Earlier version has coated glass from DDR Zeiss, and some version comes with mil-spec glass contains special rare-earth minerals. Type 62 binocular still remain as active service munition for PLA highland/alpine units, desert patrol units, paratroop units and para-police border patrol units.
After years of works, we have secured a batch of Mil Spec Type 62 Daylight Binoculars, which are produced in early 1980. They are currently in PAL service condition, and have been serviced by armorer recently.
Lenses have been cleaned, desiccant have been replaced, protection/storage grease have been applied
Some of them may have marred desiccant caps. Two-tone discolored lens may also present due to oxidization and armorer repair/upgrade.
