Default Gazelle pod?

While reading online about the Gazelle, I found this photograph linked on the Wikipedia page:

ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:G..._(cropped).jpg

Does anyone know what that pod-thing is that is mounted on the starboard pylon?

That would be a FLIR turret.

It's a Northern Ireland fit Gazelle with FLIR pod, known in the Army as Heli-Telly (Telly is short for Television in British slang)

The very thing! When I was growing up in Belfast the sound of the Gazelle was never far away, one of the reasons I know the Polychop sound model is top-notch!
