IZLID (IR laser) mounted on the gun

Recommended Posts

IZLID's have been mounted to the 30mm to enhance coordination between air-ground units. It's only visible with NVG and not FLIR. 

The lasers have been used a lot to point targets out for aircraft 



The other way around an IZLID mounted on the gun can be used to point out feature/subjects of interest to ground forces in a visual manner.

The reference material (251-10 dated 2005) doesn't mention the laser pointer.

However, I'm not sure if they are sticking to a 2005 version LBA, since in one of the release pictures you can clearly see a CMWS CIU panel at the right.

The only mention of CMWS in the 2005 document is on the WCA description, therefore, it's unclear if it was installed at that time, I thought it was installed around 2007 or 2008.

Looking at late block 2 apaches, if you see the center pedestal, below the check over speed tests and wiper panels, you will see a panel that isn't displayed on the ED released pictures, it has controls for an IR laser for the AWS, the blue force tracker, and an IR strobe.

I believe it may have something to do with the IZLID.

Later apaches just have controls for the Laser pointer in the WPN page.
