I just saw this for the second time. With more chances to concentrate on details, this came to mind. When the D boys and the SAW gunner were going in on foot at night, they had helmet mounted NVGs, but they were monocular, ie the vision of both eyes was enhanced through a single NV lens. How do you use weapon sights with a cyclops-type setup? THanks.

The Army developed a "dim" tracer, the M996 for 5.56mm, distiguished by a violet tip. The "trace" is still visible to the naked eye, but has less tendency to cause bloom or washout when using night vision devices.
