Nocturn Industries Tanto - Ultralight Adaptable Night Vision Monocular From: $1,149.99 Original price was: $1,149.99.$949.99Current price is: $949.99.

We offer tantos in three colors (Black, FDE and OD Green) with L3, Elbit and Photonis tubes.  Actual specs and photos of each in stock unit are in the drop down menus (please note: color shade of blue/green is due to photo lighting, all tubes will actually be the same light blue in color).

Handpicked Option – Select this if you want Custom Night Vision to select intensifier tubes for you instead of selecting a set from our inventory.  We will contact you (typically within 24-48 hours of placing your order) with pictures and specs of tubes we select to ask for your approval. If you have preferences on certain specs (ie: SNR, EBI etc…) please include those in your order notes and we will do our best to meet your goal.  After customer tube approval the night vision unit will be ready to ship within 1 to 3 business days.

We offer three choices of Optics

  1. Standard Mil Spec Optics
  2. Rochester Precision Optics (RPO) 3.0 Ultralight
  3. Photonis Defense Boomslang 50 Degree FOV

We have the Nocturn Industries TAPB (Tanto Articulating Powered Bridge) “Daisho”  in stock and we offer free collimating services

We offer L3Harris 20UA and 20 UA Supergain tubes.  20UA tubes will have a typical FOM of 2200-2600 with an EBI of 0.5 to 2.0 and 20UA Supergain will have a typical FOM of 1800-2200 with an EBI of 0.2 to 0.5.

SuperGain Filmless White Phosphor image intensifier tubes increase the Luminance Gain (Gain) specification for image intensifier tubes from the standard 40,000-80,000 fL/fc to between 100,000-120,000 fL/fc.  This greatly increases the image intensifier’s ability to amplify and collect light, resulting in a noticeably brighter image with increased low light performance and extending operational envelope and ability to see into dark areas.

The cornerstone of Nocturn’a adaptable series of night vision devices is the Tanto Ultralight Adaptable Night Vision Monocular (UANVM). This Nocturn Industries Tanto mounts via a standard PVS-14 J-arm mount. A unique feature of this monocular is its ability to be adapted to a proprietary powered articulating dual bridge mount called the TAB (Tanto Articulating Bridge) “Daisho” with minimal tools or extra parts. The innovative design allows users to transform their Tanto night vision monocular into an articulating binocular in seconds or go from a binocular back to a monocular to share with a partner. To transform into the binocular, simply remove the battery cap and battery, insert the bridge into the battery compartment, and tighten the rear clamp screws on the bridge, done. The bridge enables the use of a single battery for both tubes, has built in IP stops similar to the UANVB “Katana”, and other features when released.

It is simple with a minimalist lightweight design. Push button on/off in the cap to reduce weight and reduce the footprint of the monocular. When assembled to the TAB “Daisho” bridge extra features are enabled such as articulation to the side for single or dual eye use. The articulating design also enables users to operate vehicles without limiting head space by eliminating the need to stow the unit upright or to tuck the pods against the helmet when stowed.

This unit is light weight without compromising strength. It is rugged and has been drop from the NATO 1.5 meter drop test standard onto concrete, as well as meets and exceeds MIL-STD-810G.

2 reviews for Nocturn Industries Tanto – Ultralight Adaptable Night Vision Monocular

  1. Frank S (verified owner)

    The buying experience went super smooth, I opted for Elbit 2376+ Handpicked and shortly after completing the transaction I was contacted then confirmed that I was happy with the specs of my tube. The order was then shipped out the next day. As for the tanto, I am very impressed with it, it’s super lightweight (don’t even have to run a counter weight) and if you want to eventually run duals as opposed to a PVS14 with panobridge this is definitely a solid route to go as the Daisho bridge makes it into a true articulating bino plus weight savings. As for the choice of mounting arm I went with the AX14 pro which I ended up having to re-torque the screws at both joints since they were loose

  2. Isaac K. (verified owner)

    Fantastic. I ordered two L3 WP PH tantos for a bridged setup in two different purchases because my bank’s fraud prevention is super sensitive. Within just a couple of hours of each purchase Custom NV called me and sent me pics of the tubes they had picked for my approval. They were also super cool with the multiple-purchase situation and made sure not only to get tube that matched great, but also absolutely nailed some pretty specific shipping requests. The pair are now setup on a Nightvision Plus Arc bridge and FAR out perform any set of NODs I’ve been issued or even tried off duty. Would certainly purchase again. Would certainly recommend.
