I only know of 2 guys on red who had helmet mounted NOD's, one gen3 other I'm not too sure but I believe was gen3 as well.

One of the guys in my section had thermal mounted on rifle, commercially avail phone attachment, but was more for perimeter scans. Blue had proper thermals, someone borrowed a fire dept handheld thermal from their dad iirc.

Blue had significantly more night combat capability but seemed like they didn't know how to use them effectively. That 2nd night fight at Alpha point when blues came round back with UTV support was unexpected but highlighted effectiveness of flashlights vs NOD's. Saw the last surviving blue get hunted down by flashlight and pistol in the brush and it was glorious to see.
Just your friendly neighborhood narcissist gearwhore.
