I don't see any use for Thermal Optics. Its because of its lesser range versus Night Vision and how Night Vision gives same effect. Only difference is the color. When I was in army, they told me that dont use NV in day because it would break. I think NV needs to be "nerfed to oblivion" and be only able to use in night or buff Thermal Optics. How I would do it. Night Vision - Would be extremely bright in day and therefore useless. Night should be nearly completely dark that it would be very hard to spot even a tank from a range. Then Night Vision would work like it would work in real life, brightens the light so you could see in night. Would have extremely long range in night. Thermal Optics - Could be usable in day or night. In night it wouldn't have as long range as NV would have, but you could spot targets easier in close range than with NV. In day it would work like NV works in day now. Also IR/NV would work like vehicles NV. Thermal Optics aren't completely useless. But how NV works in day (just like thermal optics but different colors) and has longer range, wipes away the point to use Thermal Optics. Also 50 certs NV vs 200 certs Thermal Optics makes the situation even worse. SOE, change this as this is 101% brainfart from you. This isn't how it should work and this is very badly balanced. You don't want to have 1 useless optic in the game. EDIT: Also NV shouldn't give a vision through smoke while Thermal should. Add this to the change too.
