CBC IR Tracer ammunition was designed for night operations, granting the combat forces a stealth advantage. The bullet trace is completely invisible to the naked eye and only visible with the use of Night Vision Devices (NVDs).
The technology gives the fighter higher engagement effectiveness since the target visualization is not ofuscated by the halo effect. With the use of a special propellant that virtually eliminates muzzle flash, it allows a tactical upper hand by keeping the shooter’s position unexposed.
The trace performance is achieved due to a special tracer composition that keeps the wave length emission within the IR spectrum, therefore visible only through NVDs – GEN 3 and beyond.
CBC IR Tracer complies with STANAGs 2310 (for the 7.62mm) and 4172 (for the 5.56mm), as well as with NATO (Multi-caliber MOPI Standard). The ballistic trajectories for both 5.56 and 7.62 IR match NATO reference cartridges, making them interchangeable with regular tracers.
