Russian optics

I find funny that the russian infantry is probably more accurate at night than during the day because of the night sights on their weapons. Is it light intensifiers or thermals ? Why no optics on daytime russians ? From what i've read, it is now common even among run of the mill motor rifle troops.

Night vision sights only, no thermals.

In terms of the separatists and Russian helpers, I haven't seen much optics in the vids I've seen on Youtube and Liveleak.  Yes, the occasional one here and there, but not nearly as many as I have seen in footage from Syria.  Still seeing a lot of iron sights and stock AK-74's (wood furniture), instead of some of the higher-end, obviously sponsored or merc ones from other theaters.  Just my 2 cents though, I'm certainly no expert.

Hmm -- rethinking my comments above, maybe I am comparing apples to oranges, as the rebels presumably are not the same as front-line Russian troops in the CMBS scenario.  CMBS Russians are using AK-74M's (the plastic furniture ones), so maybe it makes sense they would all have optics vs. the rebels with the surplus the Russians are giving them to disguise involvement.
