Infra Red Reflectivity aka IRR
IRR protection, what’s this for? It’s what happens when someone is looking at you through a night-sight, thus if your equipment has the applicable-coating your signature will be reduced to that of foliage.
What’s the meaning of signature and what’s it all about? It’s basically about heat shielding when the relevance of IRR comes into it’s own, naturally your skin and body heat emit a signature that will show up through night sights due to be the solar reflectance on exterior surfaces like your skin and equipment which is near your skin compared to foliage which is dead and emits nothing on the scale.
If your kit has no IRR coating, you might as well be a walking glow stick, and thus that’s going to make you an easier target for any opposing force, especially snipers, marksman and you might as well be illuminating the whole of your section.
Think about it, in a real life situation would you really want to make yourself an easier target? Because that’s exactly what you would be doing, especially if you were wearing a non-IRR Bergen when tabbing and patrolling, you might as well be shouting loudly or waving a flag which says “I’m right here!”
