Does anyone have a sense for how much of a sheen IR illuminators on Russian-designed vehicles have? Is it glossy/glassy, or more of a matt finish?

Are you asking about the IR lights on the turrets of Russian vehicles? If so, the lens is a dark reddish black and is glossy/glassy. When not being used, they are usually covered by a steel plate to protect the glass.

Yes. I’m building a ZSU-23-4, which has an IR spotlight on the commander’s cupola and two IR headlights.

Sent back to the USA for repair (as seen on various blogs). Don’t worry, your ‘lads’ will be seeing it again soon enough.
