The HIK Micro Thunder is now available as a front clip on, transforming your existing optical scope into a thermal riflescope. The front mounting system allows you to switch between shooting with your conventional optic during daylight hours and shooting with the thermal Image without affecting your point of impact.

The 35mm Thunder thermal module is the centre of the system with its 35mm lens system and 384x288px, 17um sensor delivering excellent image quality. The sub 35 NETD performance of the sensor ensures detection of small temperature changes and excellent performance in harsh conditions.

The thunder shares much of its software with the range of HIK Micro monoculars and anyone who has used one of the other products will instantly feel at home. The Thunder offers 4 colour palettes, white-hot, black hot, red hot and fusion. The thunder also connects to the T-Vision app to seamlessly share or record your shooting experience.

The thunder is available with a range of lenses and accessories that allow you to use it in a variety of configurations. Add the riflescope lens and your thunder will show you a reticle and zeroing menu, add the Picatinny rail and securely attach it to your rifle and you are ready to start shooting. Remove the rail and disable the reticle and you have a high performance thermal monocular. (riflescope lens system available separately or as part of the Ultimate Thunder package).
