The G/VLLD set operates in the field to determine the position of an enemy
target and/or to illuminate a target for destruction by laser-seeking
ordnance. When used with the AN/TAS-4 or AN/TAS-4B night sight, the G/VLLD
operates with 24-hour effectiveness.
The G/VLLD operates in the ground
mode, or in the vehicular mode mounted on the M113A1 personnel carrier. The
G/VLLD is a category C laser designator, with the capability of operating as
a category A or B designator. Figure 1-1 lists
