(30-10-2019) [1.91.0.132] BO 105 CB-2 lacks sight NV and laser rangefinder

What sets the CB-2 variant apart from the other BO 105's in the game is the Swedish developed HeliTOW sight system, which in reality featured "high performance IR" and a laser for rangefinding and target designation.

 

The game currently [patch 1.91.0.132 as of writing this] only features NV for the pilot's view of the BO 105 CB-2, and lacks the previously mentioned infrared sight and rangefinding/designation laser the HeliTow sight system historically had.

The currently used TOW versions do not utilize a laser designator.

 

As for the infrared sight, please provide screenshots of the sources that explicitly state it was capable of this.

Here, I have highlighted the bits of text from the sources linked above regarding the IR capability, as well as laser rangefinding.
