I don't think those are the BNVD-Ps from Tonbo to be honest, those look more like the prototype GPNVG-18s the US experimented with before they acquired the standard.
Why would Tonbo themselves post what they've posted then?

Not really. The guy has a thermal sight attached to his rifle while also using the BNVD-P, and he's using the mag-well grip when he's got a foregrip attached to his rifle. It's more of a photo-op than anything else, not to mention the PNVG we use are remarkably different than the ones used across the world - like the GPNVG-18.
How different?

The GPNVG-18s used today have white phosphor tech in them which gives them that blue-ish tint you don't see in previous generations. White phosphor makes it easier to detect contrast, object recognition and depth perception noticeably better than previous generations since our eyes are better in detecting black and white contrasts than varying green contrasts. The tubes of the GPNVG-18 are also 18mm compared to the BNVD-P's 16mm.

Like I said in a previous post, the BNVD-P is an ANVIS-10 analog, and not comparable with the GPNVG-18. Price would also be proportional, considering CRPF QATs can afford them..

It is still at least two decades ahead of any tactical NOD the forces have as of today.
