sorry its with Hueyand aircraft from FC3.

In FC3 (going from memory so bear with me :D) I think you get equiped with the Night Vision Goggles (NVG) or the Helmet Mounted Sight (HMS) but not both at the same time. You need to use the ground crew radio to ask for one or the other to be installed.

For the Huey, in a 2AM mission then 'right shift + H' seems to work ok for me as a toggle for NVG on a default loadout mission from the editor:

Its not just the NVG's its a lot of keys on all aircraft any ideas.

Are upgrading from an earlier installed version or trying a beta? Often the controls profile won't migrate that way. You can test that out but resetting your control profile. Rename the directory:

X:\Users\(YourWindowsUsername)\Saved Games\DCS\Config\Input

to 'Input-backup' and restart DCS. It will create a new one with defaults.

Ive not upgraded form an earlier version or a beta one, these have only been downloaded in the last week or so.

Did you try creating a new profile as described above?

Is it a EN-US keyboard and locale?
