@Alucard Yes, it's from the game itself, from Scorched Earth if I remember correctly. But it's really good that they bring it remastered and really functional.

From what i recall these tek binoculars were cut from the vanilla game your mod even uses the art and model from that cut item xD

Sad that they only decided to bring it back in the remaster but oh well that's what mods are for!

@gamer300as It's gratifying to see the game putting the idea of mods natively into the game.
