A bulky, handheld optic device used to assess combat power. Similar to their modern counterparts, the Scout-Scope was capable of identifying the combat power of a target by displaying a numeric value on screen.
Unlike Scouters, this device seems to be capable of switching between night vision, and thermal vision. Signifying that the design was more likely meant to help a soldier see, rather than designate targets. They can also double as sniper scopes as shown by their use by Saiyan Army Snipers.
