None? Is it just a NATO requirement for mil glass? Meaning, we can source from NATO countries? I thought that most if not all of the military materiel, etc had to be domestic origin? Is that not the case?

Most top quality scopes use Japanese lenses. (
Even many of the high end German scopes use Japanee lenses.
