Abstract : A combination optical and iron sight system for a rocket launcher is provided. The combination sight system has a mounting bracket for attachment to a spotter rifle of a typical rocket launcher. A sight mounting bracket having an elevation adjustment and a windage adjustment is adapted for attachment to the spotter rifle mounting bracket. The adjustable sight mounting bracket has a mounting structure for an iron sight and a mounting bracket structure for an optical sight. Each sight, the optical sight and iron sights may be adjusted individually with respect to the adjustable bracket. Thereafter, adjustments to both sights can be made simultaneously by adjustment of the bracket itself in both windage and elevation.
