It's not a 75-3 because it only has a 50mm objective lens.
In terms of the sensor, objective lens and near eye display, it's the direct equivalent to the Ward WT1-50-3, and close to the Pulsar Trail XQ50 -although the near eye display in the Trail is not as good.
Although ATN now have a sales and marketing operation in the UK (they import their kit from China so it doesn't fall foul of the ITAR regulations) they do not have a good reputation for reliability and for providing a good back up for their products - just ask Carl Moore who used to be the main ATN distributor for the UK
The illuminator in your link is ridiculously overpriced - there are loads of illuminators with interchangeable pills and better performance available for less than £100
The only IR LED worth considering for use in an illuminator is the Oslon AS and most pills are set up so that it produces 2000mW of IR.
The Armasight IR illuminator claims that the IR LED is producing 1300mW which leads me to believe that it's using the old Oslon S LED.

I think I enquired about this and was told it is not a weapon site, no mount or reticle.

That's an even better reason not to buy it!!
