Zoom Optics is a vehicle specialization in Battlefield 3 that provides extra magnification for weapon sights. This helps the player engage distant threats and use "Sniper Vehicle" tactics. It is activated by the Aim button. The reticle adjusts to fit the different magnifications provided by the specialization.

Ground vehicles receive about 3 × magnification, while the gunner position in attack helicopters receive about 4 × magnification.

Zoom Optics are also equipped on gunner positions on armored ground vehicles and anti-air emplacements. The gunner weapons on various light vehicles and transport helicopters has an "aim down sight" feature (despite not actually using the weapon's sights) that focuses the user's field of view and permits more precise aiming by reducing the pan and tilt sensitivity.
