Oh, sorry dude... I misunderstood your issue.
I didn't show attention on that shift+enter part ;)
I can confirm that issue in the latest dev-branch too. I think there are some minor problems with the newly added inventory function before entering the mission (in the "team" tab).
Maybe change the summary to: "No binocular/rangefinder after previewing a mission with Shift+Enter" ...maybe it will help people like me to not post any bullshit :D
