stay with red. it has a smaller impact on night vision and runs cooler.
going with green may affect night vision and since it runs hotter, introduces the need for heat sinking. If you drop it or pistol whip someone, it could break the green diode, because they are delicate.

Your choice. Do you want simple or complicated?

If you could do infrared with night vision goggles, that would be ideal

👉 Maybe the OP is time traveler visiting the future from time to time and received the above answers 7 years ago when visiting, and we are just creating the posts of the time he went to/visited, so all is fine, well, and good /the way it should be--or something like that? 👈
lol

Heheh that could be. Welcome to the future. A lot has changed in 7 years, namely diodes which would have worked just fine for a replacement.
