    Red face Are these Machines the Future of War?

    'Invisible' Tech allows Tanks to blend in with background.


    Defense contractor BAE Systems is working on an optical camouflage technology that will make tanks and other vehicles blend in with their surroundings.

    Within a few years the Brits may deploy invisible Armored Tanks onto the Battlefield, a Breakthrough in Stealth Technology.

    Full Article can be read here.

    What do you guys think of this, it's very clever ofcourse but won't these Tanks be easy to spot with Heat Sensors/InfraRed? o.O

    That looks sick, but once you said about the heat sensors, it would be half as good.

    Yes I don't know
    That was just the first thing I thought, they may look like Cacti but when the Enemy knows they're using it...
    They can still Radar them / find them with Heat Sensors.
    And while the Brits Tanks think they're safe they get bombed.

    It will just look like it's background
    But the refresh rate has to be very fast when the Tank is moving...

    If the Tank is 'lagging' the enemy will notice
