[Telegraph] Invisible tanks could be on battlefield within five years - Page 9

post #81 of 111
I like how some British military scientists said this and people on the internet, still probably in high school with maybe a few college grads here and there, think they know more than them.

Do not assume you are important, that you have the truth, or that anyone is ever arguing with you until you can confirm otherwise. In my time alive, I've discovered that these are the 3 quickest ways to burn bridges, short of being an ass. Unfortunately, you've committed all 4 errors in one go.

1. A few missions here and there is a LOT cheaper than spending the cash to add this to thousands of military vehicles, and

2. It's good PR. Send in troops for rescue mission, wrap american flag around rescued subject and the whole nation cheers. New camo would not have the same effect.

Come on, we went into Iraq with 90% of our equipment still in the forest camo because they were too cheap to get us new equipment. It took years to finally start switching it all out. The military does NOT buy the best and most advanced tech for all their soldiers, they have a budget to worry about. They buy the best they can for as little as they can

Of course, the budget is the largest budget item in the entire world, and has gone to push the US far past the point of bankrupt. Of course, all of that hardware still makes them weak, having lost in Iraq and are losing big in Afghanistan. Perhaps Reagan was right - just stick to the wars they can win, like in Grenada.

1. This isn't new. They've been talking about this for years.

2. This is future tech, who would have thought we'd be overclocking to 5Ghz stable on air even 1 year ago.

3. They said this wouldn't work.


4. And many laughed at this:

We will see.
It's funny, because once the tank fires it's first cannon it will hardly be "invisible" every soldier / tanks & plane will be aware of it's "general location", not to mention you can't hide the smoke from the cannon so....

yeah fail..

Though the element of surprise is huge, there is what is called Infrared Heat Detection, therefore the tanks would have to be "off", and even while off, the electronic ink would probably emit heat, so an even bigger fail..

I read an article that the best paint color aircraft flying night missions isn't black but a blue. However, the military didn't think it was manly enough so they went with black.

Actually they are already on the battle field. I'd show you a picture but, you know, they are invisible.
