Stealth tank? Stealth tank! Poland just built the world’s first stealth tank!

image

Poland’s new PL-01 “concept” tank is covered in radar-absorbing materials and features temperature-controlled cells on the outer body that can match the surrounding temperature and make the tank invisible to infrared.  On top of that, the heat they give off can be modified to make the stealth tank look like a car, a motorcycle, or even a person to enemy radar.

Production of the PL-01 is set to begin in 2018, with export to NATO countries beginning in 2022.  You can see more photos at Gas 2.

New infrared invisibility cloak hides a tank, makes it look like a Jeep

Militaries are always trying to find a way to get a jump on an enemy, and there’s no better way to get the drop on your foes like invisibility and cloaking.
