Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

A new generation of dummies and fakes that come out of thin air: Inflatable stuff that also emits radar bands and heat sigs:





Quote
Rusbal designers came up with an idea to inflate tanks like air balloons. That the new dummies look very similar to real military hardware is by far not their only virtue.

They can reproduce a radar band, a thermal and near infra-red band similar to those produced by night vision instruments. All these makeshift models appear as real hardware on all these instruments.

The dummies irradiate warmth, making an impression of engines being warmed up and repel the radio waves of enemy radars as if they were real combat vehicles.

Moreover, to make the illusion more convincing a launcher, for example, can assume traveling or combat positions when photographed from air or from outer space.

Yury Stepanov, the enterprises laboratory chief explained:

In a real district, a tanks tower can be fixed more to the left or more to the right, so we show all these positions. There can be additional fuel tanks. The real vehicles can have them.

It takes an inflatable tank four minutes and a missile launcher five minutes to be set up on the battlefield.

Wonder if they will sell this stuff to civilians? would be a good show to have a T-80 or a S-300
launcher in your garden...  dance

Those would be extremely valuable in any major contest between the Soviet Union and any nation with good recon resources.

Good Hunting.

Maybe not the original idea (even the Romans used dummies), but this latest news, yes indeed, now even found a vid:

I'd certainly like to have one myself - imagine if they'd actually do comissions! One could have his most favorite tank sitting in the garden... Too bad I exactly know already what my wife would have to say about it. cry

Under poor visibility conditions or at very long distances they could even fool people on the ground!
