"British Military Scientists . . . Working To Develop An Army of Invisible Tanks"

Invisible Tanks


     LONDON, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- British military scientists say they're working to develop an army of invisible tanks ready for use on the battlefield within five years.

The armored vehicles will use a technology known as "e-camouflage" that would let images on the vehicle's hull change to match their environment, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

Sophisticated electronic sensors attached the tank's hull would project images of the surrounding environment back on the outside of the vehicle, helping it blend into the landscape and evade attack, the report said.
