Peekaboo - Now you see me, now you don't !
Oh c'mon fellas, wouldn't you like to buy a suit of this material, just to stay behind your boss and kick him/her in the rear .. just for fun !?
Or... how about that ex girlfriend of yours that was cheating on you ?
Good question ! This camouflage is not proofed to be 100% invisible - nothing is !
But excellent in night battles, even daytime warfare. It has no visual, thermal, infrared signature or severely diminishes visibility.
And yet, it might be susceptible to radar, when sharp metal edges are present, since equipment is mostly made of metal.
It will require a massive outlays of money to equip every individual soldier, tank, howitzer batteries etc, to be relevant on the
battlefield by locating stealth armies.
I don't believe we might get to tanks in todays nuclear battlefield or not at least after major resistance has been overcome
and mopup operations begin. To be more realistic, huge armies on the field are gonna be counterproductive, since a tactical nuke can wipe out a division in a flash...personnel and hardware.
First strike will be at satellites to eliminate the "eye in the sky" component and then the heavy ICBMs are going to annihilate cities over 50000 residents. The rest will require boots on the ground after radiation subside to finish off any survivors.
But yes..camouflage is integral part of past, present and future wars. Here is naval WWII camouflage...they were counter stealth in those days...the more visibility..the more confusion.lol
Clever isn't ?
Here is some read in the link below on the so called dazzle ships of the 1940s.
The "camouflage" used on each of the Navy's "Dazzle Ships" was unique to the ship, and its purposes were many. First, it prevented the enemy from identifying the ship, its class, its cargo, or even what kind of ship it was. It also made determining the ship's course and speed difficult. If an...
My fav is that to keep german Uboats from seeing attacking allied aircraft- they mounted super bright LIGHTS all over the front of the plane.
It was determined that aircraft are spotted because they are DARKER than the surrounding sky- so having them decked out in kleig lamps made it much harder to spot them in time to dive before they could drop a bomb or depth charge on the boat.
