This is the PL-01 concept tank, a three-crew 35-ton tank that can turn itself invisible to infrared missiles thanks to a mesh of thermal tiles that change their temperature to match the environment. Designed by Poland's OBRUM. Yes, it also cool as hell!
The idea of the PL-01 is to try and eliminate the infrared, radar and visual signature of the traditional tank to a large degree, while also relying on guile to take identity masking a step further. Watch the video of it, cool.
