PL-01 concept tank, an infrared-invisible tank, awesome!

Array
Gear  |  Military


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.

Russia's New Underwater Assault Rifle Can Shoot 800 Shots Per Minut

Gear  |  Military
Russia’s latest innovation in weapons technology, the ADS assault rifle, was manufactured by the state KBP design bureau and presented to the public yesterday at the Interpolitex 2013 arms exhibition in Moscow. It's based on the venerated A-91M bullpup assault rifle platform and fires 5.45x39mm M74 rounds (the same used by the AK-74) when on land. It's simple to toggle between water and air mode, though soldiers do have to reload the weapon with underwater-friendly ammunition before submerging. Cool Watch more videos after more.

Last year, DARPA unveiled Cheetah: a robot that could run faster than Usain Bolt. Now, the same team has managed to create a version that doesn't need a power cord, the WildCat. It can run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits, watch the video.
"WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat's best performance so far. WildCat is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA's M3 program"

Iran's latest transgression is especially hilarious: they've photoshopped their latest Qaher 313 fighter onto a stock image of Mount Damavand to make it look like it's flying. Seriously, the stock image that Iran used of magestic Mount Damavand can be found at PickyWallpapers.com. And, well, look at how they put two and two together...

Iran unveiled its indigenous fighter jet named "Qaher 313″. The prototype of the Q-313 (or F-313 according to the stencils applied to the aircraft), was presented to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and publicly displayed as part of the Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies held in Iran to celebrate the 1979′s victory of the Islamic Revolution. Iran's new fighter jet doesn't look like any we've ever seen before.
n the previous days, the Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi had said, “The aircraft will be different from the other fighter jets Iran has already made. Base on the first photographs released by the FARS News Agency, the new stealthy jet has a really peculiar design. It features hard edges and those distinctive edges and angle of the U.S. F-22 and the twin tail shape much similar to that of the F-35 Lightning II. It looks like this pilot is in a miniature plane. After more watch the Q-313 in the air.

This Backpack Lets You Climb Up Any Wall

Gear  |  Military
Utah State University "Ascending Aggies" team recently won first prize out of 33 teams in the Air Force's contest to get four soldiers over a very tall wall. They developed what they call a PVAC, or Personal Vacuum Assisted Climber and it works just as you’d imagine: a loud-as-hell vacuum strapped to your back connects to two suction cups and lets you climb pretty much anything, even if the surface wouldn’t have been so good for regular suctions cups

Awesome! Why shoot one bullet when you can shoot TWO bullets? This is the AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol by Arsenal Fireams. It is just like a regular pistol, but shoot two bullets at once! Check out more watch the video of it in action!
"The gun can be handled by any shooter able to shoot with a .45 Acp and it is not only very pleasing, but very accurate and great fun. The AF2011-A1 holds amazing and surprising target performance for the shooter: in fact, it will group all the 8 double .45 caliber rounds (16 bullets) held in the duplex, single columns magazines, in a target of the size of an orange at 15 yards and of a water melon at 25. The stopping power of the AF2011-A1 is tremendous: 2 bullets for a total of 460 Grains weight impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) will knock down a bull, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds."

The AW609 tiltrotor aircraft from Agustawestland combines the benefits of a helicopter with the benefits of a fixed wing aircraft.  Unlike the V-22, the AW609 tiltrotor is aimed at private, commercial, and government markets.
"The AugustaWestland AW609 is currently undergoing flight testing, with the goal of getting its FAA certification by 2016, allowing you to buy one. Unlike the V-22, the AW609 is designed with comfort in mind, featuring a pressurized cabin that can hold six VIPs in style. It can land anywhere a helicopter can land, but it also has a top speed of about 300 mph and a range of over 800 miles, making it much more versatile than a helicopter would be."

Watch Norwegian NSM cruise missile punch through a ship

Gear  |  Military
The video shows the NSM getting launched from a land base, flying over an island, and then acquiring and striking a ship. Check out the video.
"Unlike most anti-ship missiles, the NSM uses an IR detector instead of radar, ensuring that it won't provide any detectable warning signals to its targets. GPS plus an in-flight data link let the missile make precise maneuvers and shift targets on the fly, and it also has "advanced terminal maneuvers," which means that it pulls some funky moves just before impact to keep from getting shot down at close range"

'Blackswift' hypersonic unmanned aircraft

Gear  |  Military


Just see from the image, this aircraft looks awesome! In 2007, DARPA committed to funding the development of a prototype unmanned aircraft called "Blackswift" that would be able to take off from a runway unassisted and be anywhere in the world within a few hours. Two years later, Blackswift was dead, a victim of budget cuts and skeptical lawmakers. Now the Blackswift is back.
"Technically, this new development project being worked on by the U.S. Air Force won't be Blackswift: it'll be "the son of Blackswift," whatever that means. The original idea behind the Falcon hypersonic vehicle program (of which Blackswift was a part) was to create an aircraft that could fly fast enough to make it anywhere it needed to be in an hour or two, a valuable capability for either a reconnaissance aircraft or a bomber. " Check out the video of the original Falcon/Blackswift aircraft.

Pneumatically-Powered Grappling Hook Gun

Launch a grappling hook 100 feet up using a gigantic pneumatic launcher.
Battelle
's Tactical Air Initiated Launch System can fire a titanium grappling hook attached to a Kevlar line up to 100 feet high and 60 feet away. That means you could be standing across the street from your neighbor's tenth-floor apartment. It uses compressed air, so there's none of that noise you'd get with an explosive gunpowder-driven grappling hook gun.
