      • Ha! Better yet not to place the camouflage on the real equipments. Then attacker would surely be tricked into thinking the real was rubber fakes!
        Does anyone wonder why the Russian is so accomplished at chess?

        • Chess isnt about faking. Theres no pokerface, look at games Karpov vs Kasparov, all emtions in their faces. Its about the better game.

        • This might work for the lowest levels of intelligence gathering. Anything more sophisticated than a camera or some bioculars will foil this plan. It may work against the Georgians and Chechens though. Most of the NATO militaries consider this a waste of resources.

          • Actually these mockups are made specifically to fool NATO forces. They are used in conjuction with devices made to imitate heat signatures of those vehicles. Everyone knows that NATO fights by trying to blast the enemy from 200km away, and the goal of these mockups is to make the US airforce waste its expensive bombs and rockets on cheap rubber toys ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • There are a lot of things that are made to complete a task or fufill a need. That doesn’t mean they actually do it. History is filled with many military inventions that look great on paper and were complete failures on the battlefield.

            • The astronauts had problems to write because the ink in ballpoint pens would not flow normally in gravity zero. The U.S. Government then spend millions to develop a pen which could be used by their astronauts. The russians used pencils.

              • BTW that was an acoounting trick that is often used to hide another expense. Just like the 6000 dollar toilet seats and the 400 dollar hammers. That is how this that are classified are paid for with out registering as a line item on a balance sheet. Nice story though

  1. From an airplane, they’d look real enough. They can even include a heater to match the IR signature of the real thing.

    But a cluster bomb of lawn darts will sort the fakes from the real vehicles.

      • I gues the NATO bombers did not use sophisticated IR scans when they blasted the ‘rebel’ vehicles in Lybia ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • A prime example of a battle with no clear deliniation of forces and shared equipment. However, who is to say that that wasn’t on purpose. There are so many Al Queda mixed in with the rebels, whos to say they weren’t taking care of another risk

  2. Nice immitations could work in long distance warfare…
    but… Tanks are very hot if you see them from above, (satellites) they disperge as well hot gasses and they leave tracks on the ground

    for the plane, other story but then you need a place were it is plausible ground to land on…

    and please change those shiny helmets they won’t help you in tactics unless you want to be a target
    greetings

    • I see you have not heard of maskirovka. You could get satellites to scan 17 million square kilometres of terrain, but they cant pinpoint 20,000 tanks or 20,000 APCs and IFVs! AND even if you did how are you going to get “a cluster bomb of lawn darts” to them?!!In case you dont know Russia has the second most powerful airforce in the world. What, were just going to let F-15s fly 500km into Russia to launch missiles!!!

      • Don’t you look at the other posts in this forum. The Russian air force is full of old men. The US Air Force is battle tested. Russia’s Air Force would be gone in a week. They don’t have the numbers, the doctrine, or the spare parts to keep enough planes in the air. Not to mention the F-22s are now active in multiple squadrons. Russia has nothing operational to counter those aircraft.

        • Oh really! Ever met any real RuAF personnel yourself. Probably not. But I have, and apart from the senior officers and above, all are below 30 years. As for numbers, the RuAF has around 2800 aircraft. As for the F-22’s, you were similarly proud and bragging about the F-117s, one of which was shot down by a Russian-made missile system. And as far as i know we have plenty of anti-aircraft missiles. ๐Ÿ˜›

          • So your whole air superiority plan is Anti Aircraft missiles? That is the best you have. The US has over 1000 aircraft on carriers alone. Not to mention that the US has had the money to feed and train them constatntly. Wow one F-117 may have been shot down. Out of the tens of thousands of sorties flown, you got one. I’ll take those numbers any day of the week. Fact is the Russian airforce is on life support. There are a few airforces that can mount the numbers the US has (china is an example) There are a few airforces that have the quality planes and pilots (U.K. Germany, France, Isreal). Those sames examples might be able to keep all their planes in the air for a prolonged campaign. However, no air force but the USAF has all those factors. Thus, the Russian Air Force in a head to head battle is doomed.

            • Do you know you have a lot in common with a certain Austrian?!! He was similarly arrogant about his own might and that he could own the Russians. It turned out that he committed suicide in April 1945, when those same Russians surrounded him after bringing his “invincible” military crashing down.
