Russia Inflates Military With Blow-up Weapons
Posted on October 21st, 2010 in Russia | No Comments » |
The Russian military has come up with a very clever method of deceiving the enemy while saving billions of dollars at the same time. Their latest war technology is inflatable decoys that can be easy to transport and quick to deploy.
These decoys look just like the real ones especially if they are being viewed from mid-air. They are extremely light weight and are easy to deploy. Their state-of-the-art air pump system can fully pumps up a towering S-300 anti-aircraft missile launcher in less than 3 minutes.

The scariest part is that inflatable decoys are made using a special material that tricks enemy radar and thermal imaging into thinking they are the real thing. The outer layer of the equipment is coated with a thin layer of metal and install a heating system so that they would appear to have a warm engine when viewed through thermal imaging air-crafts.
Let’s just hope that the bad guys don’t get their hands on these.
