Invisible tank
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Invisible tank

I know some of the British newspapers are somewhat less then 'respectable" so I'm not sure how credible this is

If it is true just imagine the fun you could have at a modelling contest. just do the scenery and defy the judges to prove you're wrong Twisted Evil

PS don't know how useful it would be since you would still show up on thermal sights

Post subject: Re: Invisible tank

Actually invisible tanks have been around for years. The Germans first used them in WWII. Col Jarret arranged for several to be brought back to Aberdeen. Several have been on display for years Not all those 'empty' Pads are empty One has a Pz Vi on it. Another the PzKW IVi had one of it's tracks replaced with a track from a standard Pz IV and many folks thought it was a tack sitting by itself on one of the display pads. There are some American T series invisible tanks also. Unfortunately due to bad record keeping in the late 50s and through the 60s several have been lost and are believed to be sitting 'somewhere' on an Army base. It is thought that the T28 that showed up at Ft Belvoir was actually part of an invisibility paint test. It had been painted and used for tests and forgotten about. Eventually as the paint aged it lost it's properties and after heavy spring rains became visible.

Maybe I'll have to do a special 'invisible tanks' tour soon. Although very few folks have taken pictures of these very special tanks you will sometimes see them in the background of other shots taken at Aberdeen

Though not a tank, the Mighty Gav!nâ„¢ is apparently invisible, owing to the fact that no one has ever reported seeing one. Some 80,000+ M113 variants have been reported as eminently visible worldwide.
