MBTS "Cayman" - Belarusian armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle. It developed in 2015 under the leadership of the factory - Olga Petrova. Served as the basis for the development of the Soviet car BRDM-2 and BTR-60. The resulting car was designated as MBTS - "mobile armored vehicle."

TTX
Crew - 6 people
Massa - 7 tons
Cruising - 1000 km (highway)
Maximum speed - 110 km / h (on the highway),
wheel formula - 4x4

as weapons selectively can be installed on overhead gun (PKTM) or mounted grenade launchers.

Sufficiently precise information about the "Cayman" is currently not possible to rework the car goes in the next couple of years, we see it a little bit different

Invisible Indian Tank!

Surprising but true, in near future Indian Tanks, IFV, APC etc are going to be totally invisible to the enemy!

The Indian Army has sought a camouflage system to make its armoured fighting vehicles apparent invisible to all kinds of existing sensors. The army wants a system through "Electronic Camouflage" which will blend the vehicle in its surrounding. This will enable the vehicle to change the livery of the tank with the changing background. In another ambitious option, the army has suggested for development of ‘Quantum Stealth’, a new revolutionary system being developed by a Canadian company, where a special new kind of composition would make the light waves around the target bending thus making invisible to naked eye, blocking infrared thus invisible to Night Vision and stopping the flux of thermal signatures and even the shadow of the vehicle. The modern sensors can locate armoured vehicles mainly through their heat and radar signature . But the new project will change the future of armoured warfare.

In pic , PT-16, brand new MBT from Poland with reduced radar and infrared signature , apparently making this almost invisible.

Such kinds of camo has already been implemented an eg would be multi spec camo. And also digi cam has been used by the indian army tanks for a long time now.

PS: If it bends light then why restrict or implement it on tanks(big darn machines which would still leave a trail) and not on the infantry???

The article is talking about metamaterials though. Not sure about the relevance of multi-spec camo or "digi" camo on IA tanks to this topic.

This kind of stuff (metamaterial camo) will be made to work on warships long before it gets to land vehicles, and its use on infantry is, IMHO, not effectively possible.

thanks for the clarification it didn't quite get what the article was implying.

would love to see invisible cloaks though:sad:

Armored vehicle SPM-3 / MIC-3924 / "The Bear" is the Russian equivalent of MRAP-type vehicles.
