The element of surprise is the biggest advantage any army can have in war. And it’s hard to develop a bigger surprise than a 35-tons, 7-meters long, 3.8-meters wide, and 2.8-meters high invisible monster. Meet Poland’s PL-01 tank.
The PL-01 tank is a concept from Poland Defence Holdings in cooperation with Polish companies and British conglomerate BAE Systems. Comprised of a chassis with an unmanned turret that has an autoloading 105 mm or 120 mm caliber cannon, the PL-01 is intended to act as a fire support combat vehicle. An array of hexagonal Peltier plates on the surface can be heated and cooled to project a desired image, such as the background and or a separate object, making the tank invisible. It’s scheduled to go in production in 2018, with a projected debut date in 2022. Enemies of Poland, beware.
