Quote from: Solar on August 03, 2018, 03:31:25 AMI'm wondering why we took so long to apply it to tanks.https://maritime.org/doc/cagun/part2.htm
Quote from: walkstall on August 03, 2018, 03:49:22 AMCould be added weight and room needed in the tanks.
Quote from: walkstall on August 03, 2018, 01:30:19 AMA long read....snip~Astonishingly futuristic new tech creates a seemingly invisible, impenetrable, protective bubble around military armored vehicles making enemy attempts to fire at U.S. tanks pretty pointless – those rounds won't hit the tank, they'll explode mid-air.Think of it almost like making a tank smart enough to defend itself. With the upgrade, tanks automatically protect the crew inside and prevent enemy rounds from making contact with the armor.Within the blink of an eye, this remarkable technology detects the enemy fire, locates it and launches a response that destroys the threat at a safe distance from the vehicle.It is sort of like a tiny missile defense system used to protect countries– but one designed to ride along with armored vehicles.RPGs (Rocket Propelled Grenades) and even Anti-Tank Guided Missiles that can slay tanks are stopped mid-air, precisely intercepted and prevented from hitting the U.S. military tank.Most types of enemy fire will never reach a tank protected with this tech. It will change warfare forever.more @http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/08/02/force-field-technology-could-make-us-tanks-unstoppable.html
Quote from: Rotwang on August 03, 2018, 08:46:37 AMA Star Trek / Nikola Tesla "Force Field" is too esoteric for my aged brain.BUT .... I will concede if there was a tank with NO ARMOR, but tiny railguns, programmed with appropriate AI, that could neutralize any incoming projectiles at distance, that would effectively be the equivalent of a Force Field.In fact, I would be shocked if Russia, USA, and China were not working on this as we speak.If I can conceive it, it's already quite obvious.
Quote from: AndyJackson on August 24, 2018, 01:31:37 AMThe trick will be to avoid letting them just steal the tech from us ASAP, so that we can actually be the only one with it, until they actually create something on their own for a change.
