Default Re: Invisible Tank

as already pointed out this would only be good for immobile tanks. Once the tank moves this technology just doesn't work.

Then there is the problem with nature. You have this cool thing which requires all these high tech cameras and projectors. Now what happens when you take this kind of equipment to some extreme places? Snow, sand, moisture etc don't go along with electronics too well. Both projectors and cameras need the lense to be clean in order to work effectively.

Might be more trouble than it's worth.

Well, they would show up with thermal, radar, all that stuff. And like in The Hobbit, there shadows would show up.
