Stealth tanks to hit battlefield in 5 years

In what may transform the way future wars will be fought, British military scientists claim to be developing stealth tanks that would be ready for use on the battlefield within five years. A team at defence company BAE Systems says that the tanks will use a new technology known as “e-camouflage” which deploys an “electronic link” to render a vehicle “invisible”. Highly sophisticated electronic sensors attached to the tank’s hull will project images of surrounding environment back on to the outside of the vehicle enabling it to merge into the landscape and evade attack, say the scientists.

The electronic camouflage will enable the vehicle to blend into the surrounding countryside in much the same way that a squid uses link to help as a disguise. The Sunday Telegraph reported. Unlike conventional forms of camouflage, the images on the hull would change in concert with the changing environment always insuring that the vehicle remains disguised, say the scientists involved in the Future Protected Vehicle Project.

The scientists hope the new technology will be available to use with the British Army fighting in Afghanistan and in future conflicts. The programme is based around seven different military vehicles, both manned and unmanned. In fact, the unmanned vehicles or battlefield robots will be able to conduct dangerous missions in hostile areas, clear minefields and extract wounded troops under fire, say the scientists.

US has right to interfere in Pak affairs, says envoy

A diplomat, it is famously said, is able to hold his tongue in 10 languages. But truth is not a language, US ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has found to his peril. In remarks that have shaken US-Pakistan ties to its roots ahead of a major engagement aimed at arresting Islamabad’s descent into chaos, Munter reportedly rationalized and justified Washington’s involvement in the country’s economic policy because America, as the country’s largest aid giver, was paying the bills.

“Yes, we are demanding,” Munter was quoted as saying at an Islamabad think-tank on Friday. “We appear to be intrusive because we care, we are the largest donor. Our aid comes as outright grant of assistance which is different from loans.” The US gives Pakistan nearly $3 billion in annual assistance that keeps the country afloat, and it is poised to increase support in the coming weeks. The remarks, coming days ahead of a crucial visit to Islamabad of US vice-president Joe Biden, has upset the hosts.

“While US interference is an open secret and diplomatic cables recently released by WikiLeaks laid bare the extent of American involvement in Pakistan’s domestic affairs, Munter’s candid talk took many by surprise because they least expected the ambassador to be publicly saying so,” the Dawn newspaper reported. The News daily headlined its story “US has right to interfere in Pakistan.” In Washington, President Barack Obama has directed Biden to rush to Islamabad with assurance of greater support, including military, intelligence and economic assistance, even as Pakistan is seen to be slipping into an abyss.
