Now you See Me, Now you Don’t

As a former Army Tanker with the 1st Battalion 64th Armor Desert Rogues, this article in Paint Square News caught my eye. Researchers at the University of Texas have developed a coating for Army tanks that mimics the “mirage effect” often seen in deserts.

This could greatly benefit our Armed Forces, especially in desert conditions. And of course, I believe that anything that helps make a tank harder to find for our enemies is a good thing. I hope that this technology continues to be developed and, of course, is only available to the U.S. and our allies.
