    AFAIK they have metal suspended in the material so it shows up on radar as a flat metal surface, so it should fool radar.

    The Russians are the real masters at this sort of thing and include gas powered burners positioned where the engines should be so the IR signature makes it look real too... showing heat from the engine area...

    Patria AMV with a BMP-3

    Post  d_taddei2 on Fri Apr 10, 2015 2:30 am

    just for peoples info, here is a pic of a Patria AMV with a BMP-3, these Patria have had the length extended by 0.4m to accomodate the BMP-3 anre are in use with UAE who also use the BMP-3 AFV, i think this is a pretty good idea, there AFV's and Wheeled APC's both using the same calibre's.

    Post  VeeTee on Sat Apr 25, 2015 4:49 pm

    Sorry if this is here already, I didn't spot it with my tired eyes at least..

    From the video description:
    Battery of Finnish Army field artillery cannons model 130 K 54 fire into the target area where the cameras are waiting. Filmed during Army firing exercise in Rovajärvi, Lapland.

    Thank you for the clip. It's actually quite scary - at first everything is silent, and then a mini portal to hell opens directly to your face.
    I've never been under artillery fire (hopefully never will be), but after watching several videos from Donbas area, I had an impression you could actually hear an incoming round - at least, the mortar shells. And here there's no indication that several kilos of HE will hit your area in a second or two.


    By the way, here's a somewhat similar video of how it feels to be at the receiving end of a MG-42.

    (I think) most artillery rounds are supersonic, so it's usually game over without warning. The ones that miss you you might hear - after they've passed you. Mortar rounds make more sound in the air, I think, but only for a split second before the boom. When facing artillery, you need to be properly dug in or constantly on the move. I have actually witnessed a mortar target area during firing from pretty far away, but I don't remember hearing any sound.

    That MG video was pretty cool, almost made me want to hit the ground and take cover. Almost shouted at the guy when he started demonstrating changing the barrel, too. I thought it was after the firing, so it would be scorching hot Laughing

    To be honest, virtually all CAS aircraft should have MAWS as a standard suite, IMO. It's a small expense compared to losing an entire aircraft, and the Apache is a excellent aircraft but one of it's major flaws was the lack of defensive measures implemented in it's design (especially the non-existence of BP glass).
