Dummy Weapons?
Want to put together your own fake army to fool all the dolts trolling Google Earth? Try getting in touch with Rusbal, a Moscow-based R&D company that produces inflatable, life-size replica of the usual implements of war, including big ass tanks, bomber jets and rocket launchers.

Used by the Russian Army to fool spy satellites taking aerial pictures of local areas, the blow-up contraptions are reportedly more realistic than older generations of dummy weapons, which were made from either rubber, plastic or plywood. Not only that, they irradiate warmth too (so heat-sensing drones should be easily fooled), along with radar and infra-red bands (just in case the enemy uses more tools than Google Earth, which they probably do).

In actual battle scenarios, fake military artillery serves to distract enemies, forcing them to use their available resources keeping tabs on dummy installations, instead of focusing on real combat units. According to reports, the army even sends in soldiers who pretend to operate and maintain the balloon equipment, so it looks like a real threat waiting in the wings (no, they don't create mannequin soldiers - too obvious).

But why blow-up balloons? They are lighter and more portable than other types of dummies, allowing the army to set up a fake camp within minutes (the fake missile launcher reportedly pumps up to full size in five minutes, the sham battle tank in four). Just like you can in your backyard. Can you imagine the shitstorm (along with the giggles) you can cause putting up fake tanks, battalion trucks and cannons right on your school's playground? Way-freaking-awesome.

sepertinya indonesia perlu bikin buat dipajang biar diliat satelit tetangga
kita juga punya...dummy laucher misile di kapal perang
kayanya udah pernah dibahas deh.....
lagian klo kita beli palingan tetangga udah tau karena kita telah disadap ....

kalau yang dummy diatas buat bodohin satelit mata mata, sedang kalau di mesin perang sungguhan untuk apa ya gunanya? bodohin teropong musuh?
Buset niat banget bikin balonya(s-300).
Waktu perang teluk ke 2(pembebasan kuwait), koalisi aja sempet kecele sama mainan ginian.
Iya, kita harus punya mainan ginian(seri s-300) biar orang yangka kita punya dan biar kita tetep bisa menghayal

pas perang ya buat bohongin musuh...
bisa bikin bingung pengambil keputusan musuh, menyamarkan pergerakan pasukan yang sebenarnya, umpan pertahanan udara, etc...
bikin dummy kilo sekalian ditaro dilaut kidul....
Ini namanya cerdik, murah meriah dan efektif, klo ga ketauan tpemoticon-Big Grin
