most

every country on the map like in 2018 when the president of venezuela narrowly survived an attack by two drones carrying explosives in an apparent assassination attempt drone gun tactical was designed to help eliminate that threat using radio frequency jamming to disrupt operator links it can drop drones over a mile and a half away all an operator needs to do is maintain a line of sight and squeeze the trigger the frequencies immediately block the video signal of the drone and force it to land or return to its starting point the guns have been used during high profile events such as 2019 south asia games here they took down seven commercial drones four of which were suspiciously lining the flight path of the philippines president's helicopter without incident i'd say this plan crashed and burned but thanks to the drone gun it just landed safely and failed brilliant bazooka now not all anti-drone weapons rely on frequency jammers the skywall 100 designed by british company openworks is another drone defense solution although this one gets more physical with the drones at hand the shoulder mounted compressed gas gun weighs in at roughly 22 pounds but this bazooka ain't packing batteries once the smart scope has locked onto the target's range and the trigger is squeezed it launches a projectile carrying a net this wraps around the drone and prevents its blades from working as it drops out of the sky a tiny parachute attached to the net deploys ensuring the drones won't plummet to the ground which would be a big problem in crowded areas unlike the drone gun this means the drone doesn't have a chance to return to its starting point and can be taken away for forensic investigation the skywall 100 can also be rapidly reloaded meaning a single operator can take down multiple targets in a matter of minutes no wonder they call it a sky wall irl aimbot out in the field military snipers are often faced with some of the most difficult working conditions if it's windy dusty or if their target just won't stay still it can be impossible to get a good shot but in 2014 the united states defense advanced research projects agency or darpa for short presented snipers with a game changer self-guided sniper bullets the extreme accuracy tasked ordinance program aka x-acto uses specially designed ammunition with a real-time optical guidance system this directs the bullet to the target by compensating for most of the conditional elements like wind and poor visibility it even works if the user barely has any experience with a sniper rifle you can see that even when the rifle user is untrained the 50 caliber bullet still hits the target even when it moves intriguingly the test program ended in 2015 and any further developments of the tech have been kept under wraps but in 2016 russia came forward with its own version of the smart bullet claiming it could hit targets more than six miles away and here was me thinking aimbots only existed in video games tank boat you can usually look at a vehicle and guess pretty accurately what it does but that might be tricky for this thing is it a tank is it a boat a nuclear-powered sand castle destroyer well it's actually the u.s marine corps ultra-heavy lift amphibious connector a prototype amphibious vehicle designed to dock almost anywhere although this is just a half scale prototype the final vehicle is projected to be 84 feet long 34 feet high and will be able to carry up to 190 tons of cargo or three main battle tanks the tracks are made of captured air foam blocks which extend like flippers to propel the craft through the water at a top speed of 20 knots or roughly 23 miles per hour when this behemoth hits the beach the foam flattens transforming into tracks like those on a tank or a bulldozer only softer this means it won't just be capable of hitting the beach it'll also be able to maneuver inland over difficult terrain such as marshes mud and will even be able to conquer obstacles 10 feet high while this incredible concept was unveiled in 2014 there's been no word on its development since maybe they're making a stealth version of this thing although seeing how bizarre it looks i don't think there's any way this thing could drive or swim under the radar the mine sweeper tanks are arguably the most essential battlefield vehicles when it comes to smashing through enemy lines and allowing infantry to advance but one of their little-known cousin vehicles the m1150 assault breacher is just as important this heavily armored 65 ton combat vehicle is based on the m1 abrams tank chassis but unlike a regular tank this vehicle is equipped with a mine plow and line charges these are features specially designed to help rid paths and roads of hidden bombs and landmines so that troops and vehicles can pass through safely to do this first the m1150 uses a line charge these are rockets that carry a string of explosives up to 500 feet forward which are then detonated discharging any mines hidden in the ground then the vehicle moves forward with the 15 foot long mine plow this lifts and clears any remaining explosives out of the ground pushing them out to the side and away from the vehicles about to come through the ski arms reaching out of the front guide different sections of the plow ensuring it's at a constant depth of 14 inches so as not to shunt too deeply into the terrain and get the vehicle stuck with so much specialized equipment each of these vehicles costs a staggering 3.7 million dollars well i'm sure the military would rather see a sky-high price over a sky-high battalion tireless tires there's nothing worse than getting a flat tire but could you imagine getting a flat in the middle of an active war zone like changing a tire wasn't hard enough without bullets and shrapnel whipping past your head thankfully many military vehicles around the world use run flat tires pneumatic tires that have a solid donut-like insert in the middle this means if the outer tube is punctured the tire won't go flat or need to be replaced immediately that's pretty ingenious but the vehicle can only travel up to 60 or so miles at reduced speed before the run flat wears down so while it's good it's not perfect however the us military has something in the works that'll do away with tire air pressure entirely say hello to the non-pneumatic tire designed by the aptly named resilient

technologies

using a polymeric web in a honeycomb structure between the tread band and the rim the wheel conforms around objects similar to an air filled tire while being completely puncture resistant this means vehicles sporting them can handle shrapnel rough conditions and difficult terrain without the fear of getting a flat and being left stranded the pentagon released the potential of this technology back in 2008 and granted resilient 18 million dollars in funding in the hopes they'd create a tire the us military could use but it hasn't been a quick or smooth ride after more than 12 years of testing resilience tire is still in the prototype phase but they're moving in the right direction to bring these wheels to the us military and mass man future military vehicles are going to look a whole lot cooler corner copia in urban combat there's nothing riskier than sticking your head out from a corner like over a wall or around a corner to try and see where your enemies are if only there was a way to shoot around corners like this well thanks to an innovative lieutenant colonel from the israeli defense forces now there is this is the corner shot it's a mechanism that mounts a semi-automatic pistol or grenade launcher at the front which remotely links to a trigger on the back end this allows the front section to rotate up to 60 degrees left and right around corners while a digital camera feeds to the user a view of what lies around the bend this means users can fire the weapon and hit a target up to 650 feet away all from the safety of complete cover but it's not the only one of its kind in 2015 zen

technologies

unveiled the shoot edge which was funded by india's defense research and development organization it works on the same premise as the corner shot but the design allows the front to swivel up to 65 degrees in both directions both models provide a device that special forces can use in urban combat environments such as hostage situations without putting themselves in unnecessary danger i don't envy the bad guys who find themselves around the corner from soldiers wielding this thing the phaser as chaotic as war can be you might be surprised to learn that it actually has a few rules back in 1995 the united nations issued a protocol banning the use of laser weapons designed to permanently blind or diminish someone's sight after that most un countries decided to drop research into laser blinding weapon technology but not the us back in 2006 at kirkland air force base the u.s department of defense developed this prototype weapon which looks like something straight out of star trek and considering it's called the personal halting and simulation response or phaser for short it sounds like it too it's a non-lethal laser dazzler which uses both a low intensity laser and a two wavelength laser to temporarily disorient and blind a target it just about skirts the un's ruling on laser weapons although since it was developed in 2006 it hasn't become standard issue however in 2021 the us navy did announce its plans to develop a compact transportable high-energy laser weapon system it's not going to be used on humans though it'll be designed to tackle drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles considering they're pumping a huge 18.7 million dollars into this development i wonder what they're going to look like will they be rifle-sized phasers or weapons small enough to fit in your pocket what do you think let me know down in the comments the fire scout now i'm no aerospace engineer but if you ask me whether a helicopter needs a windshield the pilot could see through i'd say yes which is why watching this thing take off from a moving platform with its windscreen blacked out seems absolutely

insane

don't worry though the pilot can see just fine because he's not actually inside the aircraft this is the northrop grumman mq8 firescout series a completely unmanned helicopter designed to provide reconnaissance situational awareness aerial fire support and precision targeting for ground air and ski forces able to stay in the air for up to 12 hours with a maximum payload capacity of some 700 pounds it's like a larger and more capable drone along with an autonomous flight control system the converted copter has an integrated series of advanced sensors which generate full motion video in both day and low light conditions not only that but in 2021 they were adapted to deploy ultrasonic sono buoys into the sea these little devices use sound energy to detect enemy ships submarines and even mines in the water before sending the data back to the fire scout which is then relayed to a manned unit this method keeps the pilots and the crew of nearby ships out of harm's way while providing detailed developments in waters up to 100 miles away man is there anything this machine can't do canine vision while militaries around the world rely heavily on intimidating tech to get the edge on the enemy many also use something furrier service dogs have been used in military operations all over the world since the late 19th century with jobs ranging from messengers explosive detection and attack forces and as military tech for humans has evolved it has for the dogs as well thanks to the french innovation of the k9 vision system also known as rex specs these are goggles with an attached collar that contain a specially designed canine camera system the camera is located at the top of the goggles which captures everything the dog sees before transmitting the footage wirelessly to a nearby handler this allows units to assess a situation before sending their soldiers in while able to keep constant tabs on their faithful hounds with the mask weighing just 140 grams and the collar 200 grams the entire set is so light it doesn't impair the dog's performance the device is also waterproof the camera has infrared abilities and the goggles include a mounted torch it even has a radio speaker system to deliver commands to the dog and potentially any nearby targets if i had access to one of these i'd definitely pretend the dog could talk get on the ground keep your hands where i can see them all right now give me a treat human the ghost tank there's something about adding ghost to a name that makes things sound all the more terrifying ghost pepper ghost light ghost tank hang on ghost tank that can't be real right well over in the swedish military it very much is the cv90120t ghost is a battle tank that uses a unique camouflage method to get the drop on its opponents the base cv90120 tank was redesigned back in the 1990s when engineers attempted to create a lightweight fire support vehicle with the firepower of a main battle tank this meant the cv90120 weighed in at just 21 tons with a 120 millimeter gun for contrast most modern tanks with guns that size weigh between 40 and 60 tons they stripped everything from it including its thick armor so bae systems came up with an ingenious prototype protection to keep the tank safe without adding weight adaptive a thermal camouflage system individual modules honeycomb the flanks of the tank which are made of elements that can be cooled or heated up very quickly as well as controlled individually via electronic programming this allows different patterns to be created disguising the tank's heat signature from the enemy like here where it happens to be the shape of an ordinary car it can imitate other shapes as well like that of a truck or even a moose man if sweden ever becomes a battleground invading forces are going to think this country has a lot of armored moves the mothercraft when it comes to military vehicles of the superior size mother russia doesn't mess around which is proven by the existence of the gigantic zuber class hovercraft even though they were built in the soviet union at the end of the cold war just as the soviet union collapsed in 1991 these brilliant behemoths have stood the test of time and are still used by the russian greek and chinese navy forces today the amphibious vehicle uses air cushion technology powered by five gas turbine engines which each generate a whopping 12 100 horsepower these make it capable of skirting over 300 miles of waves at a top speed of 63 miles per hour the air cushion also allows the zuber to glide over solid ground so it can carry its payload right up to the shore although at 187 feet long and 84 feet wide this beast doesn't land on the shore so much as engulf it with a normal load the craft weighs in at 415 tons and can carry up to 10 armored personnel carriers 3 main battle tanks 360 marines or some incredible combination of all three if that's a normal load imagine what a heavy load looks like i reckon this thing could drag godzilla back out to sea not only that but russia has two of these incredible craft each sporting two surface-to-air missiles gatling guns and rocket launchers man if i were godzilla i'd just stay at the bottom of the ocean forever mega mat deployment as amazing as many military land vehicles are a lot of them wouldn't be much without a road and it's here that the german military's falstra bengrat or fsg for short rolls in translated this literally means folding road device which is a pretty perfect description of its job the 8x8 vehicle carries a mat made of tessellated aluminum plates which weigh more than nine tons altogether using a folding line and pulley system the mat is laid out over difficult terrain like mud or bog it takes the fsg around 10 minutes to lay almost 165 feet of the mat which at almost 14 feet wide can accommodate even the girthiest of machines being made of aluminum the mat is durable enough to support vehicles weighing up to 70 tons while lightweight enough to be reeled back into the truck mechanically in almost no time it's so versatile it can even be laid into water up to four feet deep allowing boats to unload vehicles on shores without fear of them getting stuck in the mud now that's how you roll out the welcome mat taking to the skies in 2020 the u.s air force made a shocking claim by 2023 it was going to start fielding the use of flying cars well they didn't call them flying cars they called them orbs organic resupply buses this specifically referred to joby aviation's s-4 a hybrid vehicle combining a car-like chassis with six rotors which can carry up to five people with vertical takeoff and landing capabilities once it's in the air it can travel at a top speed of 200 miles per hour with a 150 mile range but here's the best part it's apparently 100 times quieter than a helicopter and the military can't wait to get their hands on them because they have huge potential for missions involving medical evacuation firefighting disaster response and humanitarian relief operations but this isn't the only flying car on the us military's radar because they have such incredible military potential the us has been funding research into a wide variety of models to fit different missions these include smaller one-man vehicles like the lyft aircraft hexa thanks to the five floats at its base and 18 independent electric motors and propellers on top this flying pod can vertically take off from the water as well as land perfect for search and rescue missions but the u.s military has also looked into some more bizarre designs such as conceptual humvee copters that can conduct night raids or whisk injured soldiers away from the battlefield that might be the most american thing i've ever seen looks like the sky really is the limit for this military endeavor the flying jeep if the idea of flying humvees blew your mind then you're gonna love this next vehicle the amazingly named black knight transformer from advanced tactics anyone else think it sounds like christopher nolan and michael bay made a movie together in development since 2010 this is a proof-of-concept vehicle for a multi-purpose hybrid car slash aircraft it combines eight powerful engines with rotors providing this four thousand four hundred pound chassis with enough thrust to fly up to ten thousand feet in the air but it's not just good in the sky according to its specifications as a land vehicle it'll also be able to hit a top speed of 70 miles per hour but why would the u.s military fund research for a vehicle that's bulky yet weirdly versatile like this well there are a few reasons for a start at 31 feet long and 19 feet wide you'd have plenty of room inside so it'd be perfect for cargo drops in hard to reach areas and with all that space it could also perform easy casualty evacuations in areas of active warfare by landing in a safe zone away from enemy fire and then driving to the evac site the injured soldier doesn't have to be carried reducing danger to other soldiers it's a very neat prototype but it's one that's currently cost two million dollars to build man i dread to think how much the finished version will eventually cost human 2.0 a lot of us would give just about anything to own an ironman suit while we're light years away from anything as technologically sophisticated as that the military does have access to the next best thing this is the guardian xo a full-body battery-powered exoskeleton which augments the operator's strength with a maximum payload of 200 pounds an operator wearing this incredibly cool power suit can lift 100 pounds with a single hand this kind of power assist can help ensure soldiers aren't injured doing mundane tasks and can save their strength for duties that really matter but while the guardian xo looks pretty snazzy it wasn't always this sleek sarcos the company behind guardian xo worked under defense contractor raytheon over 10 years ago producing the xos exoskeleton suit like the guardian this early suit also augmented the wearer's lift capacity to lift up to 200 pounds and could even punch through three inches of wood it achieved this by using an array of sensors to collect data through the exoskeleton the sensors fed data into a computer which determined how the suit should move then those instructions were sent to a series of valves that controlled the flow of hydraulic fluid in the joints the fluid moved a series of cylinder actuators which then moved cables attached to them like tendons pulling on the robotic limbs the main drawback was that it needed to be attached to a main power source in order to work so it had limited applications in busy environments still being able to do endless push-ups with this thing on has to count for something right before i go i want to say thank you to our sponsor conflict of nations for making this video possible if you want to help support the channel be sure to hit
