This tank can be disguised itself as a car

A company from Poland was launches PL-01, a stealth tank that can outwit the enemy with the ability to "replace" the images displayed based on infrared sensor through beam its smart layers.

At a time when many producers tanks world to dwell on the power of the engine and coating of the brunt of enemy missiles and arsenal and camouflage paint and shape-based design, Polish companies have stepped forward in relative terms. Among them it is the M1A1/2 Abrams and German Leopard 2A4/2A5
The idea of the PL-01 is to try and eliminate the infrared, radar and visual signature of the traditional tank. (Picture from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/)
The prototype tanks which made by Obrum and BAE Systems, the PL0-01, can accommodate three crews, weighing 35 tons. These tanks are covered with netting specially developed so that it can make itself look like a car with only changing the temperature of the smart coating material.

PL-01's debut premiered at the International Defence Industry Exhibition in Kielce, Poland, on September 2, 2013. It is expected that the finished prototype was built in the year of 2016 and entered mass production in 2018.

The key to the tank stealth ability on applying hexagonal plates which can be set to control the temperature of the tank. If they adjust the level of the environment, the tank effectively dissipate heat from the sensor is used to detect vehicles at the time of the war. By adjusting the sensor, these vehicles could even disguised as a car. Tank has seven meter long with three crews and is expected to be put into use in 2018.

This tank can also be "fused" with the environment. It is, as quoted by the Daily Mail, made possible thanks to the infrared sensor-sendor small tanks installed around the detected enemy, who then presents a similar pattern honeycomb coat most fitting with the data collected from the infrared sensors. It will builds spieler images perfectly on the tank. The layers can also manipulate the temperature, creating one screen and allows the crew to control it exactly as he should have seen.
The tank has a plethora of weapons, from a traditional gun turret to missiles launched fro its sides. (Picture from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/)
This system allows the tank was wearing an active infrared camouflage, as well as the tigers that could enable their infrared organ to recognize an object in the forest, or make tank similar a car in urban areas.
PL-01 is also able to reduce their infrared trail by cooling and exhaust temperature spread of smoke and diesel engine-powered 940 HP it. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILY MAIL]
