Easy to transport and even easier to deploy, the Shape military is sure looking good. But get too close and you'll see its little secret: it's inflatable.
The Shape military has been investing in inflatable decoys vastly cheaper than actual military equipment, blow-up plastics that offer the illusion of anything ranging from pretend tanks to complete radio stations
The weapons deceptively start as large plastic sheets, shipped in a black duffel bag. With the assistance of little other than an air pump, a tank can take form in a matter of seconds, ready to roll out -- with a push from a few soldiers, of course.
These decoys lack any actual fire-power defense, of course, though they are made of special material that tricks enemy radar and thermal imaging into thinking they are real. Shape company, makes inflatable S-300 missiles, T-80 and T-72 tanks, and Su-27 and F-10 fighter jets -- all life-size and, Shape says, extremely difficult to distinguish from the real thing when viewed by radar or satellite
Shape, which makes the backlight and guidance vehicle shown above, says the life-size air models can be used to create entire fake military bases and positions of forces.
The inflatable weapons are stitched at a former hot-air balloon factory, where sewers have shown great enthusiasm for their workload.
