The world’s top superpowers release more and more incredible military vehicles every year. We made an effort to compile the 50 most potent, ground-breaking, and futuristic tanks, planes, drones, and other types of military vehicles that we are aware of, even though we may not actually learn about their existence until long after they have been designed or deployed due to the fact that many of these projects are top-secret. It’s going to be a rocky trip, so buckle up!

BAE Systems Aadaptiv Technology

The BAE Systems AB-produced Adaptiv system’s high-tech active camouflage prevents adversary identification, particularly from infrared night vision technology. This is a grid of Pletier hexagonal plates that swiftly burn and freeze to provide the image the operator requires, such as the nearby forest or a passing car.
2011 saw the introduction of the Adaptiv infrared military camouflage technology, which BAE Systems compared to “a thermal TV screen.” With around 1000 hexagonal plates covering the sides of armoured metal vehicles like tanks and personal carriers.

Arquus Scarabee Armored Vehicle

Arquus is, surprisingly, a Volvo branch that unleashed this bulky machine during the 2019 Paris Air Show. Despite its heavy frame, the Scarabee is a light armored vehicle that has electric motors and ICE, set to roll out in 2021. The Scarabee was designed with stealth in mind, with its quiet and completely electric engine that can run for some days without needing to be charged. Units can now stay behind enemy lines for longer periods of time.

Owl-Eye Drone

Indeed, the Owl-Eye drone is a drone disguised as an owl, designed to fly past enemy detection, mistaken as a harmless bird. This Russian initiative is unique to the nation’s almost hilarious range of unique technological military developments. While you might think that well-trained soldiers with vision-enhancing technology would easily spot the difference between a robotic owl and a real one, you would be surprised at how effective the simulations have been for the Owl-Eye!

Army Rotocraft Technology

While you are reading this article, the U.S. Army is experimenting with a range of rotorcraft technology, putting prototypes to the test under explosive conditions. According to the aviation analysis team leader of the ARL-SLAD, Brian G. Smith. “1 purpose of this program is to generate some limited ballistic data that could reduce risk and/or encourage Future Vertical Lift designers to consider CTEF technology.” You might see this technology revolutionize military aviation as we know it.
