UK military scientists are planning to develop “invisible” tanks for the British Army to use on the battlefield within five years.

The armoured vehicles will use a e-camouflage technology, which projects images of the surrounding environment on the outside of the vehicle to blend into the landscape and evade attack.

BAE Scientists hope the new technology, developed as part of the future protected vehicle programme, will be available for the British Army fighting in southern Afghanistan and future conflicts.

The programme is based around seven different manned and unmanned military vehicles, which will be equipped with a wide range of lethal and non lethal weapons.

The prototype is expected to be ready within four years and an experimental operational capacity by 2013, according to the Telegraph.
