Japan has created a bizarre new military vehicle. But do you really think it would work?
This military vehicle looks like a descendant of the character Cousin Itt from the "Adams Family." Japan appears to have created a military vehicle covered in forage to make, essentially, a drivable bush.
Take a look at Japan's new military vehicle for yourself; do you think it will work?
Conceptually, the driving bush makes sense from a coverage standpoint, but the vehicle still seems to be plenty noisy. So stealth might be out of the equation when driving the bush vehicle.
After a little research, it appears that not much is known about the bush mobile. The only thing we do know is based off what is seen in the video. I wonder if this vehicle was mass produced, or if it's simply a prototype. It looks like a mobile ghillie suit, no?
The vehicle would blend in under the right circumstances as long as the soldiers didn't peek over the sides, but there are many questions still surrounding the vehicle.
I wonder what they will think of next?
