After discussing of the oversized tank proposals, I found WEIRDER things on the site below. It contains info such as Battleship Tanks(Literally!), Automatic robot soldiers, Anti aircraft electro magnets, and all the things you would see in a 'Flash Gordon' movie

More Info:

Well actually, not all of those ideas are stupid to the point of funny.
The Walking Machine is now a reality:

There is something really creeping about how it moves. Looks like a headless four armed spider. Kind of felt sorry for it when the guy was trying to kick it over.

Welcome to the future of Naval Gun Systems.
Inert, non-explosive, Hyper Velocity Kinetic Energy weapon systems. This will be the future. (Strange it is just like a Cannon ball, Just a lot ****ing faster!)

How about Military Airlift? Howabout Derigable Airships? Fill them with He instead of H? What about with solar cells that recharge above the cloud base to keep Electric engines & batteries going? Unlimited endurance 5000 Tonnes plus Cargo lift speed 200Kts? This should be the future of strategic Airlift in the Oil limited future.
interestingly i spoke to an engineer recently who has built a prototype DA(Derigable Airship) with a Hovercraft lift system on the gondola allowing it to anchor itself to ground by reversing the system or hovering over the ground by having it running. If you have air dominance this is a safe way to move large amount of Mil stores into your forward areas. UAV DAs as Airbourne Early Warning would be superb low cost autonomous and always on station?

Your comments and opinions please.

These technologies are maturing fast.

From the OP's link The Mile Tower - those crazy Frenchies

On hearing the claim that a penny tossed from the top of the Empire State Building would kill a passerby on the ground, rumour has it that in the event of a German invasion squads of schoolboys with bags of centimes would be deployed on the tower to combat the Wehrmacht should the Maginot line fail to hold back the Boche.

they were developing directed energy anti projectile devices like the phalanx CIWS a few years ago, i'm not too sure on the status of them though, last i heard was israel had a working mobile one (as evidenced by the youtube video of it) but cancelled the project because it wasn't practical as it required 2 trucks one for the device and i assume power source and the other for a command unit or something along those lines

youtube video of the israeli Mobile Tactical High Energy Laser or MTHEL
