....how excited would you be if our generals said....hey we are going to use horses on the front lines now....but don't worry they will be horses with "lasers"!!!


Absolutely beautiful !

I'm going to a rock concert tonight : Neal Young and Lazerhorse. Too funny.

I think this tech began in the Napoleanic wars, but- if I'm wrong about that... then American Civil War at the latest. Doesn't mean the concept is invalid. Different generation of telescope installed is all.

They should build thousands of them, and paint black and white stripes on them ( to avoid friendly fire ) and call them EBB2A... Enhanced Barrage Balloon, version 2a.

Wish they filled them with hydrogen like the good 'ol days, man what a show !


LOL...Lazerhorse....that is awesome!!

thanks

LOL.....I needed a good laugh today. That reminded me of the movie "SO I married an ax murderer." Where they said "the piper is down, I repeat....the piper is down!"

too funny

thanks

We use these same white "Blimps" at all of our FODs in Afghanistan. I wish I had taken a photo to share, but they are so common it would be like taking a pic of a "T" wall.

The Air Force Times had an article about them being used in East Coast cities.
