Marc Cieslak looks at new technology that could allow tanks to become invisible to infra-red sensors at first, then the naked eye in a few years' time.
the peacekeepers of the world. They should be parachuted in; whenever something breaks out, parachute [history's experienced warfaring cultures] in. They’ll go, "Look, we've done this before, we've done the killing. Hello! Take it from us, just chill out!" And then, they’d organize peace really quickly.

Will this technology make the tanks /APC/Jeeps silent as well?
A tank engine and running gear is a pretty noisy beast...heavy, and leaves tracks and causes vibration.
A simple microphone 'net' and a few sensitive seismic sensors placed in strategic positions will allow these 'invisible' vehicles to be seen and targeted by both manual and automated systems.
