Heh, I guess someone was right when they wrote in a BF2142 review that it should be titled BF2042 judging by the tech in the game.

The MH60's existed quite some time before they were used on the raid on Bin Laden.

Interesting, although the documentary "Bin Laden Shoot to Kill" said the helicopter was designed and built specifically for the mission but I do think its a lot more believable that they had them sitting around for a mission like this. Its not like they haven't had this technology to prevent them from making it until now

But I think my initial easement of more stealth helicopters will be hitting the skies in the near future as there are many clear advantages for having them and the technology is being rapidly developed and integrated around the world now. Chances are China is already looking into developing a stealth helicopter.

Neat concept, but wouldn't it detract from your options regarding modular armor (ERA blocks, slat armor, etc.)?
If they happen to shoot at you I doubt those neat thermal plates are going to stop much.

Couldn't you just have ERA under the plates then?

Ye I would expect they would simply go over the top of any amour... Although it dose sort of conflict a bit with any possible external upgrades and also would mean cage armour wouldn't be usable too.

I'd say that the infra-red cloak would be more useful on something like a recon vehicle that would sit still and not want to be seen than a MBT that's often firing it main weapon defeating the purpose of the cloak. You could also use it to hide high value targets like AA sites from aerial reconnaissance. Most of the time such high value targets can't use most normal armour addons.

This cloak will work well with standard cameo as thermal sights strong point has been to over come such cameo. If the can be widely used it will change the way armies hide objects and vehicles, as having the right cameo will be important again (unlike now where some armies are reducing their use of woodland cameos to save money).
