The tank is a car for destruction, the car for murder. Nevertheless, even this fighting vehicle can be done with loving care. With love to the nature, to environment. The hybrid tank from BAE Systems which is developed for Army of the United States of America also will be such.
The army of the USA tries to keep up to date. Such concepts as “power efficiency”, “economy”, “ecology” suddenly are not become alien to it. That is why shortly she is going to add to the arsenal of hybrid cars and the hybrid tank. Here about the last the story also will go today.
It is necessary to tell, as earlier the American military department tried to make experiments with “green” technologies. For example, solar panels that those had possibility directly on the move were built in backpacks of soldiers, even in lifeless desert to charge portable radio sets and other electronic devices.
Having received within the limits of these experiments positive results, the American military have decided to make harmless and the fighting vehicles. The matter is that now on one soldier in Army of the USA 22 litres of fuel leave in day on the average. And it is huge resources if to take into account scales of all military department. So, from mindless consumerism, it is necessary to refuse.
For example, equipping the U.S. military machine “green” engines. The company BAE Systems, which develops a hybrid for the U.S. Army tank with a working title of Hybrid Electric Drive, states that it will consume twenty percent fewer resources than the pure diesel “cousins.” And it will make it more resilient, will allow him to stay longer in service.
Moreover, the validity of such a tank can be extended even if you install solar panels on it. This possibility is also investigated by BAE Systems.
