Electric Tanks Smoke 'Em

Sorry I missed you yesterday. I'll have to blame it on El Squid Roe, and the Sea Queen restaurant. I got to enjoying Cabo, my vacation and a good Clancy novel. Plus there were a few Cohibas.

As you can see, I was a little busy.

But, that doesn't excuse some news coverage. Here's a goodie. It's the Army. You know, the guys burning 750,000 gallons of fuel per day in Iraq.

So, when you burn that much money, what can you do about it?

How about a Hybrid-electric tank that gets 600 miles to the charge? Or, you could go with the Hybrid-Electric Light Armored Vehicle that also has a CAT diesel as backup just in case the lights go out.

What will they think of next? They already did.

The tank-like vehicle puts out a whopping 350 kilowatts of electricity while idling. It successfully powered a control tower and runway for two hours in a recent demonstration an the Alaskan military base, Elmendorf Air Force Base.

Sounds like it worked really well, and we can expect to see electric hybrid tanks in about four to five years. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

P.S. Thanks to Cabo Clipper Internet & Computers for providing a computer for this post. Check with Paul Sanchez. He'll hook you up. He's Good People.
