Quote of the Day - If I cannot smoke in heaven, then I shall not go.
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.
