Saab is proud to present the new Barracuda Adjustable Mobile Camouflage System (MCS), the world-leading camouflage designed for vehicles. One set of Adjustable MCS gives a choice of concealment patterns and so helps troops to remain undiscovered amongst different terrain.
The new Barracuda Adjustable Mobile Camouflage System is designed to operate in more than one environment. The platform integrated system is made out of panels and is known as a “uniform” because it is tailored to the vehicle. Some of the panels are adjustable and include other colours. A woodland system can quickly be more urban by changing light green to grey. A winter uniform can be adjusted to spring or deep foliage by changing some panels to green and brown.
“The new Adjustable MCS is developed to meet the requirements from modern, fast moving maneuver forces that operate in contested domains and are quickly changing terrain. From rural to urban in the same day,” says Görgen Johansson head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have already been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide. Saab offers a unique package of tailor-made camouflage systems and force protection solutions that decrease the enemy’s ability to detect and engage. These solutions protect personnel, vehicles and base infrastructure against hostile sensors and enemy target acquisition.
Barracuda camouflage solutions offer multispectral protection. Everything from ultra-violet, visual, near infrared, short wave infrared to thermal sensors and radar. Built-in thermal radiation protection reduces the operating temperature inside vehicles and increases crew comfort, firing accuracy, and fuel efficiency.

Quetta: At least six people were injured after a helicopter crashed near the Eastern bypass in Balochistan's capital city of Quetta in Pakistan
The injured have been taken to the Combined Military Hospital, Geo TV reported quoting Quetta Deputy Inspector General (DIG).
The reason for the crash is yet to be ascertained.
IMI Systems (formerly Israel Military Industries) and Israel Aerospace Industries have jointly developed a new long-range precision strike weapon suitable for use during stand-off-range attacks.
Named Rampage, the supersonic weapon is 4.7m (15.4ft) long and has a total weight of 570kg (1,250lb). Its rocket and warhead performance and navigation suite enable the design to be deployed against high-value, well-protected targets with "utmost precision", the companies say.Suitable for carriage by a broad range of aircraft types, including the Lockheed Martin F-16 fighter, the Rampage missile will be released from outside an area protected by air-defence systems.
Potential targets include command and control sites, communication facilities, air bases, maintenance centres and critical infrastructure, the companies say.

Battle hardened Pakistani terrorists. Observed fire discipline to make their ammo last longer. But own soldiers didn't let the 6 Paki fundamentalists last long enough to use all their ammo at the LoC. One group of 6 neutralised yesterday.
