Submission + - Russian army upgrades its inflatable weapons->

jamax writes: From the TFA:
"The Russian military has come up with an inventive way to deceive the enemy and save money at the same time: inflatable weapons. They look just like real ones: they are easy to transport and quick to deploy. You name it, the Russian army is blowing it up: from pretend tanks to entire radar stations..."
But the interesting thing is these decoys are not dumb — actually they appear to be highly advanced for what I thought was a WWII-grade aerial photography countermeasures. Apparently they have heat signatures comparable with the military tech they represent, as well as the same radar signature...
And they have ballistic missiles among these inflatables, too!
Just imagine buying half a dozen of these toys and inflating them during a vacation in, say, Cuba... Just for lolz of course!
