Topic to post photo and video of various AFV seen through a thermal camera.
I know that we won't be able to make any comparisons on the thermal signature of various tank without knowing which camera took the image and that the same areas (tracks, engine, sometimes exhaust) will always be the ones to show up but anyway:
Just to see them under a different light than usual (pardon the terrible pun^^)

Welcome to Mighty Zuk's place of mental rest and peace of mind. This is my realm.
I've decided it would be best to ditch the old Merkava thread for 2 reasons:
1)It does not feature any bunched up information in its main post, and valuable information is scattered across different posts on different pages.
2)Many AFVs that are not related to the Merkava, or related but are not it, appear in that thread with improper representation. There are other AFVs than the Merkava, and it would be better to refer to them in a general way.
As time will go by, I will arrange this thread into a sort of information center.
I will take up a few first comment spaces to make sure proper amount of information can be stacked up on the front page and for easier access for everyone.

But did you know that the Germans had other vehicles? It's true! You should talk about them here.
