Chevrolet Colorado ZH2

Not just any off-road vehicle, the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 is touted as the "most extreme off-road-capable fuel-cell-powered electric vehicle ever from General Motors," as it stands more than 6.5 feet tall and 7 feet wide. Reinforced inside and out, it rides on 37-inch tires and a specially modified suspension that helps the vehicle climb over and descend all manner of terrain. The U.S. Army plans on testing the Colorado ZH2 in extreme field conditions next year to determine the viability of hydrogen-powered vehicles on military missions. It features an Exportable Power Take-Off unit (EPTO) that allows the fuel cell to power activity away from the vehicle, such as remote locations where electric power may otherwise be unavailable.

Oshkosh JLTV


Think of the Oshkosh L-ATV (Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle) as a real-life Halo Warthog. This light utility/combat multi-role vehicle won the US military's Army-led Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program, and will part-replace the HMMWV. It delivers a level of protection similar to that of current, but far heavier and less maneuverable, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) class designs, these having far more protection from blast than even the latest up-armored HMMWVs. Power comes from a Gale Banks Engineering 866T V-8 diesel producing around 300 hp, mated to an automatic six-speed Allison Transmission. The base L-ATV does not have a standard armament, however it can be fitted with a selection of weapons including light, medium, and heavy machine guns, automatic grenade launchers, or anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) depending on user requirements.

McKinley Climatic Laboratory


The McKinley Climatic Laboratory is both an active laboratory and a historic site located in Building 440 on Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The main chamber was constructed to hold aircraft as large a B-29, its size also fitting the larger Convair B-36 Peacemaker. It now has 55,000 square feet (5,100 m2) working area. This allows it to test aircraft as large as a C-5A. Under hot conditions, it can achieve 165°F. The All-Weather Room has a temperature range from -80°F to 170°F. Rainfall can be as high as 15 inches (380 mm) per hour and the wind can be as high as 60 knots (31 m/s). Snow can also be made in the chamber. The Temperature-Altitude Chamber can simulate altitudes up to 80,000 feet, and range in temperature range from -80°F to 140°F. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Navy Electromagnetic Railgun

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) recently demonstrated the Navy's electromagnetic railgun initial rep-rate fires of multi-shot salvos at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. This revolutionary weapon relies on a massive electrical pulse, rather than gunpowder or other chemical propellants, to launch projectiles at distances over 100 nautical miles - and at speeds that exceed Mach 6. "They've extended the launcher core life from tens of shots' core life when program started to something that's now been fired over 400 times and...we anticipate barrels will be able to do over 1,000 shots," said Dr. Tom Beutner, head of Naval Air Warfare and Weapons for ONR.

Navy Laser Weapon

Developed by the US Navy, the AN/SEQ-3 Laser Weapon System or XN-1 LaWS is basically a directed-energy weapon designed to be used against low-end asymmetric threats. Scalable power levels allow it to be used on low-power to dazzle a person's eye to non-lethally make them turn away from a threatening posture, and increase to 30 thousand watts (30 kW) to fry sensors, burn out motors, and detonate explosive materials. Against a vital point on small UAVs, one can be shot down in as little as two seconds. When facing small boats, the laser would target a craft's motor to disable it and make it "dead in the water," then repeating this against others in rapid succession, requiring only a few seconds of firing per boat.
