Flying cars in service in the U.S. Army

So begin to realize the dream of science fiction writers that the car will be able to just simply get in the air and drop back to the ground as they move along the highway. But such ideas were with creative people from the early 20-ies of the last century. While car-it had not yet become full owner of American roads, and people have beheld colorful dreams about how cars loitering over their heads.

Now the world is there are a number of species aviamobiley, which combine the properties inside the plane and ordinary "car". Particular success in the production of these machines have gained American company Terrafugia. Already quite affluent citizens can put out-of-pocket about a quarter of a million bucks and buy miracle machine. In a couple of years Terrafugia produces promotional videos in which car owners are happy with screws and wings first leave from his own garage, and later shake the button — wings wonderful design laid out, hear the noise of the engines, and aviamobil takes to the skies.

Who wanted to get something similar at their disposal and South American military structure. They want the developers have taken care of the development of armored vehicles, which will be able to rise into the air and produce a rather longish flights. Why the Yankees this technique, if you have the same helicopters and planes? The answer is pretty obvious. If the project which was named the "flying Humvee», will be brought to life, the Pentagon will be able to complete some of the truly functional machines. One of the representatives of the South American military establishment, reflecting on the potentials of the armored aviamobilya in the Army, is that it can be used as an unmanned mechanized tools, which can lead to both land and aerial reconnaissance. With all this protection will allow the body does not just kill the enemy unit. If you equip a flying car guns, except that he will be able to search functions and intelligence to strike at the enemy, whether on the ground or in the air.

There is a so-called project piloted flying SUV which will be one of the already identified for the implementation of U.S. companies. It is planned that this machine will be able to carry on board up to 5 people, and certain goods. With all of this Transformer TX, both previously called it the military will develop a fairly severe security systems, and machine gun, which is not allowed to hit the ground aviamobilyu unhindered.

This extraordinary flying machine can be applied to the merits of a variety of purposes. In the middle of these goals can be called a role in the cover-up of infantry formations from low altitude, the overcoming of obstacles in the form of minefields, and the movement of mobile troops in the criteria for difficult terrain.

If the South American army has recently received such a technique, and the developers they say that it could happen as early as 2012, in its composition may seem outright aviamobilnyh several regiments. It is planned that the brand-new technology will be used for the implementation of police operations in the areas of other states. So in this kind of technique is very interested in Israel. In light of not so long ago, exacerbated the conflict with the Palestinians, even an Israeli authorities announced the possibility of co-financing of the project on creation of the United States flying bronemobilya with the functions of the liquidation of the enemy.

Critics of such machines claim that in the case of aviamobiley in the air, for example, over Afghanistan, they can become enviable targets for MANPADS. And, indeed, the flight speed of no more than 500 km / h (and in fact still have a model of a speed of 190 km / h), making flights in such machines is very dangerous. Well, on the maneuverability of these vehicles have not yet read. In general, the developers still have time until the loaf on how to improve the security of such extraordinary means of reconnaissance and combat.
