THe idea that the SAS may be parachuting German Shepherds out of planes with camera's attached to their head got me thinking. We should start a thread of all the random cool things that you have heard about being proposed (or actually done) by the armies of the world. A couple of my favourites are without a doubt, Project X-Ray and the "gay bomb": Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bat_bomb Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_bomb BUt there has to be more awesome stories of weird stuff that armies have tried in the name of defence. I know for example, there was all the fake inflatable tanks and landing boats used in the UK for the purposes of fooling the German's prior to the start of WWII and the dead body that they used for the same purpose (the name of the operation with the dead body escapes me). But post anythinkg else amusing you can find or remember.
