American special forces are testing stealth motorcycle

104

The US military began to test the new "stealth motorcycle." The universal car moves almost silently on the road and works even when immersed under water on the 100, see


The working title of the motorcycle is MMX, it was developed by Zero Motorcycles. The model is difficult to detect at night, it has high maneuverability when driving on rough terrain, is virtually silent, and can work even in water at a depth of up to a meter.
Among other things, the motorcycle is equipped with an infrared illumination system paired with night vision systems, as well as a keyless quick start system.

The MMX power system consists of two batteries, which ensure continuous operation without recharging for two hours. If necessary, they can be replaced almost instantly.

“We got a very interesting experience working on this project. The military wanted to get from the motorcycle unique and necessary directly to them quality. We are very pleased that we have been given the opportunity to work with them on this truly special project, ”said Eero Ashkenazi, Technical Director of Zero Motorcycles.

MMX will be produced exclusively for the military and cannot be sold to civilians. However, Zero Motorcycles noted that the corporation will use the acquired knowledge to create more powerful motorcycles for consumers.

    Good technique, I love bikes ... It's amazing that it works at 1m depth, it was like an electrician who had to cover it belay And so a good idea is silent, invisible with good cross and speed

      Here is more informative
      The Zero MMX 2013 electric bike is designed for US special forces, which can take advantage of the tactical advantages of a low-speed off-road vehicle.

      The model of the new Zero MMX bike is developed on the basis of Zero MX civilian electric cycles and has a number of options that are determined by the purpose of the electric cycles.

      At the moment, an unknown number of Zero MMX electric bikes pass full operational tests.

      Add-ons and Accessories:
      push button ignition
      integrated wiring for infrared systems mounted front and rear
      headlight on / off
      additional protection against water (depth - up to a meter)
      hand protection
      new running boards
      tow rope


      I wonder what kind of batteries and how much they last? belay

        Such a device is very useful for them in war in deserts and mountains. laughing Especially what works under water. Yes, and it's good that the motorcycle is silent, but that's not the problem. A Bradley or Abrams can ride nearby, even Hammer and the entire disguise of a cat down the drain, and apart from his own one it will be "not very" safe to ride on it.

          Whose trend has gone, everywhere and everywhere, to “invisibility”, that it’s not a new technique, it’s immediately necessary to “invisibility” ... it will come to pass that soon when placing the order of the US defense department for military uniforms, the main criterion will be invisibility, so that “valiant” American soldier scared all enemies of his nakedness laughing

          but rather for reconnaissance units, or special forces ...
          And so, a cool bike

            Well, for them it may be a plus, but also doubtful. The bike may not be noisy, but the stones, water, etc. why it goes can make a lot of noise. Therefore, the value of this development is considered doubtful.

                And the kit also includes a “charger”, and a diesel generator station, to generate electricity, as well as a cart with spare batteries, which “can be replaced almost instantly”. In addition, the kit includes a tanker for a diesel generator, as well as a technical support vehicle for servicing a tanker, diesel generator, motorcycle, and charger. The staff of the unit has: tanker drivers and technical support vehicles, diesel generator operator, fuel and lubricant box, battery man, technicians, security, a field kitchen for feeding this codla, two cars with food and ammunition. Chefs, waiters, technical workers to deploy this all in the desert, two buses for the movement of service personnel and security. wink
                By the way, I did not quite understand how noiselessness affects invisibility, but oh well ... They know better, or rather invisible ... wassat

          And do not discover anyone.
          If you pull a rope with hooks in the evening along the road or on forest paths between the trees like a fishing tycoon, then the American motorcyclist will find himself screaming.
          And if the night passed quietly, then in the morning you just need to remove the dead carcasses of dead motorcyclists from the hooks.

            But seriously, many problems were solved unconventionally based on a sense of humor. The concept of asymmetric response from there. I heard from serious people that the launch of small hardware into orbit was being worked out to neutralize the radio communications of the US satellites. A literary idea.

It is invisible, but there is only one small detail for this you need to close your eyes. Probably this bike is another Yankee bike and it is invisible only for their drunken eyes.

It is powered by 3 acid batteries 12 volts 12 ampere hours, the weight is somewhere around 27 kilograms, it says it rolled far while the batteries are low, a very decent brushless motor-wheel and regulator are splash-proof, it now goes to work on traffic jams, in the summer it's a nice thing .We immediately upgraded this scooter by sticking ion batteries instead of acid-lithium batteries, they are three times lighter, with a larger capacity, here is the base for the warriors, take it and upgrade it, the price is 27 ty.

    Hello everyone! The Americans have nowhere to go, the invisibility motorcycles were about to make (when I read only the name I thought that amers do stealth technology, but why, but then I read it and it turns out to be almost silent lol ) The toy is interesting, but how effective. I remembered such a thing here - Americans spent several billion to develop a pen that will write in space, while ours use a pencil, and there is a BIKE here.

      How long will this device drive on its battery over rough terrain - a kilometer? two ?? and then we charge for half a day ???
      Does it look like a drank ????

      The batteries, judging by the size, are not very large and their commandos will not carry themselves. But the bike is good and you can easily drop it even from an airplane by parachute, even from a turntable with a winch or when landing. hi

      The comments are mostly about nothing. Gays were mentioned, they remembered the cut, they joked stupidly, but they forgot to mention the advantages of technology. It seems that you are not on the VO website, but on the Crooked Mirror website. One wants to block everything around with wire (why not flares or mines? winked ), another thinks that special forces are thrown behind enemy lines, the third for some reason thinks that special forces must accompany Bradley or Hammer ... In general, think hard and cool.
      Invisibility provides that an electric motor is used, and not an internal combustion engine (temperature spectrum), the batteries change quickly and I do not think that they are large in size. So his task is to quickly and imperceptibly deliver 2-4 saboteurs close to the place of sabotage (reconnaissance) and in the future he will also evacuate for 5 s “+”. Imagine what kind of army equipment he can pursue anywhere except in the desert or the steppe?

              Recently, new information about Zero Motorcycles, which will appear in 2012, has appeared. It became known that these motorcycles will have new batteries, motors and cladding. About these innovations told the portal Asphalt & Rubber. Motorcycle batteries will be installed 6 kW and 9 kW. The preliminary cost of such motorcycles will fluctuate. She will be approaching thirteen thousand dollars. Motorcycle production will begin in December, and they will go to Zero in January. 9 kW battery, bike can drive 186 km. For off-road vehicles, this parameter is approximately 45 minutes. The speed of such motorcycles will be more than 150 km / h. The appearance of the motorcycle will also change. She will be more inclined to classical. This information will be officially confirmed at EICMA. Try not to miss such news.

              The global economic crisis has shown how volatile the price of black gold is, from which fuel is mainly made for vehicles. This once again made scientists around the world think about creating alternative fuels. Many automotive concerns have turned their eyes on battery-powered electric motors. The changes affected not only cars, but also motorcycles.
              The American company Zero Motorcycles has released a motorcycle that is powered by an electric motor. Lithium ion batteries enough for 64 kilometers. If this is not enough, then you can replace them on the go and continue your journey. It produces an electric motor of 20 horsepower.

        No, the device is not bad (the idea is a warrior, too). However, there are batteries (their reliability, durability, and most importantly, CAPACITY) and how and where (and most importantly, how long) to charge them in the field? And yet, I’ll tell you, with a fast discharge, the batteries (which are used in such devices) heat up extremely well (right up to the explosion) and the electric motor also releases heat. So the thermal masking in such a lineup is doubtful. They would take better, but design a good ICE for these needs. These problems would not have been.

          Modern LiFePo4 batteries can withstand heating up to 500 degrees without explosion - in Russia, a factory of these batteries was built - but they deliver only pancakes (all kinds of torpedoes), high capacity and maximum current, low weight. For example, a battery for a model helicopter of size 90 has a peak consumption engine 11 kW, the motor weight is 500 grams, the battery for this ashtray weighs 1500 grams, the size is 150 * 50 * 100 mm, the voltage is 44 volts, the peak current is up to 650 amperes, continuously 65C = 325 amperes, the battery can be charged with a current of 12C that's 60 amperes and Charging time will be approximately 15 minutes. de new more capacious and high-current batteries. All modern batteries of this type are very hot when working with maximum currents, but when working with a current of 25-45C, C is the capacity of the battery, completely cold, for example, an electric scooter bursts about 25 amperes, well, let this electric bike consume 100 amperes, these are quite tolerable modes.

    A little off topic, but still: US military mistakenly fired at a Japanese farmer's pasture

    WASHINGTON, June 13. U.S. forces stationed on Hokkaido Island Thursday apologized for shooting a shell from an American howitzer during a recent training firing on a Japanese farmer’s pasture.
    The incident occurred on June 11 at the largest Yausubetsu military training ground in Japan. Due to the error of the gunner-marine, a projectile fired from a 155 mm howitzer flew outside the fire zone and exploded into a pasture at a distance of 500 m from the edge of the landfill. No harm done. The gunner and the commander of the artillery crew were suspended from firing, an investigation was launched, online media reported.
    The representative of the command of the US Marine Corps promised to take measures to no longer allow such blunders.
    Recall that in late May, the Ministry of Defense of Japan demanded that the command of the US armed forces in the country take measures to prevent incidents like the plane crash of an F-15 fighter off the coast of the southern island of Okinawa. The incident occurred during an exercise. The fourth-generation all-weather tactical fighter McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eaglel flew from the U.S. Air Force base located in Okinawa, Japan. During the flight, the pilot reported technical problems on board and ejected. The plane crashed into the ocean 115 kilometers east of the coast of Okinawa.

    It is curious that officially there are no military chats (American in Hokkaido). Only air force communications base. But it turns out like this ...

    The exhaustion of money from the budget is another cut. What is so secret about him that they don’t sell to civilians? I can make such a motorcycle in a day. It’s not clear what, put the battery with an electric motor on a frame with two wheels. Or was it built using STELS technology ?? The best motor bike is a bike! Batteries do not exactly sit down and are good for your health. I am silent about the noise.
    Then what to expect from their developers ?? Invisible and silent skateboards with cruise control and air conditioning for the rider's feet? (relevant for deserts), roller skates with soft suspension and increased cross-country ability and airbags? I’m sorry, I’ve just gotten sick. The sick fantasies of their developers are starting to annoy a little. They themselves are not funny from their developments? Indeed, what is the task of this motorcycle? What to do in autonomy when the batteries are low? And why is it needed at all, such a motorcycle, if it is possible to simply develop a VERY good muffler for a regular motorcycle and soundproof the engine? It will turn out much cheaper and most importantly, more reliable.

        Buggy and a motorcycle, from my point of view, TOTALLY DIFFERENT machines .... With a buggy you can fire on the go, but with a motorcycle ?, Cross-country ???? Alas, a buggy can go where a motorcycle will pass, unless it slips between the trees, and the carrying capacity of a buggy far exceeds the suitcase of a motorcycle ... So there is something to compare.

          Dear ... well, just talking about different things ...
          Please note that we are in the role of catching up ....
          Yes, the T-50 is better ... but there is no series ...
          Submarines are better ......

      Well, the military version will not be sold to you, but they are selling civilians ...))
      the civilian version is no worse, but there are no military lotions.

    Without video, this info is not so impressive. Here he is in action.

    What is special about this video? The practical value for military operations is dubious, a motorcyclist cannot do anything other than control while driving, in the daytime it is easily detected by the unmasking dust trail, at night, as has been rightly pointed out here, it is easily vulnerable by simply blocking the paths.

      This is the point ... there is no value in the fighting of this equipment, well, except that the capture of convoys of civilian refugees leaving the combat areas .... The Pentagon is ready to spend the nth amount of millions on this, definitely ....)) )))

    A hydrogen drone, an electricopedist, in the USA strained with gasoline, or did they decide to diversify military equipment for fuel, more hemorrhoids with refueling, so that the service does not seem to be honey? If the second, then I propose to consider the use of biogas. Moreover, a passing task is seen there, the organization of its collection from personnel and the solution of storage problems wassat

      The Soviet Union generated a huge number of different ideas, now there is no such possibility, but the amers are well aware that having ruined us, they alone remained at the peak of military technology and did not allow their scientists to degrade, even if they invented all kinds of garbage so they would not lose their qualifications, of which something useful may be taken, therefore the expenses for all garbage are apparently justified, and as you look in the current millennium, they will invent a new type of accumulator battery or fuel cell, and the periphery is almost ready for them. I hope our scientists, though not iaryatsya amers like, but also to develop new technologies.
      In modelism, ICE engines are very actively displaced by electric ones, especially lately, there were practically no helicopters left at world-class competitions of piston 3D models — electric trains displaced them, although they fly less, they are much more dynamic and powerful, and they turned on no problems and flew.

If they, for candy wrappers, were able to make a cool bike, and for secured rubles we can’t even establish the Typhoon production. So What to say about IL, MIG, Armata.

          And if you think a little deeper .... Then we can conclude that almost all the technologies were bought for candy wrappers, including scientists, designers who work for secured rubles. And very often information is sold by corrupt bastards, whose name is traitors to the motherland (this applies not only to the Russian Federation). Can you list your own U.S. scientists ?????

    In principle, an original technical solution. Apparently the batteries are unusual, if they work for so long.
    As disposable, for the delivery of a diversionary group, what is needed.
    But I would change the name "INVISIBILITY" to SHOREY : -)

    what kind of reconnaissance, what sabotage on it is behind enemy lines, you go around looking around on foot, you notice, there the flock fluttered, there the smoke creeps in, who rode a moto knows all the attention to the road all the more along the intersection, as it were, on a stump or groove not to run into

      "what kind of intelligence, what sabotage on him in the rear of the enemy, on foot you go around, look around, you notice, there the flock fluttered, there the smoke spreads ..."

      Unfortunately you, Stanislav, misunderstood me. I am not talking about Belarusian forests and Siberian tracts, but about deserts and semi-deserts of Syria, Iraq, Iran. Or do you think it's impossible at night, with infrared light, to ride a motorcycle? Here is an example of the destruction of an air defense unit:
      "During the many Israeli-Arab conflicts during the Cold War, Israel once applied several scenarios to combat Soviet-made air defense systems.

      The first scenario is the capture of an air defense system and its transfer to Israel. During the war "to exhaustion", the Egyptian air defense forces received the Soviet S-75 air defense system. To give target designation to these complexes, P-12 Yenisei early warning locators were used (target detection range - up to 250 km, detection height - up to 25 km). Three helicopters with Israeli paratroopers on board secretly flew over the front line and landed six kilometers from the station. During a short-lived battle, the station's security was destroyed. Then, the Israeli paratroopers dismantled the station and transported two heavy heavy helicopters, the SN-53, to Israel. Together with the station, her crew was captured and stolen. "
