My guys here have been replacing the head mirrors on the M1A1 tank Commander's Independant Thermal Viewer at $30,000.00 a pop. They are made from Germanium because infrared can't see through glass. The tank commanders said that the Iraqi kids are taking them out with slingshots. I would like to see a preemptive deterrent to the little buggers. This microwave weapon just may do the trick.
