Blown Up

As we all know, the Russian military has been trying to put a brand new coat of paint on its aging weaponry and maybe even ::gasp:: replace said weaponry with new stuff. How to accomplish this within today's constrained budget has been the question... until today.

Now the Russian military will only need to pay a fraction of the cost to fill its quotas. The answer? Inflatable missiles, tanks, and air defense weapons... Half the price, but twice the fun!

On a side note, this is actually a pretty ingenious disinformation tactic. The Allies and the Germans used similar moves in WWII, but no doubt it took longer to inflate those weapons in the days before electric airpumps.
