Air Force Muscle Cars

The U.S. Air Force built two highly-customized muscle cars complete with radar-absorbing paint, proximity sensors and targeting cameras for its recruitment program.

USAF A-10 Monster Truck. Built to match the A-10C Thunderbolt II Warthogs serving in the 188th Fighter Wing, the monster truck will be the weapon of choice for recruiters of the USAF. The vehicle has been fitted with the A-10′s wings and two General Electric GF-34 engines, accompanied by a 30mm Gatling gun. None of them actually work, though. :(

If the driver doesn’t feel like getting out of their bunker he or she can command Vapor from a remote control system (even through internet) modeled after the Air Force’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. The car reportedly gets somewhere around 500 horse power – but it’s true specs and top speed are being kept a tighter secret then what’s inside Area 51.

The driver can view night/thermal vision projections on the windshield while sitting in a compartment that looks like something out of Crimson Tide.

The Challenger Vapor features radar-absorbing stealth-black paint, not unlike what is used to mask stealth bombers. The Vapor is set to run almost silently, thanks to “stealth exhaust” – whatever that means. You need biometric verification to enter the cockpit via gull wing doors.
