#1678: WheelShields

It makes me laugh when military vehicles get some super new high tech camouflage such as this, which leaves the wheels easily visible.

In fact, the circularity of armoured car wheels makes them easily detectable even by robotic sentries with image processing capability.

Today’s invention is therefore a set of irregularly shaped plates, each of which hangs from a pivot attached to the vehicle’s skirt, as shown.

This effectively hides the circular wheel shape, whilst not obstructing the suspension system.
