Russia Stocks Up on Inflatable Arsenal

Full of hot air? Russia's Rusbal manufactures inflatables for advertising and defense industries. (rus): Russian balloon maker Rusbal is working on an order from the country's defense ministry to supply full-scale inflatable weapon models, including the S-300 long range surface-to-air missile systems. Gazeta writes that Rusbal is also developing inflatable models of tanks and airplanes, including the Su-27 (Flanker) fighter jet.

Update [Aug.25] for Wired's Danger Room readers:
Here are a few more pictures of Rusbal's military products. Also, check out these posts from a while ago: Military Seeks Scatterable Media, and Leaflet Bomb. And you will love Exile's War Nerd (archives) and their recent story about how Russia lost the propaganda war to Georgia.
