Advantages of the M1A1 Abrams Tank Inflatable Decoy

  • Deceptive Maneuvers: The M1A1 Abrams Inflatable Decoy effectively mimics a real tank, creating confusion and diverting enemy attention from actual military assets.
  • Risk Mitigation: By drawing enemy fire away from real M1A1 Abrams tanks, the inflatable decoy reduces the risk to personnel and valuable equipment on the battlefield.
  • Cost-Efficient Solution: Investing in the inflatable decoy offers a cost-effective way to simulate the presence of additional M1A1 Abrams tanks, creating the illusion of a larger armored force without deploying real tanks.
  • Easy Transportation and Deployment: The lightweight and portable design of the inflatable decoy enables quick transportation and positioning, allowing for agile tactical deception.
  • Strategic Flexibility: The inflatable decoy can be rapidly repositioned to adapt to changing battlefield scenarios, optimizing its impact on enemy perceptions.
  • Force Multiplier: By presenting a larger armored force, the M1A1 Abrams Inflatable Decoy enhances the psychological impact on enemy forces, potentially deterring attacks or diverting enemy resources.
  • Enhancing Operational Security: The decoy's ability to draw enemy attention away from real tanks helps protect genuine M1A1 Abrams tanks and critical military installations.
  • Training and Preparedness: Incorporating inflatable decoys in training exercises allows military units to practice deception tactics and enhance their readiness for real-world combat situations.


  1. The Inflatable Target/Decoy may weigh over more than 200-600lbs. (depending on the model), so caution should be exercised when moving/inflating/loading/unloading and handling the equipment. Always use heavy-duty dolly with steel fenders such as Monster Mover to move your Target/Decoy and staff should always wear back support belt.
  2. Be sure the area that you will be setting up your Target/Decoy is free of all debris including any rocks or sharp objects. Grass or hard ground is fine for set up if there are no rocks, debris, or sharp objects.
  3. You may opt to lay out a ground tarp to protect the Target/Decoy, but not necessary.
  4. The inflated Target/Decoy requires clearance from adjacent obstacles is a minimum 5’ (1.5m) around and above the perimeter of the Target/Decoy with an additional 15’ (4.5m) clearance from utility lines.
  5. Unroll the Target/Decoy and lay flat in the desired direction/orientation.
  6. Tie off any unused blower tubes and be sure that all zippers/flaps are closed.
  7. The Target/Decoy is to be anchored by a minimum (6)18" x 12” ground stakes at 85% depth. Anchoring should be applied at a 90 degrees angle (i.e., perpendicular)
  8. If anchoring on a hard surface such as asphalt or cement, a minimum of 80lb sand or water bags should be required per anchor location. Aircrafts can be anchored to tie-down rings.
  9. Connect inflation blower to the air tube using strap attached and close off the additional air tubes by twisting the tube several times and fold it over and secure snugly with attached strap.
  10. Now you can install your heat signature radiant blankets (if it wasn’t installed from the factory). Locate the velcro flaps to attach the thermal blanket(s). (Note: tanks will have thermal blankets in the engine compartment and both tracks. Other vehicles will have thermal blankets in the engine compartment and generators.
  11. Plug your inflation blower(s) into the closest properly grounded (GFCI) 110v or 220v (depending on your power source/Country) outlet or gasoline/diesel generator.
