Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

That looks like an Aquaman tank.

As a guy who cruised around central CA for 7 months with a bunch of carpet glued to his tank, I'll say this - those kinds of coverings help disrupt a radar signature, but they don't do fuck-all for disguising you in a thermal sight.

All of those coverings are used to disrupt and degrade IR signature. Some better than others. Depending on materials that last cover could degrade radar too. Cool tech.

The carpet helped with some things.  The jet engine in the hull tended to not hide from thermals very well

If that's a Leo2 in the pic then IIRC it runs on diesel.

An M1 can run on diesel, but it's still a jet engine

Sorry, I should have included that the Leo has a conventional (and presumably cooler-running) reciprocating cyl engine, not a turbine.

Here's a great image showing the various Merkava Marks' turret design:
