The stealth snowmobile.

In what would  seem to be a story tailor-made for The Onion, Canada is apparently testing a stealth snowmobile prototype:

The Canadian military has been secretly test-driving a $620,000 stealth snowmobile in its quest to quietly whisk troops on clandestine operations in the Arctic.

The Canadian Press has learned that soldiers have taken the new hybrid-electric snowmobile prototype on trial runs to evaluate features such as speed, noise level, battery endurance and acceleration.

Given that Canada’s north consists of a lot of flat frozen tundra, they may be able to minimize the sound, but I’m not sure just how they’ll hide from view.

Only in Canada.
