The U.S. military is preparing to make the first-ever electric steel infuser for its tanks.
The Army is currently testing the infuser, which can be plugged into a battery or a computer and will come in three sizes: 1-inch (30.4 millimeters), 2.5-inch, and 3.5 inch.
The new product, called Qualit Steel, is expected to cost about $100,000 and will be produced at Fort Lewis, Washington.
It will be available to the military next year, Army officials told CNN.
The weapon will be used to fill in empty tanks for training and firefighting purposes, said Sgt. Col. Eric Hahn, a spokesman for the Army Combat Training Command.
