Two images taken with infrared image sensors. The tank on the right has no MCS (Mobile Camouflage System) camouflage cover and the tank on the left has the cover. The difference in the visibility of the tank in the sight of infrared sensors is quite noticeable. In the image below, the engine heat is very evident in the rear of the tank, but is hidden in the tank on the left.
