I suspect it will include much more convincing "evidence" than holograms though they might include holograms in the mix.

I bet they will use it on the battlefield...

I'm wondering why they haven't done that yet.

You could scare them to death. Make them think there are hundreds of airplanes. Make them think there are thousands of soldiers. Possibilities are pretty limitless for that kind of thing.

maybe?  but the effect would almost have to be short lived.  No incoming damage and an inability to inflict damage would be noticed pretty rapidly on a hot battlefield.

Just put a hologram of whatever god they worship in the sky. If you put Mohammad up there, no one would know who he is, though. No pics allowed.

If your enemy is of the religious extremist persuasion, you could do a lot of psychological damage. No religious nutter is going to shoot at a 'sign from god'.  You make them think that sign is persuading them to lay down arms and you could end it before it began.
