Stealth technology is the use of advanced materials and design to drastically reduce the radar signature of a vehicle. According to Battlelog description of the Stealth upgrade: "Engine tuning and fuselage coating materials disguise your vehicle's infrared signature, increasing enemy locking and tracking difficulty and decreasing the time you are revealed to the enemy from being spotted."

When activated, the spotting radius for enemies is decreased, and any successful spots disappear faster.
Stealth also reduces the radius for weapon lock, protecting the user from heat-seeking weaponry. This upgrade does not stack if both pilot and gunner have it equipped, according to the Battlefield 3 guide. In this case, it's best to have something else in place of Stealth if you are the gunner; good chances are that the pilot will already have stealth equipped.
Increases the lock on time by 35%.Stealth is unlocked early on and is only at its highest potential when there are many enemy anti-air weapons with missiles being used to target the player.
