It should work better than three or four individual radials and it will not be resonant and critical to tune. The radiation pattern may not exactly perfect with part of it sloping with the roof and other parts flat, but I think it will be better overall than any radial system.

The military antennas in question get mounted to the sides and corners of military vehicles and in the case of the magazine article it was mounted on the rear corner of a HUMMER.
