And the point of shelters is that you can't see into them…
If you don't find an airfield that appears suddenly interesting fine.

If they were planning on putting large aircraft into them the taxiways would to along side the ends of it, to allow them more room to maneuver.
The taxiways aren't complete, but look at the placement of them. Instead of going past the ends, where it would be much easier to move, they're right on the corners. That tells me that they're going to be towing aircraft in, and they're aircraft that don't require a lot of maneuver room.
An A330 is NOT a small aircraft. The A330MRTT is almost 200 feet long, by almost 200 feet wide,

The same as a civilian runway. Several military runways are civilian airport runways.
You don't put the taxiway there to get into the hangar. You put it off the end of it.
