Living not to far from Ft. Campbell in Ky., it is not unusal for us to see all manner of military equipment and convoys. You never know...

Hear ya bro, I was on the interstate here and ran into a whole convoy of humvees, hemmets, and other wheeled vehicles. It was a sight to see them all fully loaded with troops. Thankfully though, they were traveling pretty slow in the right-hand lane, and I was able to make a quick pass to get outta there!


I don't think they drive the heavy tracked vehicles on the road though, guess it tears up the roads?

With all of the Birdpigman flu stuff going on and the vaccine threats against humanity, it is worthy of watching, hoever my vote would be that train is cheaper than fuel to haul the equiptment.

Ah hell it better not be about us!!!

It's the fastest, most economical way to transport them from base to base. Plus they would tear up the roads and cause massive traffic snarls from rubberneckers.

I find it completely amusing, all of that gear and no escort. Looks like a gang of cowboys could ride up on horses and do a 1800's version train heist.

These look new from the factory & as the ad says "train transportation is the cheepest per ton you can find anywhere". You have to haul them to the shore before you can ship them off.

Well then, I will be right there on the frontlines... making sure my loved ones aren't getting some untested innoculation. Shots could be... hrrrm, coming from my direction this time if it goes that far.


Sometimes WB man, you just creep me out.... with a healthy reality.

Cheers,

Get a tank on a paved road and you will have a pissed off mayor, police department and commuters. Atleast one construction company will be happy though.

Humvees have a top speed of about 50-60 mph, depending on which way the wind is blowing. When you see them on the highway and you are flying by them you should know that they have the pedal to the metal.

Ok I am about to put every ones Mind at ease here..... I am a Big train Buff. As a matter of fact I am 33 years old and I still play with Toy trains.... only there a bit more expensive then your average fisherprice plastic set. Around 20 to 30 bucks for a single Train Car.

Anyway.... Amy vehicles are rarely constructed a a single location.... one place you have the body and frame installed at another you might have transmissions and internal components installed. It's more expensive this way... and you should all know that our government thinks this way. I'm sure everyone has heard of the 20,000 dollar Hammer and 10,00 Dollar Toilet Seat.

So when you see a Vehicle being shipped.... Chances are it is either heading to another factory for odds and ends being installed or they are replacements for vehicle lost in combat.... Remember we got 2 wars going on plus we sell our vehicles to numerous countries.... Ive been seeing these trains since I was very young....

Oh yea there is no cowboy hijacking train for these.... these things are actually monitored pretty close.. They usually notify State Police of there routes.... and any changes and possible stops..

Relax, like other posters have said, the military have been transporting armored vehicles and the like on trains for years. Nothing new. Also if you see military vehicles in a convoy, it may only mean that there doing a driving excerise. That happens a lot for soldiers who are in Motor Transport in the military. When I was stationed at Pendleton, and 29 Palms there were convoy's that ran between the bases all the time. Now when you start seeing tracked vehicle's (namely tanks) on the roads, then you might want to start asking yourself questions.

Let's be realistic here. If the "NWO" or whatever shadow organization you are looking for would want to deliver "anything" to "keep down" the U.S. populace, tanks wouldn't be the thing. How many Americans own RPG's, or for that matter, anything that could harm a tank? I'd go with #tons of M-16's and SAW's.

Those are M1A2 SEPs. Best tank in the world. I used to kill some serious stuff with that tank. CITV and designation, plus digital fire missions? No contest. Can't wait to see the A3s.

Anyway, that is about the right number of tanks for a brigade combat team. They are either going to NTC in California, JRTC in Louisiana, or being fielded to a unit at homestation (likely 1st CAV, 3d ACR, or 4th ID). I doubt they're headed to port as most BCTs do not depoly with all their tanks. They could be going to port if they're getting shipped to Saudi Arabia or one of the other countries that buys our tanks.

Rail haul is the only way we move tanks in the Army. We'll put them on trucks for short hauls so as to not destroy the road driving them around, but if we're crossing state lines, it goes on a train. I used to do it all the time.

And for those of you worried about unguarded tanks, each train has several armed guards as the tank has several classified systems. My wife worked for the railroad and said the tank trains were always a pain because they had top priority, couldn't be stopped for more than a few minutes, and couldn't come within like 50 miles of Mexico or Canada.

If we witnessed China moving a group of tanks like this, we would be talking a different story, wouldn't we.

50 tanks is not a small number. Odd troop and arms movement within the US is always worth noting. I feel the military is up to something.

Thanks OP. S &F
