when i see things like this i always wonder if this happens all the time and just goes unnoticed...so when someone notices its quite freaky (and it is) since it seems like it rarely happens...but how else would they transport these vehicles when not in use?
i mean, is there an explanation for this?
(not to mention the numerous other reports of things VERY similar to this in these past weeks)

i spent a month in Oklahoman in march of 08, when i was there i lived right by the main rail tracks that went from Texas north threw Oklahoma, (god it sucked), one day i heard one of the trains going by and looked out the window, it had about 3-4 times as many tanks as in that first video.
my uncle said he see's it all the time down there, so it may be the norm, but i don't know...

For a while I lived in Maryland they had the Aberdeen firing range we would see them ship in Tanks all the time.

What seemed odd to me with these tanks is that most of them appear to have mounts (for 50. cal / MK19) on them. This leads me to believe that maybe they are not new? Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I didn't think mounts came pre-installed; it could be possible that it's how the abrams come out of the factory. After looking at the video a second time, it seems like some have the mounts up and others might not but I might not have been able to see them due to the angle of the camera.
I also wanted to add that tanks could be used for some sort of population crack down. They would most likely be used as a show of force and they wouldn't be doing all that much with them.

wow this reminds me of those movies when the ppl see this and think nothing of it and the screen cuts to black and says 2 months later when the tanks are rolling down the street from walmart
