They look like Toyota Mega Cruiser as used by Japanese Ground Self Defense Force?

Your Chinese is probably Japanese deployed for Exercise Iron Fist?

www.dvidshub.net...

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - The First Marine Expeditionary Force and the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit welcomed the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force’s Western Infantry Regiment to the start of exercise Iron Fist here Feb. 8. The bilateral training planned during the next month will showcase each component of the Marine Air Ground Task Force, from small boat operations and aerial inserts to company sized live-fire events.....

Foreign troops routinely train on US soil, with American forces. I doubt they would be Chinese, more likely S. Koreans or perhaps the Japanese.

This is done to proof out communications and tactics, as well as command structures. It helps to enable integration of forces in certain scenarios. Most likely South Koreans given the recent tensions on the Korean penn.

Sounds like situation normal, given the events of the last year.

highly unlikely because of the area of the base they are in, and there are prolly about 50 of them, any where from 4 man carriers to 6 man carriers and trailers, we do do joint training like you speak of but most of our joint training occurs over seas and when we do joint training here state side, we dont have BRAND NEW vehicles shipped in

The Japanese also deployed last year to California with vehicles. Image link of them with deployed vehicles. Note Toyota Mega Cruisers in far background and light armoured vehicles in foreground.

I was an officer in the Navy. We routinely trained with Canadian and other forces. A Captain friend of mine (he was a Lt. Commander then) trained in Forward Air Control with many different nationalities.

You see and believe what you do. I am offering a rational explanation.

I cannot see what you saw. I just know what I saw and experienced.

Oh hell. If you've been in for 7 years, I could be your father. I am relating my experiences in the early 80's

i wasnt trying to say you were wrong by any means, I was just stating when foreign nations come to train with us its typically just the force themselves , they dont bring, vehicles, armored vehicles, and stuff like that , thats just my expeirence though, I trained with germans, spanish, and algerians, in a time span of 2 years and non of them brought their own vehicles, as well as when I trained with the canadians and the brit marines , they didnt bring their own vehicles either, all of which were training ops in the us on us soil at us bases, again I dont know how it was in your day , but i do know how they have done things with ops I have been involved in

Are you sure about that?
Evidently, the Japanse car manufacturers find that it is within reason. Any government certainly would ship if it had the slightest desire to do so. Don't forget, a lot of those car-carrying ships have been idled in the last couple of years. They are probably making sweet deals these days.

Territorial Army Possibly? They are all over most of the english bases at the moment

No they are not!

To the OP are you aware that alot of countries have entered into an agreement a bit like favor for a favour, basically it's like "If you fly my troops here we will owe you when you want to go somewhere" us Brits have an agreement with the French with there aircraft carriers.

It's because we are all poor

I saw some Chinese missile launching trucks and radar, similar to the US patriot missile system, here in Las Cruces NM, a couple months ago.

Errr yes they are, Simples...Do you actually know what the Army is?....I know you say your in it, But in reality you seemingly think that not only you know the locations of secret bases that dont contain anything but water because they are resovoires, But that you openly declare that TA army reserve Vehicles are not stored On Uk bases, And not just that The TA arnt anywhere in england....Where are they stored/based then?..in a resovoire?

Do you just sit at home trolling all day long?

I certainly hope Japan and not China. Is there any way this can be confirmed on base.

If Chinese I say somethings up. I think something is up anyway - just not sure which direction its coming from for certain. N Korea, Iran, Egypt, China etc. take your pick.

Yes I am in the army I'm posted to Bielefeld in Germany.

Fact! The TA have there own camps! In the UK

What do you know about the army or forces in general your a CIVI bum.

Fact what vehicles the TA do have are old and are not pooled onto regular army bases for storage! They are kept in there own camps.

The TA's budget had been cut so much they can't even deploy on exercises bar there yearly necessary ones.

So in summary don't comment on something you haven't got a clue about

Exactly So they are all over english bases then...


Or do the TA Army bases not class as english soil....

Thankyou for Illiterating my point

Ok if that's what you ment what relevance is that?

By saying they are all over English bases is saying they are on all of them or most of the regulars army bases is it not?

Here's a silly thought.
Someone in DRMO bought them up for nothing and another base needed something. I know this isn't conspiratorial. Sorry. But this could be perfectly reasonable expanation.
