1.) Rail is probably the most efficient method to transport these things across a country. So probably easier to do one single haul then 50 different
ones via flatbed trucks.
2.) The tanks all have their barrels and firing mechanisms removed, likely for safety concerns traveling through states and probably regulations...
Same reason I have seen hummers with the enclosed canopies being shipped without a .50 cal mounted atop.
3.) Tanks can be painted for any theatre they go into. And probably is done in the field even if in a hurry... So just because they are forest green
doesn't mean they are being shipped to somewhere Europe or south America.
My guess? They are being taken out of mothball storage from somewhere. Maybe these are 1990's Bradlys and are going to be upgraded? I can't see why
they would have them still painted in national guard colors.
I also so an interesting documentary where damaged vehicles are stripped back down, destroyed parts replaced and refitted and then rearmed to go back
into the field. But I doubt we lost 150 Bradleys in action.
Other interesting point, is there was also the fuel trucks that are attached to these units, being transported. So it does seem that could be some
evidence of a sort of activation... Either training in the open spaces of USA or...
