I am not sure where in California this is, however, when I was in the Army we trained at Fort Irwin. It's the Army's National Training Center (NTC). I was field artillery and stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. All of our equipment for training at NTC was shipped by rail. Not saying this is what is taking place here, but it's a possibility.

Old news.

They were all the way in southern mexico the other day. Probably to send Chavez a message down south.

The interesting parts of this:

1) there were no MBT's there.
2) they were nearly ALL bradley IFV's, though they had very inconsistent parts. I.e. some were missing skirting, some had reactive armor added, some did not. If I were to guess, I'd guess they were retrofits of ones damaged by IED's given nearly all of them had symmetrical turrets/addons.
3) Est 100+ bradley IFVs and around 10-15 fuel trucks. No Hummers, no MBT's.
4) The most significant thing about this is that they had new paint jobs... but not in desert/coyote coloring. Rather it was forest camo. I wonder where they'll be going that they'd be doing any fighting in a forest?

South eh? Probably just playing defensive or possibly an arms sale.
