The scenario we are discussing is one of civil unrest - in the US no less.
1) Armor troops and mechanized infantry troops are among the most lax and lazy in the US military. They love sitting in their vehicles - period.
They do not like to get out, especially when it is hot, cold, wet, or hell even night time. Their security is a joke. Overconfidence is a mech units
a. If you are also an American with no accent and have access to a combat uniform and some colorful language and a basic understanding of our rank
structure you could walk around all day in the supply/HQ area of a mech unit as long as you stood there hands on hips and looked like you belonged no
one would be the wiser.
b. I have done it a million times on exercises put on the right tanker uniform (say E6 or so high enough to not get asked questions but not high
enough people should know you on sight) walk right into the CP and attend shift change - not a person in there knew who I was. We'd have their whole
plan on tape for the intell guys - classic blue falcon.
2. There is no language or culture barrier to worry about, passwords and countersigns are not changed that often and if you have an old one wear low
rank and play dumb. Ask for the mess location and follow some crew to their vehicle after. They will all be asleep in 30 minutes of return...
Stay behind operations would be the key here. Because once their main line rolls past you are in the rear with the gear and could walk around almost
unchallenged. Just dig a hide, let em roll on by... Plant whatever munitions you want and detonate them on the way out. Personally, I'd blow the
fuel and ammo first its spectacular and demoralizing.
