Not the worst thing to just randomly find I suppose?

Probably heading to Ukraine for the Russians to blow up.

Well that train that dropped those was not a military commanded train. It was sent on whatever the closest rail line so who knows. Look like Army owned flat cars however which could have something to do with it. The train likely is shutting down in emergency mode a ways up the track, I’d guess those cars broke off somewhere before the road crossing and finally stopped where their inertia was no longer enough to overcome the weight of the equipment.

And no, equipment being moved by rail is not right now a suspicious thing, most vehicles the military has are moved in this way. Cheap, faster than spending the fuel and troops time and it also saves wear and tear on the vehicles. I’m pretty sure those are US Army owned flat cars and equipment. They ship stuff out to training centers or for unit movements all the time this way. If you’d start to see long trains full of tarped vehicles that makes it less easy to identify what they are then I’d be worrying something strange might be happening.

Note how none of those have the 25mm gun fitted. They also likely have no co-ax, little to no fuel, and possibly no oil in the crank case. Shipping regs usually require vehicles to be drained of liquid POL for shipment. If they were fully fueled they would probably have the Class 3 Flammable UN Placard on them.

    They remove the barrels and store them in the troop compartment so they don’t get caught on anything in transit.
