Ben,

Very true - "it's far more impressive to show photos of tanks than trucks", especially during WWII, although down at Anniston Army depot the Army built large shelters specifically to conceal tanks ready for shipment by rail. The rail head was visible from public lands, and I have been told that the Army was concerned that German spies might be studying tanks being shipped to the front, hence they kept them inside very large and long Quonset hut like sheds.

And, sadly, professionally, "Logistics never gets any respect", may be even more true today...

BTW, for the military modelers that frequent this group, there is an a modest collection of foreign armor from many eras at the same location at Anniston - just rusting away - inside the fence, but visible in Google maps/earth.
