Very busy IRL at this time, do not be suprised if I don't reply to PMs for prolonged periods.

That is really neat. I wish I could see that stuff.
Lots of that stuff is really well preserved.
And is that some sort of shell in one of the pictures?

No way, it couldn't be that large. (Notice the guy's foot next to it)

The photo above is of US 155mm shells, various types. If I remember correctly, most of the artillery guns from that time and region were 152mm. Using an unknown foot as a reference in measurement doesn't do jack shit though when you don't know the approximate shoe/foot size. That could be a child's foot, or a 7-foot giant's foot. Judging by the construction of the shell though, it is most likely in the 15xmm range.

And yes, there have been shells MUCH larger...



...Such as this Japanese 18-inch shell intended for use on their uber-battleships. Now that's pimp.



As for the vehicles in the primary topic's story, I'm really amazed to see that many vehicles left in such "decent" condition. I am going to assume that they were discarded on government land, or else those vehicles would have been picked clean by salvagers.

Man, I wish you could find that kind of stuff standing around over here.

The radar vehicles (I think?) looked pretty interesting inside. Looks like most of them were command/intelligence/radar vehicles, the ones left behind anyways. I wonder how that shell ended up there...
