    One word, OPFOR (Opposing Force). The US Army's 11th Armored Cavalry
    Regiment at Ft Irwin has a limited number of Soviet vehicles (and the rest
of their
    fleet dressed up to look like them, at least barely). Since this was a test
    makes a little sense for them to have the real thing to test new designs,
    against. Of course, I guess you have to assume they stay a test unit after
the Delaz
    conflict since Keith has a Geelgog Marine then.
