Interesting thread! It made me think of a similar story about 20 years ago involving a fleet of US Army half tracks that had been sitting somewhere in Germany for decades until someone in Washington realized they were there and decided to get rid of them. MVPA ran a series of articles about them and the efforts to have them released to collectors, but IIRC the powers that be deemed them too dangerous to be released to the civilian market and I think Germany ended up hauling them off to a range somewhere to be used for target practice. There was apparently a large related store of spare parts but I do not know what ever became of them.
