I saw seven of these unmarked trucks with federal plates on my way into town earlier today.  I wish I had taken a picture, but I figured that I would find piles of pictures of them with a Google image search, but I can't find anything like them.  Some were built on GM crew cab heavy duty pickup chassis and others were built on Kodiak crew cab chassis.  The box looked like this, but shorter.  Maybe 12'.  They were painted solid white, black, blue, or brown.



I didn't see the passenger side of any of them, so I don't know if they had a door on that side like the truck pictured, but I assume they did.  They had the same small blacked out window on the drivers side.

Anyone have any idea what they are?

That was my first thought, and probably would have been my only thought if it was just one, but seven or more of them and brand new trucks with gov plates makes me think that's not the case.

I saw three blue ones west bound on I-10 about 2 weeks ago or so. One was towing a box trailer and one had a dish on it.

Yeah, OP you need to go get as many more pictures of them as you can, if they're still around.

If you can find an overpass, those make great vantage points.

They were headed out of town when I saw them.  The bigger Kodiak chassis ones looked like the truck I posted the pic of except the cab was longer and the box was shorter.  The others had the same type short box, but were built on crew cab Chevy 1 ton pickup chassis.

I've seen the ones with the satellite dish on the roof around the guard base here, but these were different.  There were no externaly accessible tool lockers, and no dishes or big antennas, and no doors on the rear or drivers side.

Any news about Obozo coming to pay your area a visit?  It might be the White House Communications Agency coming to town to set up to support a visit.  Keep your ears pealed for news of a visit and then you can tell people how you knew days before because you recognized the comm team coming to town.

EMP.

Emergency management personnel is what you're referring to I assume but also aren't there EMP electromagnetic pulse preparedness exercises going on nation wide right now also?

So EMP both ways maybe.

Is there a bomb range near OP?  I have seen similar vehicles in Salt Lake City UT.
Link Posted: 9/11/2013 3:55:29 PM EDT
Ive seen a few of them pulling trailers, but most I have seen are typically escorting another truck hauling either nuclear material, or a fake load of nuclear material. Go out to east TN around on I-40 and watch for a bit. Usually the tractor trailer they are with is unmarked and armored as well. These would be the OST guys (Office of Secure Transportation). Occasionally you would see them at the Loves Truckstop there near Dandridge TN getting fuel. Seemed to be decent, friendly guys. Best I can tell most are ex-mil.

http://www.nnsa.energy.gov/aboutus/ourprograms/defenseprograms/securetransportation

From their website, "OST is responsible for the safe and secure transport in the contiguous United States of government-owned special nuclear materials. These classified shipments can contain nuclear weapons or components, enriched uranium, or plutonium. The cargo is transported in highly modified secure tractor-trailers and escorted by armed Federal Agents in other vehicles who provide security and national incident command system response in the event of emergencies.

I was thinking EMP generating vehicles there to take down Russian bombers providing show of force over the polar cap. Montana is pretty far north, after all.

OP should run up to those guys really quickly with his cellphone out and tell them he wants a picture.

If OP survives, he should then post an AAR.

I really doubt it was OST.  I'm familiar with nuke convoys.  I worked on a missile base.  They use a variety of vehicles like marked fed marshal cars and mobile mechanics trucks.

Yup. Lots of pickups with canopies, a couple of utility bodies on large truck chassis, several crew carrier trucks which is what I think OP is referring to, often used by Hotshot fire crews or as prisoner transports for the sheriff and the like. OST and prisoner transport models don't have as many windows though Never seen marked marshal vehicles in any convoy though. Maybe for a prisoner transfer, not for nukes. Then again I don't see them very often.

As a truck driver I see these government trucks on the interstate everyday. Usually they're headed east bound on 40 towards TN. When they stop for fuel, one guy fuels and several others stand guard with some heavy duty firepower.
Don't know what they're hauling, but it must be valuable or deadly.
