Американской армии досталось довольно большое количество советской военной техники. Часть из неё была захвачена США и их союзниками в ходе конфликтов на Востоке, часть продана бывшими союзниками СССР. Образцы этой военной техники не только изучались американскими специалистами, но и позже стали регулярно использоваться на учениях американской армии.
