One obvious sign from above photo is that the tanks are in visible color in contrast to the snow. If, in real life and your tanks looked as these, naked eyes can spot you ten miles away. that mean you will be dead before coming to your shooting range. Not only color, but the smoke from these diesel engine would be so easy to spot. Don"t you remember? Our ancestors burn hays on those great wall towers so that the next tower can see that enemy is pressing near that tower? These kind of diesel engine smoke give similar smoke to the enemy. I am not a solder, nor have any kind of training, but you don"t impress me that much. Training mean, well camouflaged, quick, precise on targets, and lighting strike to overwhelm the enemy, etc.
