I think this would make a REALLY good map.

 

Kind of like the tank wrecks you see here and there but 1000s of them some in neat squares some in tall piles some in broken pieces. I would also change it so the 'wreck' models looked like live tanks, therefore giving a sense of paranoia as you fight there...

 

Kind of like a  fight in a hall of mirrors.

 

Is it THAT tank or the one to the left which is active (would work better if there were no outlines)

This is actually a small part of the graveyard. There's planes, helicopters and numerous other vehicles there too.

that looks pretty cool as justpin mentioned would make a good map you could replace the planes with ww2 monoplanes instead or possible korean war jet fighters. maybe a few jeeps here and there makes it look like a massive battle has been thought and your two squads are the last tanks each side has.

Voodoo - isn't your second pic the graveyard for all the contaminated military equipment used to deal with the Chernobyl accident?

Pic two is the Chernobyl graveyard: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/09/photogalleries/pollution-pictures/photo5.html 

 

I've no idea about pics 1 and 3 though 1 pretty much looks like the same graveyard as in the OP's post.

Not too sure about the ammo pic.
