FT. Irwin is the National Training Center. US soldiers that are equipped and fight like the 'Soviets' and other Army units will 'rotate' there on a deployment and fight mock engagements. A full time OPFOR (Opposing Force). It seems that they always had huge numbers of these and other types of former 'Soviet-Bloc' equipment and arms.

27 doesn't really constitute as being "in numbers" as far as the military is concerned. But like Oldwarrior said, weapons like that at Irwin are nothing more than training aids.
