It's amazing how just in the past three or four years so much has changed in the TI hardware field.  Before the TIPI came into all our lives, many of us had our TI's doing WiFi to the BBS with a UDS-10 and a Vonets WiFi bridge, similar to this arrangement...

And before the FinalGROM came in and took over, we were still using individual cartridges like these...

It's all been an amazing blur these past few years!

Funware cartridges.

And the label on Rabbit Trail is one that we recreated to replace a really gnarly one that came with the cartridge. . .

Some odd cartridges (which consist of some of the colored-case Scott Foresman cartridges, the Milliken prototypes, and a Killer Caterpillar cartridge).

The Video Controller was in production--both as a sidecar (I have one) and as a PEB card (I'm still trying to get one). The important thing to note with these is that they had Class A FCC certification, which meant that they were not usable in a home environment (that reqiured Class B certification). A lot of school districts and businesses apparently had them, but very few actually survived. There are several different compatible VCRs (each with a special cable set) and at least one compatible Laser Disk player. Note also that the PEB version isn't complete unless it has a cable attached to the connector on the back that leads to a set of video connectors for the VCR cables to terminate to. These connector blocks are much harder to find than the cards are. . .
I have mentioned this in the past on a previous thread about it. I saw one in action at the recruitment center when I joined the Army. It was used to train recruits with a multi media presentation. The one at the recruiting station had the previously mentioned laser disc player. It was the sidecar version.and the software was on a cartridge. You answered questions and it would play a video based on your answer.

One wonders if any of those cartridges or laser discs survive. . .but the fact that recruitment centers had them actually helps explain the somewhat large (relative to the p-Code box) number of survivors. The military doesn't always just trash stuff when they are done with it, they sell it as surplus, so the survival rate is higher. Businesses often just write things off and drop it into a dumpster.

The radio I used in the 90's was also used in the Korean war, so you are correct about the army not throwing anything away.

We also used Commodore 64's for rifle training, it was a whole kit with a mock M16 that had a DB9 plug.

Speaking of the Video Controller, here's some pictures of the sidecar version.

 

Nice!  It's good to see one in good shape!
