E-8's are only any good at finding tanks actually conducting combat operations (i.e. moving) in a recognisable formation (remember this is a cold war platform, although they are working on replacing it). If you've got a lone tank parked in the local market until ISIS fancy a pop at some Kurds JSTARS isn't going to find it for you (Well it'll show up as a blip on the SAR scan, along with a thousand others just like it). Once you've actually got it trundling about blowing holes in the local village, then it'll get spotted and an airstrike package will (hopefully) get designated.

If you want to find stored/camo'd/etc ground assets you need special forces on the ground to call it in.
