There aren't enough categories anyway. Sailors and airmen dislike being called soldiers. If you call a Royal Marine a soldier, book yourself a bed in the nearest hospital.

Hmmmm..... very interesting.........

How about a D7 Mine Clearing/Armour Protection Bulldozer?

It is different from its civilian counterparts because it is parked outside the Jr. Ranks Mess..... and it's olive-drab.... and it has armour.... and the operator has a weapon.

Allow me to insinuate a little more: On November 10, 2004, just 6 days after the US Federal election, the Dept of Homeland Security reduced the Alert Level for the NY City, New Jersey and Washington DC areas from HIGH to ELEVATED , the same as the rest of the US. It had been at high for over two mon...

Jane's Defence Review -- Search. I'm a subscriber. When I entered "RAF Challenger AEW" it produced ASTOR.

I knew it was a Challenger, and I knew it was AEW or EW from the pods. You gave me RAF. It went pretty quickly after that.

I must have my wires crossed somewhere. What other vehicule maker is there in BC??? Well, the Western Star plant in Kelowna built the LSVW 5/4 ton replacement. (Iveco 40.10 under license from Fiat). I believe that plant has closed now. Mercedes had offered the Unimog during the 5/4 ton replacement ...

I though the CF had bough a vehicule fro oshkosh and it was a big dud. THey are in the process of getting a vehicule from Mercedes. I don't recall the army ever having an Oshkosh vehicle but it's possible. It might have been during the MLVW purchase that Oshkosh entered the competition. The Mercede...

Maybe it's just Liberal-speak but the army's focus has been on "tactical trucks". One of the issues is the ability to carry the MAVS (Mobile Arti...
