Going back? It would be great to see a walk-around of the LAV-UP. Some interesting stuff there, thanks for the pics.

and I'm feeling like that time Mister T came to the mall, and I put off seeing him. And when I finally went to the mall, he was gone. And I asked the security guard when Mr T would be back, he said he didn't know.

I can't believe Canada wants to upgrade to yet another level. Or do they?

Cheers

I believe it was the Swiss Mid-Life Upgrade called RUAG. There was a Canadian company called Clermark that represents various firms trying to get Canadian business and I believe it was at their booth. I think they also represent the company trying to sell the SF vehicle that I posted a photo of.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I like the approach they have taken to provide a level of protection for the gunner's sight with the slats on the turret front covering the opening...super simple and effective.

Lot's of life left in the Leopard 2s for many decades to come!

RUAG must be trying to catch up since they didn't get the AEV contract with their Kodiak.

I managed some Lav-Up photos even with the no photography sign inside the back ramp. For some reason it had the old bench seats installed.

I noticed a couple of different trucks there are they a proposed prototype to replace the ML and HL trucks? I've seen the International's but they must be still thinking on replacing the aging ML's at least?
