Oshkosh M-ATV (TAPV version)
Couple Hummvee variants

I took a few photos and I put them here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/12841253@N03/ They aren't great. The sun was really strong and I didn't have a lot of time.

Rob,

Those pics are fantastic. They totally clarified some of the details I was trying to figure out on the glacis plate of the 2A4 CAN!

Thanks for taking them and posting them.

You're very welcome. I was just hoping the photos would turn out as the sun was right in my eyes the whole time and I couldn't check the display to see if they turned out. Within minutes of posting, my stats on Flickr went through the roof, as they always do when I post on this site.

TAPV might be announced as early as tomorrow.

The 2A4 pictures make the front end look oddly scrunched because the front part of the side skirts are loose. Kinda looks like they drove into Godzilla. Not complaining at all--- the photos are all very helpful and appreciated. Good looking pooch too!
Cheers,
Roy

It looked like they could be attached in one of two positions. I had a close look at the 2A4 and the retaining pins (?) looked like they were hiked up into a higher position, which raised & angle the front skirts.

Nice pics BTW - much better than mine!

Did the TAPV and RCMP TAV winners get announced yet?

I finally got around to registering...DND computers were't loading the CANSEC page.

Who's going this year?
