We have had many conversations about Canadian "What If" AFVs and what they could look like.

Are there any Modern Canadian Vehicles that you are happy that Canada did not buy or didn't even consider buying?

Ya, I think DND hit the refund button on that purchase just in time!

You know it looks like a cool vehicle...and probably would have been very effective if there was a war at a Defence Exhibition.

My pick would be the Bobcat APC. It would have been an epic failure compared to the M113 series.

The other AVGP contender. While I know a lot of folks didn't like the Grizzly because it wasn't an M113, I'm not sure that this beast would have fared better.

Good selection Bob,

I have a pic of the trial Urutu with a Scorpion turret in it. The hull reminds me of an M20 Greyhound on steroids.
