Canadian LAV-III

Canadian LAV-III

This is one of the Canadian LAV-IIIs we worked alongside during the last few weeks of operations before we started packing up to head home. They are the same basic platform as our Stryker vehicles. These ones all mounted the 25mm Bushmaster cannon, among other various and sundry implements of destruction. One of them was kind enough to give our Humvee a nudge when we had become stuck in the mud and the column was leaving us behind. Since RPGs were landing less than 100m to our rear, it was a matter of some urgency and excitement.

This was taken on or about Thanksgiving Day 2006. We blew the crap out of some bad guys and then went back to base for turkey and stuffing.
