Last week Defence IQ, the international online community for military personnel and the defence community, launched its first learning centre for armoured vehicles.
And to kick off the International Armoured Vehicles blog, we have the latest podcast from the Defence IQ learning centre on The Canadian Department of National Defence Plans to Upgrade the Leopard 2 and LAV III tanks.
Lt. Col. Alan Bolster, Armoured Fighting Vehicle Requirements Section Head at the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND), discusses the form which the upgrades will take and Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan. Listen to Lt. Col. Alan Bolster discuss in person on the newly launched Armoured Vehicles learning centre.
What do you think of Canada’s approach? What are your thoughts on their enhancements from survivability through to counter-IED features?
