    Very good video with cool music!Thanks djiti!

    I have a question. Badger and Kodiak have a machine gun in front like many tanks had in WW II? Is it true or is it something else? (red circle)

    (I know I put this into Todays Pics for 4th of May as well, also wanted to put it here for Canadians to easily find them here).

    Canadian Navy Centennial Parade.
    Victoria, British Columbia.

    3,500+ Sailors and Airmen marched through the city of Victoria.

    A quick smoke before the Parade.


    Minutes before the beginning of the parade.

    Yes, the Taurus ARV and the Badger AEV have a hull mounted C6 GPMG.
    However, its generally not mounted and covered up by the uparmour kits, and the space where the gunner would have sat is used for extra stowage.

    Sounds like hot meals are a luxury. As a civilian, I take it for granted.

    These were after a few days of IMP's, our QM brought out hayboxes (big green insulated bins) with hot rations in them for us.
