    Good luck on course, and with any luck you'll end up back here or in Edmonton. I know lots of guys at my unit that were either local or from Winnipeg managed to come back.

    Thank you for the read!! But I like the name "MapleHawk" better than "CanHawk," just saying.

    He does have somewhat of a point. Question is whether Canada will be able to regain the talent necessary to build a fighter​ craft. There's a lot of competition on that market, not only for customers but for talent.

    Traveling down Number 1 west of CFB Shilo, out of the corner of my eye I saw a flat bed truck truck transporting one or two armored vehicles. I expected LAVs or Coyotes or what have you, but to my suprise they looked like CV90s. Canadian Defence Review (And now that I look, Wikipidia) said that Canada is evaluating it, but I had heard nothing of it since I had read that.

    A lot of the things in CDR seem pretty unrealistic for Canada, so I was supprised to see these. Very neat to see em out here.
