Canada's newest member of the Leopard 2 family of vehicles has started stretching its claws.

I like the kit and I like the name that honours Canada's indigenous tank.

Personally one old tradition I can get behind is the animal names for vehicles, Lav 6 doesn't have the greatest ring.

Well, Lav 3 was called "Kodiak" but it never seemed to stick.

Question; does putting the throttle all the way down automatically constitute ramming speed on this vehicle?

Nice to see our engineers are still on the hoof though, but we'll have to be careful to sort the sheep from the goats as far as the parts system goes, or we'll all get the horns.

I want my job back.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats
