The Chilean government has given green light to the procurement of a dozen second-hand Coyote 8×8 armoured scout vehicles for the navy's Marine Corps, military sources in Santiago told Jane's .

Deliveries are expected to take place during 2020, but could start in late months of 2019. The value of the transaction for the light-armoured vehicles (LAVs), coming from Canadian Armed Forces surplus, has not been publicly disclosed, as it is still being negotiated to include new engines and other spare parts.

Once again showing me that we have a completely different take on what constitutes "old" equipment.  Chile buys stuff that would be a monument in Canada.  Their navy is the same. (Where as we just operate naval stuff that should be a monument... we don't buy it that way)
