Just curious about what happens with the six CC-115 Buffalo once the new aircraft takes over: do they get re-rolled or declared surplus?
Not re-roled. I believe they are being sold or destroyed. Will definitely leave the CF inventory.

perhaps Viking will take them, re-build and sell them back.

They are being sent to CAF Museums.  Borden, Comox, Trenton are on the list so far.

Just about the end of aircraft I worked on going to a museum.
Feeling old yet?   ;)

Not really... our C6s and Carl Gs must be over 40 years old :)

Current Small Arms - C7,C9 and C6 date from about 1987.
Carl G has been around since early 70s but that’s just a guess

About 10 years ago, I was in Les Invalides in Paris and they had a M101 Howitizer (C1 in Canadian service) on display. As there were no ropes or security cameras, proceeded to see if I remembered my training from 20 years previous and removed the breach, disassembled the firing lock. Then at my wife’s frantic begging, I put it all back.  So I have indeed seen equipment I have trained on in a museum. Sadly a slightly evolved version of this same gun is still in service.

When I was a lieutenant liaison officer in HQ 4CIBG in 1965-66, I staffed the plan for the introduction of the Carl G.

A fitting end. I was worried they would be scrapped!

One of the best weapon system we ever bought, it has certainly earned it's keep!!!

Are we using modern versions of the Carl G, or still the same ones we purchased in the 70’s??   (Then we should get this thread back on track, sorry - always wondered about this!)

We use both the M2 and the M3 version of the Carl G, with the M2 being the main stay of the fleet. That said Ive heard procurement of the M4 is coming down the pipe but I do not know details.

It does.

trade-off for the lower mounted radome....360'ish ability (great for Sfc Search etc)...limits Wx RADAR though.

But...ya nice looking paint on her!

Wx RADAR is in nose radome.  Only really care about the weather in front of us.  The Synthetic Aperature RADAR also has a Wx mode for all the other quads.

Very sharp looking in yellow - happy to see 501 ready to go.  517 will be here in January - looking forward to crawling all over her.

Oh.  Nice!  The best of both worlds...I heard a few rumours about the bells/whistles like A-Scan filtering...sounds like some nice kit.

Truth to the rumour that ZX will see this platform before 8 Wg?

I thought I read somewhere that this new bird has a better radar and EO/IR than the Aurora.

If that is true or not, doesn’t matter, I’m just happy to see another new piece of kit. 

Exciting times for the FWSAR community.

I thought the initial plan was 19 Wing, followed by 14 Wing, then 8 Wing with 17 Wing being last.
