Canada has an army?
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 12:05:54 AM EDT
That was awesome! I wish it were that easy for every vehicle! im sure there were some pre planned properly placed clevis pins.

i'm assuming there was a special valve for the radiator.

Yeah, they don't fight but they're a hell of a lot more efficient than the UAW & CAW.

Only in a Jeep!

How many Canadians does it take to disassemble and reassemble a jeep in under four minutes?


Well now we know.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 4:27:00 AM EDT
Is there a big demand for that in Canada or something?

Since Canada's global force projection strategy depends on everything fitting into canoes, yes.

Just saw that the other day on FB.

Kinda cool, actually.

I rip on Canada a lot for siding with France and Germany by sitting out the Iraq war, but you can't slight their Army for not fighting in Afghanistan. They are punching way above their weight there.

Yeah they are...by bringing water to the real soldiers.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 7:22:00 AM EDT
Yea... looks cool, but not really impressive.


Too much stuff as been disconnected or loosened or just outright removed beforehand.


Even some important stuff... like... radiator coolant.


All in all that "jeep" couldn't be driven more than a handful of miles before it came apart or locked up the motor.

How much water can flying squirrels and a Møøse carry?
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 7:32:58 AM EDT
Probably quick-connect fittings on the radiator that don't let coolant flow from either end if it's disconnected.
Whole lotta quick-pins.

Have you been to Afghanistan? Lots of Canadian soldiers have, and they are in the fight.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 7:35:56 AM EDT
They made a lot of changes to that Jeep.

A factory CDN M38A1 or CJ-5 does not break down that easy.

Av.

I was reading this as good-natured ribbing, like friends do to one another. I guess these guys are actually just ignorant pricks.

I wish I could still get one of those old jeeps at a decent price. Then again I am not sure I want the one from the video. ^_^

That was a pretty cool display. How often do you see a military drill team (besides bands and rifle spinners) just go out and do something to entertain/inspire the civilian populace in our country. Might not be a bad recruitment tool to show off techincal skill and precision instead of commercials showing Marines fighting balrogs or whatever that lava monster was and Army comercials talking about how useful your training will be when you get out like the Army is some kind of VOTech school in ACUs.

Yup. And in my experience they are professional and well trained. I spoke with a few in Afghanistan and they were very mission oriented, reality based kinda guys. They carry the C7, which is a 20" flattop M16 with a CAR stock and an ELCAN sight. It seems to be a very practical setup.



Canada has fought hard alongside America in pretty much every little scuffle we've managed to get ourselves into. While we may disagree with some of our neighbor's internal politics, they are a staunch ally and a freer place than most nations.

Geez, they just got them a couple of years ago.

The Iltis VWs they used to have had such a rep for flipping in corners that most were torched instead of being sold off.
