Within these pages we will endeavor to illuminate Canadian military operations and exercises through the lens of the vehicles and equipment used in them by Canadians. Topics will be primarily those commonly overlooked in the larger histories and will allow additional detail to be presented relating to the materiel culture in use at the time. Data sets with serialization will be included wherever possible along with a brief narrative of the subject relating pertinent facts. Images and anecdotes will also be included wherever possible. 

Subjects will be added as time and research materials allow. Please use the menu selection within the drop down at the top of the page to view individual entries. If there is something we haven’t included that you would like to see, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
