Default Personnel Carrier

When traveling, we stopped at this information center which featured a personnel carrier. So, it was safe to say that I was going to go nuts... here are the best pics of the "shoot".

Your photos have a very nice artistic flare on an interesting subject. Where in Canada was this located?

Thanks. I'm never sure how to interpret my shots really, having only family members look at them (they have to say WOW right? )

In any case, here is where the military vehicule is situated. It was in Oromocto, New Brunswick, Canada

I think this is technically an Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle rather than an Armored Personnel Carrier. Specifically it was called Lynx in Canada and the Netherlands: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynx_re...ssance_vehicle .

Thanks for sharing the photos, sent me off on some interesting research.

I'm in no way a military buff, so I'm not surprised I made the mistake. Good research on your part, really interesting find (as I'm from Canada).

At least you didn't call it a tank as many alleged journalists do I usually confine myself to identifying aircraft (http://forums.steves-digicams.com/tr...airport-2.html) but it was a nice challenge to identify a fairly rare armored vehicle.
