MGS is worthless. Topheavy. Stay away from it.

The New Canadian Military does not have any M1128 Mobile Gun Systems in our inventory. They where all stripped for spare parts to fix our fleet of LAV IIIs, and its 105mm Guns are reused in the Leapord C2 fleet.

I think the PM is thinking of brand new LAV 3's built as a joint venture by GD Land Systems in Victoria for the KDF.
One FOV to cover everything we need in a modern easy to maintain fleet.
IFV, recce, anti-armour, mortar, command and MGS. It could do anything, we wouldn't need tanks (PM's quote).
They could be built in the South of the Island then driven the short distance to the North for completion.
Karma-Naskis will manufacture and fit the ash trays.

If you want an MGS, you will need a different chassis. The LAV III has the same problem the current chassis does... too narrow, too light, not stable enough.

Unfortunately for the Karma-naskis PM running in the election, he may want to look somewhere else other then New Canada, as GD Land Systems-NC has declined to take part in this "joint" venture with the KDF. Citing it would give the company a bad name to deliver their LAV IIIs to "Pot Smokers".

The ROD has one Stryker infantry battalion (20th infantry) and they do employ the M1128 MGS alongside the infantry carriers. It is not suitable for armored warfare, but it has proved very useful as an infantry support weapon: engaging infantry strongpoints, blowing holes in walls, etc. In our opinion it’s not a good replacement for tanks though.

Right now, the 20th Infantry Battalion – Call Sign Mongoose – is deployed to Panama and they brought a company’s worth of Strykers with them. The remaining Strykers are still at North Barracks in the ROD with a small rear detachment. You are welcome to send some guys over to the ROD if you would like to take some M1128s for spin and bust some caps on the tank range (just don’t try to shoot them cross-carriage). Or you can drop by Panama and try them out in the mud and rain or a much wetter climate.

Karma may want to go to Italy to see their mobile gun system the B1 Centauro, Im sure that will be enough to support the KDF's needs.

General Malaise Chief of Defence KDF. "Ivor what that heck is the PM on about, we did not ask for the MGS, did we?
I looked at it ten years ago, it could not make it to the test area without a tow back then."
Right Honorable Mr I.Plann Minister of Defence. "No need to worry old chap, he has an election to win. Politics and all that, your new MBT's are safe."
'Well thank goodness for that, for a moment I was thinking he was going to stop smoking."
"Good one, that would be the day, he said he didn't inhale. (laughing) No I think he is about to announce the BC Defence deal, makes for a good photo etc."
"And the Kermode (Spirit Bear) project, any news?" inquires the General.
"Signed and sealed, first batch will be on the way soon".
"Excellent Ivor, I knew you would keep him inline, pop in for a Brandy later"

The CoC is conducting Cabinet meeting, one Associate Under-Secretary proposed an Embargo on Kamanski. Expressed interest to improve relationship with Canada as important. Also much larger economy, will need to work with Canada more in the future.
Discussion ensued on the idea, even though it surprised everyone.
The Asst Under-Secretary mentioned how apologetic Canada was a week ago with training program operation. In the end, there was not conclusion to set up, implementation of an embargo. But extend invitation to improve trade with Canada.
This was approved.

A trade embargo on Karmanaskis, this should be interesting, at least then it would get rid of the Cannabis.

The PM of Karma-Naskis today announced the creation of two "Free Trade Zones".
One next to the Karma International Airport and the second as part of the new container port in Alberni.
"Some may be talking of embargo but Karma-Naskis is open for business."
When asked about the pending lay offs of 120 people at the Bodgeit & Conem Engineering works he replied.
"BC Engineering had invested heavy in the hopes of a joint deal with New Canada to build 8x8 APC's for the KDF, I think it just goes to show we need to look after our own defence industry."
"BC has done a great job over the years keeping our Military rolling, we need to keep that skill here."
"There will be an update tomorrow and yes the KDF will be getting new APC's don't you worry."

New Canada Sent out a Reply to BC Engineering saying, " Unfortenely, New Canada has declined taking part in a Joint deal with BC Engineering in producing 8x8 APC's for the KDF, citing that the embargo aginest Karmanaskis will be imposed."

The Karma-Naskis PM out on the re-election trail today has released details of new jobs and an increase in defence spending.
On a visit to the BC Engineering plant it was confirmed that the company had been taken over by the Government, it now owning 75% of the stock.
All 120 jobs are safe and new jobs are promised. A new APC/ICV for the KDF will be built at the site.
Design work is well advanced using some of the failed NC joint project as a starting point.
The New vehicle will have four axles and weigh about 20 tons, it will be known as the 4/20.

The PM also announced that the Army's new IFV will enter service ahead of schedule.
Members of the KDF have been out of the Country training on the new IFV.
The first batch is due to be home and in front line service by the end of September.

A multi year deal for new logistic/transport trucks is also to be signed with a Monaco based company.

So the Karma-naskis and New Canada just split Vancouver Island and that's it? Where's the rest of Canada? Did you turn it in to an uninhabitable wasteland?

No The rest of Canada does exist but in my own thread, this thread only the southern portion of Vancover island is under our jurisdiction, the northen half is Karmanaskis.
