Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
How does the smoke charge work? I'm guessing it isn't a projectile fired from the main gun. Is it more along the lines of a smoke grenade/canister type deal?The tank can drive and the turret/gun can move, but it cannot be able to fire. Some people have modified them to fire paint-balls or a smoke charge, but that was done by installing something in the place of the cut out breach.
I think that this never went beyond the stage of being a discussion document. It is getting quite old. Also, some points in there lead me to believe that this would meet fierce industry resistance.Re: Importation of Military (Historical) Vehicles. I just found this old doc on the web. I don't know if it has been enacted, but since none of us knew in advance.....Well you know the story. Please tell me that I'm wrong. I want an M-35 A2 W/W.
I just got into the hobby, and my MP has already had his ear bent off a couple of times by me....something to do about gun control. Doesn't that meant the skill to hit what you're aiming at and the discretion not to do it, unless your life (or that of anyone under your protection) is in immenent danger. (Sec 25 Criminal code of Canada).
At that time it mean sending $$$$B of money to political party hacks, to spend at home for more snivel servants in their home riding!
OK no more rants.
Let me know if these restrictions are now in force. Can we register previously unknow ( to them) Vehicles.... Thanks Guys!
Let's have your feed back and current experiences. This may radically change our hobby!
Gas city metal auto recyclers in Medicine hat Alberta has lots of all kinds of things call and ask they have lots of hard to find things such as para-scopes lolNope I didn't miss your post. Problem is that we have already raided all the junk/scrap yards in our area
Are you the same Law as the gent in Ottawa and if you are have you paid back your Dad for the Iltis(he-he)First post!
I'm from Ontario but currently serving in New Brunswick with the CF. I own an Iltis with m101 trailer. Happy I came across this site, found quite a few useful threads so far.
Boy you have to come back East and I don't mean into Alberta. In Ontario there ar a lot of Deuce owners and even 5 tons. We own 3 MLVWs, 1 x M35A2, 1 x109A3 and a M816 wrecker. Check our website MilitaryTrucks.ca Website , it is a free site run by my son. I like you deuce avatar.Vancouver here. Parked in an alley in Kitsilano.
I'de love to start or be a part of a network here. I understand there is a group that does all terrain road trips around Hope and Abbotsford with Unimogs, but have yet to hear about any other deuces in the area. I've seen a few cucv's, but thats all. I do know of 2 owners of Canadian deuces, but the older ones, which are the only ones available are not quite as impressive as the american models.
Just reading this post 6 months later, i saw your M43 at the Muster Aand I am looking forward to seeing it in Aug 2011. Strectcher can be bought at Safety Supply houses and are usually cheaper than surplus items. If you need anything post it on our site for free www.militarytrucks.caJust an update since I started this thread a while ago. I now own an M43 Canadian Ambulance, I found it just a few kms from my house sitting in some guys yard. I guess I was in the right place a the right time. We were replacing a culvert just own the road from the guys place and my boss happened to see it and told me about it so I went to see the guy at the end of the day.
Now talk about being in the right place at the right time, well it is kind of unfortunate on the owners part but hey. When I spoke with the guy he told me all about it, where it came from, how long he had it etc etc. When we started talking about price it got interesting, we have all seen what vehicles have been going for on the open market and I didn't want to pay big bucks for it and then the owner mentioned the big "D" word. YES he is going through a divorce and needs to get rid of it. Now I'm not one to take advantage of someone else's misfortune but I knew the price was going to be lower than normal and so it was.
So i paid for it, call my friend who owns a towing company and had them come with a tilt and load and hauled her home! I have since pressure washed and blew out along with removing by had birds nests etc, but for now it's going to stay the way it is until after the MILITARY MUSTER show here in Essex County. Mike the Show coordinator and I have agreed to have the M43 on display at the show as is so people get an example of the condition the vehicles are in before the restoration process starts.
It's killing me not being able to start the restoration but that's ok, in due time then its full speed ahead!!
Anyone know of the location of stretchers or other parts for the back compartment etc for the ambulance?
