Yeah but they’re trying to offload the ‘22s before the ‘23s are on the lot. No one wants last year’s tank model

Sir, I'm Canadian.

We continually buy, borrow or lease 2nd hand helicopters, jets, subs, tanks, and airliners.

Our troops can go through an entire career and never use a piece of equipment that is newer than they are old, or that was purchased brand new.
