Canada Testing Big TOW Missile System On Little MRZR Buggies

Anyone know if DND ever applied its own designation to the Polaris MRZR-D? Or did the 36 x MRZR-D remain undesignation trial vehicles?

BTW, that C16 translated from Canuckian is the Heckler & Koch GMG (aka CASW, Close Area Suppression Weapon).

If Canada procured that Polaris rocket-armed variant, the weapons fit would be C9A1 (for M240B Minimi) and CVR7-PG (for 70mm laser-guided rockets).

I wonder when it was changed from Company Area SW to Close Area? When I first heard about it in 2002-ish, it was definitely Company.

Graeme: The CASW acronym changed early in 2008 when plans shifted away from issuing these AGLs at the Company level. So, I guess NDHQ decided to keep the acronym while changing the name. And 'Close' was close enough ... sorry  :P

Boo!

Also, I think if CASW as still very new, and realize that 2002 was 21 years ago.  :o
