Yep - the TUAs were de-turreted and sent to Afghanistan to serve as APCs (with Nanuk RWS stations) - there to serve alongside the Leopards, your one stop fire support system.
Afterwards their serial numbers were applied to LAV 6s which were then outfitted with 66 Long Range Surveillance Systems to do the job of the Coyotes.
There's always a plan.
Based on the numbers I considered whether it was LRSS under a different name, but the timelines dont match up, and then I found this
separately named and funded project.
Under the Additional Mechanized Armoured Vehicle Project
To replace the LAV III capability that were not replaced by the initial LAV UP project.
The project will deliver 60 armoured platforms to the Canadian Army in order to complete the replacement of the obsolete LAV III fleet capability.
60 more new 6's, but what is this LAV III capability?
Standard (now ISC), OPV, CPV, ELAV were all already address by LAV UP
LAV TUA- LAVIII based, fielded by Canada, not addressed by LAV UP
LAV ISC- LAVIII based, fielded by Canada, not addressed by LAV UP (does a turretless APC represent a key capability that needs replacing?)
Bison Mortar- Not LAVIII based (but had overlap of usage), fielded by Canada, not addressed by LAV UP
MGS -LAVIII based, not fielded by Canada, not addressed by LAV UP
A man can hope that it's mortar and ATGM carriers (and that it hasn't been cancelled), but that whole page has been neglected since 2020
