There was talk of replacing the M203 with the colt eagle, which is a newer ambidextrous 40mm launcher. As always nothing materialized
ENHANCED AMBIDEXTROUS GRENADE LAUNCHER Colt Canada EAGLE is a single shot, side-loading, direct fire grenade launcher that incorporates a double-action trigger and features an ambidextrous barrel and controls.

I am sure GDLS will be happy to continue building new LAV 6's for the CAF to replace ones being shipped to Ukraine. NATO really needs a "Monkey Model" reliable MBT with at least a 120mm to build and supply Allies like Ukraine and others. Bog Standard Leopard 2 hull with a M1A1 turret. Germany builds the hull, UK the suspension, Canada tracks and wheels, Commercial engine.
So, is that an ability that Canada SHOULD have? And if so how to go about it and what size/unit capabilities?

Right?Always trying to reinvent the wheel and fix what isn't broken.
The USMC issues the M32A1 (Milkor) grenade launcher.Right?
I’ve seen American units using something very similar (or could be the same) to the Eagle grenade launcher in the link…
But I have always wondered why more countries don’t use a multi barrel grenade launcher to literally have some death raining from above.
Hopefully more NATO-y than they were when ISIS was growing exponentially…Let's see just how NATO-y Turkey is on this one ...
Ukraine has asked Turkey to detain a Russian-flagged cargo ship believed to be carrying Ukrainian grain that Kyiv says set off from Berdyansk, a Ukrainian port occupied by Russian forces.www.rferl.org
Obviously a fake post. A real Russian press release would have claimed at least 40 teenage mutant ninja turtles eliminated.
