Beginning August 30, 2023, five Light Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicles will be transported by semi-trailer flatbed from London, ON to Valcartier, QC. Members of the public may notice these vehicles on major Canadian highways. These activities are in direct support of the Light Armoured Vehicle Reconnaissance Surveillance System project that will provide the Canadian Army with its first vehicle-based, on-the-move, long-range reconnaissance capability.

The Light Armoured Vehicle Reconnaissance Surveillance System project is replacing 141 aging Coyote surveillance vehicles with 66 state-of-the-art surveillance systems, which will be fully integrated onto the Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) 6.0 platform. The first five vehicles will be received in Valcartier, QC and will undergo testing until winter 2024.

Over the next 18 months, the remaining vehicles will be delivered in a similar manner to Canadian Forces Bases in Gagetown, NB, Petawawa, ON, Valcartier, QC, and Montréal, QC.
