    You clearly haven`t had great enemy force. I spent an entire summer as enemy force with about 15 other guys in 2016 and we hit them hard. We had c6, c7, c9, all the simulated explosives as well as grenades, land mines, ied`s and suicide vests loaded with compressed air and baby powder.

    TAPVs. Different beast. Most of the TAPV roll overs were due to driver inexperience because its a new fleet, and people are trying to drive them like LAVs.

    That story didn't say much about fires, but fires aren't unique to TAPV either. The LUVW Milcot, also known as the Milverado, was known to spontaneously ignite and burn a crisp in the parking lot due to bad wiring.

    As an aside, I wonder if the Forces would be interested in purchasing a few WK181-C rifles, for use in opposing forces training exercises where you need live fire from 7.62x39 mm armed opponents? I'm sure they've got some sample AKs for this at bases, but I'm the Op Force would likely love a 7.62 rifle they could throw their C7 accessories on.
    No, the forces would not be interested in buying anything that doesn't come from Colt Canada, as CC is the holder of the munitions supply program contract and all small arms sales goes through them.

    Second, live from from armed opponents? You think Op For shoots live rounds at the good guys in training? For about a hundred reasons, nope.

    Yes, the main training centres have AKs. most of them will tell you that 7.62x39 ammo is hard to come buy, so more weapons using that cartridge is not going to be high on the priority list.
