Soldiers from Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians), an armoured unit within 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group, will take part in an exercise in Brazil starting Oct. 30, the Canadian Army says. The unit, based in Edmonton, will be participating in Exercise STEELE LEOPARDO 2016. That exercise runs until November 12.
“During the Exercise, participants will be focusing on information and knowledge exchange with their counterparts from the Brazilian Army Armoured Corps,” the Canadian Forces noted in a news release. “Armoured training techniques include performing direct fire and surveillance tasks, as well as target acquisition and reconnaissance.”
