C SQUADRON, 3rd BATTALION ROYAL 22ième RÉGIMENT BATTLE GROUP, KANDAHAR PROVINCE, AFGHANISTAN

 

(Artwork was created in 2007)

 

This image was inspired by the soldiers of B Squadron Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) during the first deployment of Canadian tanks into combat since the Korean War. B Squadron, equipped with Leopard C2 tanks, joined The 1 Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group in Zahre District, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan on 2 December 2006. As this image depicts, the Canadian tanks worked closely with battle group infantry and engineers to breach complex terrain and disrupt Taliban insurgents through the use of superior firepower and mobility, thereby improving the stability of Afghanistan.

Du 28 août 2007 au 10 mars 2008, les soldats de l’escadron C ont conduit des opérations décisives contre les Talibans dans

les districts de Zhari, Panjwayi et d’Arghandab. Le tableau dépeint la transition du char Léopard 1 C2 vers le char Léopard 2 A6M ainsi que la mobilité et la puissance d’une équipe de combat. Fidèle à l’esprit de la devise du Corps Blindé Royal Canadien, « WORTHY », l’escadron C était

composé de soldats provenant du Lord Strathconas’s Horse (Royal Canadian), du 12e Régiment Blindé du Canada et du Royal Canadian Dragoons en plus des Régiments du King’s Own Calgary Regiment, du British Columbia Regiment et du British Columbia Dragoons.
