CF Engagement Opportunity

CAF Engagement Tech Talks episode on Wednesday, 16 November 2022, will feature a LAV 6 crew, with the Infanteers from 2 PPCLI who crew it, and some of the technicians who maintain it. They will be showcasing some equipment typically used during mounted Infantry operations.

Infantry are a core component the Combat Arms Teams, which also include Armour, Artillery, and Engineers.

This double-header will introduce cadets to the importance of teamwork within the CAF, as the Infantry cannot conduct their missions if their equipment is not serviceable. The Infantry presenter will discuss some of the many potential tasks Infanteers can be expected to do, and the teamwork required to accomplish the mission.

Technicians will also be present to discuss what it is they do to keep the LAV serviceable. The presenters will discuss their career, training, typical deployments the unit has been involved with, and showcase some equipment and tools of the trade. The overall message, as always, is CAF Teamwork and Safety.

The episode will go live on MS-TEAMS Wednesday, 16 November 2022, at 1930 CST (Winnipeg time), 1830 (Mountain time), for setup & audio checks. Cadets may log in anytime after the episode comes online, but the presentation will not start until 2000 (CST).

Runtime is approx. 30-40 minutes to fit into corps/sqn UTP. This presentation will be two back-to-back episodes, cadets may choose either, or both.

Corps/Sqn staff may forward the link per your CO/ Trg O direction, participation is open to all NW region cadets, not just those parading on Wednesday 16 Nov.

Please encourage participating cadets to use the MS-Teams ‘Chat’ feature to ask questions. This is an opportunity for cadet interaction with the many occupations  not normally portrayed in the popular media.

To reduce latency, cadet mics & cameras should be kept off. Please type your questions using the “Chat” feature.
