Projects-Canadian Forces Base Petawawa Light Armoured Vehicles III
Twin Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) facilities have been constructed at Canadian Forces Bases in Ontario and Quebec, Canada. Each features a 7500 ft2 MatrixAir™ transpired collector providing up to 50000 CFM of fresh air to the buildings. The facilities house LAV IIIs in a temperature and humidity-controlled area where mechanics will be able to perform maintenance within the facility, as well as “kitting” of the vehicles for deployment preparation.
