Except to those trying to preserve military history.

Very sad

I recently purchased an 85 Bombardier Iltis. The CFR is 86386.

I'd love to learn more about its history if someone could look it up for me in the EDR viewer.

Thank's so much in advance!

It would appear to be a 1984 model.

Thanks Rob

Would it still be possible to get a history of this?

Default Deputy Minister and Chief of the Defence Staff message 1 Dec 15

In compliance with subj order referring to unauthorized disclosure of information, I will not answer any further requests for EDR information. Not that old files on surplussed trucks are likely to compromise national security but the EDR falls within the bounds of security orders.

However, I strongly encourage all members of MLU to pay $5 and submit an Access to Information request to DND indicating that they wish to receive electronic copies of all files held on the EDR and any other appropriate sources for (insert CFR or serial number and model identification). The system is designed to respond within 30 days and the returns are likely to be more explicit than any details myself or others in the service might be able to find on coffee breaks or at lunchtime.

If it was Cdn M113A1, A2 or A3 (TLAV), the basic data will be there. But as Terry said, there was a recent DND wide reminder about passing on seemingly innocent info from the Defense Information System to the public. So unfortunately each person will now have to put in a freedom to access of information request to DND for this information. Good news is they only cost $5 and the basic data is still there (for now).

CFR is Canadian Forces Registration. A five-figure number used on the licence plate and most commonly used as the shorthand identification of one vehicle from another. Often spoken with the two-figure year of acquisition in front.

So my M38A1CDN3 is too much name for the ordinary user. It would have been 70-08876 or just eight seven six in service. The numbers have rolled over 99999 and the low numbers are being reissued on new stuff.

To answer your questions, yes the data was still available last month before the orders were passed. Should still be there, but make the Access to Information Request pronto.

It was released within the department and I could not locate the full text on-line. Perhaps it was never intended for worldwide consumption but directed to serving military and civilian personnel only.

As such, I don't think anybody either in uniform or in civilian clothing with access to the DIN will want to breech that order. As such, I am pretty sure that as it stands, Hanno or a moderator could lock this whole thread.

I do not have a photo right now because it was dark inside the carrier and I did not have a flashlight. I had just enough light to read the dataplate by eye and I wrote it down.

I can show you a pic of the CFR number however as it is painted on externally.

It was recorded by the CF as CR2. Don't ask me how I know.

Yes, double-checking might be best. If you can get a photograph to confirm helps.

Didn't I already ask if it was CR-2-whatever in an earlier post...

Rob, I think you should be on the list for a free book as you established what the vehicle was actually called.

I knew what the vehicle was called. I put M113 1/2 Lynx as this distinguishes it from the Ford Lynx wheeled recon vehicle. This term is also used to ID it on other websites and photo galleries. Also adding M113 generally gets more attention.

Then why not write on the M113? Using a fictitious vehicle name gives zero credibility to your proposed book. You are also starting out on the wrong foot if you are going to use photo galleries and websites as your source of information.
