On their way down to Fort Drum in New York, the 2 Royal Canadian Horse Artillery will be conducting a road move of military vehicles on Oct. 26 and 31.
The 2 RCHA is visiting Fort Drum, a U.S. Army base located just 48 km from the Canadian border, to conduct artillery training with American gunners. After spending several days in the U.S., the unit will return on Oct. 31. This is one of several occasions that the CAF and Fort Drum’s 10th Mountain Division have combined for a joint training.
The vehicles the military is transporting are a mix of green military transport trucks, artillery pieces, such as M-777 Howitzers and Light Armoured Vehicles. Onlookers trying to catch a glimpse of the vehicles may be disappointed because many of the vehicles will be loaded onto flatbed trucks.
The military vehicles will be moving down highways 17, 416 and 417 between Petawawa and the U.S. border.
