ADATS first entered service with the Air Defence Artillery School located at CFB Chatham N.
We have to be careful as to what we mean by "law", "native", "adat", and especially "land" and "land rights".
This is an old rule both of adat (28) and of the Brookes.
Canadian government officials state that an ADATS sale to Greece would require an end-use certificate forbidding a transfer to Cyprus, and that Turkey has not expressed concern over the proposed sale.
ADATS deliveries began as the Cold War wound down and by the last delivery in 1992 their main function, to protect Canadian air bases in Europe, was over.
air force C-17s or chartered Antonov-124s (or, more likely, by sea) then moving the ADATS turret and electronics to the LAV chassis makes little sense, as it offers no weight savings over the M113.
