Trumpeter Military Models 1/35 Canadian Cougar 6x6 Armored Vehicle General Purpose (AVGP) Improved Version Kit
The Armored Vehicle General Purpose (AVGP) fleet is comprised of three variants: the Cougar, the Grizzly, and the Husky. The AVGP fleet entered service in 1976. A total of 195 Cougars were originally procured to equip Regular and Reserve armored units. Following the acquisition of the Coyote as a part of the 1999 Army Equipment Rationalization Plan, the Cougar fleet was reduced to 100 vehicles - to be exclusively employed by Reserve armored units. The AVGP fleet is currently undergoing a service life-extension program to increase its reliability, supportability and commonality with the Bison and Coyote fleets. Number in service: Cougar - 100, Grizzly - 274, Husky - 27.
