ROTO‘s in former Yugoslavia
« on: September 24, 2002, 13:11:00 »

Someone mentioned the back to back roto‘s in a previous message.  And I was
just wondering if anyone had heard anything about how many more there would
be.  Friends of mine are on Roto 9 with 3 R22eR and I know that 2 R22eR has
the next one.  Can someone fill me in on who the next few are scheduled to
be with, and also who, if anyone is going to replace the RCR contingent in
Eritrea  Ethiopia.  Thanks.

Rotation Schedule is as follows:
1 Apr 01 - Op PALLADIUM Roto 10 is 3 RCR
1 Oct 01 - Op PALLADIUM Roto 9 is 3 R22eR
1 Apr 02 - Roto 10 is 2 R22eR
1 Oct 02 - Roto 11 LFWA probably 1 PPCLI
1 Apr 03 - Roto 12 LFWA unit TBC ... rumour has the LdSH RC but I
wouldn‘t count on it
1 Oct 03 - Roto 13 LFCA
1 Apr 04 - Roto 14 SQFT
You‘ll note that after LFWA completes roto‘s 11 and 12 they move from
area to area each rotation.  This is part of the CLS‘s new three year
training and operation cycle that will allow units to reconstitute,
train and deploy overseas.

Don‘t forget that Roto 11 will have a Reserve Company and Roto 12 is also
slated to have a company sized group of Reservists.

Thanks for the info Gunner, very helpful.  A few more questions then: Is it
true that 2 R22eR will be the first to use the Coyote out there I know that
2 RCR brought them to Ethiopia and also, I heard a rumour that the tours
could/were being extended to 7 or 8 months.  I know this does not confer
with the dates provided by Gunner.
Thanking you in advance,
Matt S

The last couple of rotations have already been using the Coyote to
great success.  I‘m not sure when it was introduced into theatre.  I
know Roto 0 and Roto 1 were still in Cougar and Roto 5, 6 and 7 were in
Coyote, so it was earlier than that.  It is very well thought of by
other nations within SFOR.
You may be thinking of LAV III, which is the new APC that will take the
place of M113s and Grizzlies within the Infantry Battalions.  It is
slater for introduction into theatre either this fall during roto 9.  As
a matter of fact, it was my understanding that 3 R22eR will be deployed
into theatre in LAV III complete with CADPAT uniforms, TCCCS, etc.
Anyone know the status of this?

Mathew, sorry I didn‘t see your last comment.
The last couple of tours have been seven months in duration in order to
bring them in line with the 1 Apr/1 Oct TOCA dates.  Previously the date
fell within the APS and it became very difficult to post people in and
out early enough to allow for unit cohesion to form.  Once you are able
to go on tour, you will realize why  we only send people away for six
months...it‘s very draining on a person doing the same routine day in
day out for six months away from home.

Alright. I‘ll be gone for the whole summer starting Sunday, so this should be
the last silly question you‘ll have to field for quite some time. :-
    Several of you were speaking of units being equipped with the Coyote, or
the LAVIII. Now, do the Batallions equipped with these machines take on a
mechanised infy role because the usage of the Coyotes/LAVIII? Armoured
Infantry? If not, what are the Armoured Vehicles used for? Recce?

Very true Sir,
I‘m not 100 convinced that this is the right solution.  There are many
issues that have to be worked out with the main one being the vehicle
the Reserve Force will be using.  The vehicle of the BG in Bosnia
remains the Grizzly.  The CRIC has been developed using the Iltis as a
light patrol vehicle.  This still has not been confirmed and it will be
interesting to see how it plays out.  The situation in Bosnia remains
precarious and as the recent Croatian move to a third entity and the
Serb
riots in Banja Luka have shown, SFOR may still have to use its "Hammer"
to bring parties in line.  
We are arbitrarily placing a restriction on the CO of the Canadian BG by
forcing him to take overseas an asymmetrical BG.  I don‘t agree with
this and the logic of sending over a Reserve Company has more to do with
politics than operational reasoning.  I‘m surprised that this issue has
not been discussed in this forum previously.
Having said that, there is alot of money and resources being pumped into
the CRIC.  The people they have chosen to lead the company seem to be
pretty good.  I hope it all works out and the Reserves do get the short
end of the stick again, as has happened so often in the past.
Good luck with the Worlds...I might see you there!

The Coyote was purchased for use by reconnaissance units armoured recce
sqn and recce pl within the infantry battalions.  Of interest it is a
sister vehicle to the Bison basically the same chassis and is
considered a "LAV II", or second generation light armoured vehicle.  The
first generation LAV is the Grizzly/Cougar chassis.  
LAV III is the prime mover of infantry sections and provides an enhanced
level of firepower, mobiity and protection on the battlefield in
comparison to the M113 and Grizzly it has/will replace.  It is my
understanding that there will be FOO, TOW, and pioneer variants,
however, I have not seen them.  
Bisons the LAV II will be focused on CPs, Mortars, and ambulances.
Some Grizzlies will be retrofitted as MRTs.
Hope this helps.
Infantry battalions are still considered to be mechanized infantry.

"LAVIII will be the prime mover of infantry sections..."
That‘s what I wanted.
