Leopard 2A4M

Panjwa’i District, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan 05 Feb 2011. Leopard 2A4M on road move. A Leopard 2A4M from 12e Régiment blindé du Canada (12eRBC) conducts a road move on Route HYENA (Panjwa’i Road) in the Horn of Panjwa’i. The Leopard 2 is providing security to an Afghan construction team that is widening and improving the existing dirt road, turning it into an all-weather paved road that is eight metres wide and 18 kilometres long. This road will help residents access economic centres for selling their produce, have better access to government services such as education and health care, and bring issues to the District Governor in a timely and efficient manner. Task Force Kandahar will continue robust security operations in conjunction with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Afghan National Security Forces, and its coalition and civilian partners in order to eliminate insurgent violence and set the conditions for successful and sustainable governance, development and peace in Southern Afghanistan.

District de Panjwayi, province de Kandahar, Afghanistan 5 février 2011. Un Leopard 2A4M du 12e Régiment blindé du Canada (12 RBC) effectue un déplacement par voie de terre sur la route Hyena (chemin de Panjwayi), dans la Corne de Panjwayi. Le Leopard 2 assure la sécurité d’une équipe de construction afghane qui travaille à élargir et à améliorer le chemin de terre actuel pour le transformer en une route revêtue carrossable en tout temps d’une largeur de huit mètres et d’une longueur de 18 kilomètres. Cette route permettra aux habitants de se rendre aux centres économiques pour vendre leurs produits agricoles, d’avoir un plus grand accès aux services gouvernementaux, tels que l’éducation et les soins de santé, et de porter des questions à l’attention du gouverneur du district en temps opportun et avec efficacité. En collaboration avec le gouvernement de la République islamique d’Afghanistan, les Forces de sécurité nationale afghanes (FSNA) et ses partenaires civils et de la coalition, la Force opérationnelle – Kandahar continuera de mener des opérations de sécurité vigoureuses pour éliminer la violence insurrectionnelle, établir les conditions pour une gouvernance et un développement durables et instaurer la paix dans le Sud de l’Afghanistan.
