Armoured Heavy Support Vehicle System (AHSVS)

Panjwa'i District, Afghanistan 17 October 2010

A convoy of Armoured Heavy Support Vehicle Systems (logistics vehicles used to transport equipment, fuel and other material), part of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group, during recent operations in the volatile Panjwa’i and Zhari Districts of Kandahar Province. These vehicles move equipment that is critical to the conduct of prolonged operations and have a significant role during all operations.

In close cooperation with Afghan National Security Forces, 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group provides security by conducting counter-insurgency operations throughout Panjwa’i District located south-west of Kandahar City. The Battle Group conducts partnered operations with the 2nd Kandak of the 1st Brigade, 205 Corps of the Afghan National Army, Afghan National Police and the Panjwa’i District Governor in order to advance governance, reconstruction and security in the area.

Operation ATHENA is Canada’s participation in the International Security Assistance Forces in Afghanistan. Focused on Kandahar Province in southern Afghanistan since the fall of 2005, Op ATHENA has one over-arching objective: to leave Afghanistan to Afghans, in a country that is better governed, more peaceful and more secure.

District de Panjwayi, Afghanistan 17 octobre 2010

On aperçoit un convoi de véhicules de soutien blindés lourds (véhicules logistiques utilisés pour transporter de l’équipement, du carburant et d’autre matériel) qui font partie du groupement tactique du 1er Bataillon, The Royal Canadian Regiment, lors d’opérations récentes dans les districts instables de Panjwayi et de Zhari, dans la province de Kandahar. Ces véhicules transportent du matériel essentiel aux opérations de longue durée et jouent un rôle important durant toutes les opérations.

En étroite collaboration avec les Forces de sécurité nationale afghanes, le groupement tactique du 1er Bataillon, The Royal Canadian Regiment, assure la sécurité en menant des opérations de contre-insurrection un peu partout dans le district de Panjwayi, au sud-ouest de la ville de Kandahar. Le groupement tactique mène des opérations en partenariat avec le 2e Kandak de la 1re Brigade, le 205e Corps de l’Armée nationale afghane, la Police nationale afghane et le gouverneur du district de Panjwayi afin d’améliorer la gouvernance, la reconstruction et la sécurité dans le secteur.

L’opération Athena constitue la participation du Canada à la Force internationale d’assistance à la sécurité (FIAS) en Afghanistan. Concentrée dans la province de Kandahar, dans le sud de l’Afghanistan, depuis l’automne 2005, l’opération Athena poursuit un objectif essentiel : laisser l’Afghanistan aux Afghans et en faire un pays mieux gouverné, plus paisible et plus sûr.
