I've been told that the only truly bone questions are the ones you don't ask, so here goes: I have read many accounts of Canadian Leopard MBTs in Afghanistan that have suggested that, if used carefully, they are very effective. I'm well aware that MBTs have a fairly hefty logistics requirement. I have however, seen accounts from Iraq [Dusty Soldiers by Richard Holmes] that have credited the tanks with attracting lots of fire that would otherwise be directed at lighter units. Given the potential pros and cons of heavy armour, is it worth sending a Squadron or even a Regiment? This question is a hypothetical, because everyone knows this government wouldn't dream of actually trying to win this fcuking stupid war when it can just send squaddies out to die instead.
