Canadian Helicopter Force by MilitaryPhotos Canadian Helicopter Force by MilitaryPhotos
Kandahar, Afghanistan. Door Gunner, Corporal Craig Wiggins, provides security from a CH-146 Griffon helicopter during an escort mission. The Canadian Helicopter Force from the Joint Task Force Afghanistan Air Wing includes eight CH-146 Griffons where their primary role is to escort transport helicopters and ground convoys, and to conduct light transport missions. The Joint Task Force Afghanistan Air Wing comprises all the Canadian Forces air assets in the southwest Asia theatre of operations. It stood up at Kandahar Airfield on 6 December 2008 with the 200 personnel deployed with the Tactical UAV Flight, the Tactical Aviation Unit and the Theatre Support Element, and grew to its established strength of 450 personnel with the purchase of CH-147 Chinook D helicopters from the U.S. Army, and the deployment from Canada of CU-170 Heron UAVs and CH-146 Griffon helicopters.

The Royal Canadian Army has some of the best snipers in the world. The U.S. Marine Scout Snipers have the best.
