Default Current Canadian Army Radio Question

If you have a failure in a radio today that required higher eschelon workshop repairs, are you issued a ‘loner’ until yours is fixed and returned, or is your dead set exchanged outright and you never see the original radio again, even if repaired?

Oh Hell...make it two questions. Would the current process be consistent with processes in effect in the 1960’s?

Generally speaking yes. Mission first is a mantra which means a box is a box is a box. The serial number is irrelevant to the one originally issued. To answer your second question, no difference.

Thanks, Terry. That helps make sense of the maintenance system.
