Back in the days of Grizzlies and Cougars, When 1RCR was the Canadian contribution to the ACE Mobile Force, How was the armour defence platoon organized and equipped?

My recollection is that they were still in M150, supposedly between 16 and 24 vehicles, deployed in pairs. TUA came after the end of the ACE commitment if I remember correctly. I don't remember seeing that many M113/M150 in London in the late 70s, or 80s.

1RCR was in London Ontario at the time, while the rest of the SSF was in CFB Petawawa
