I read they were also selling them very cheap, just to get rid of them.

They weren't selling them due to the demill regulations. Cut and smash. If they were deemed for the ranges then the drivelines were already removed. Anything that would leak oil is gone before blowing them up.

Those are M151A2 CDN versions. They would have been sold for scrap rather than range targets - at least I’ve never seen an M151A2 carcass on a Canadian firing range.

No doubt my M151A2 is in there somewhere in 2 pieces before it was reconstructed by some enterprising soul. Given the way they are stacked after being cut, I have no doubt that most of the salvaged Canadian “74 pattern jeeps” are “FrankenMUTTS” with non-matching front and rear halves.

Those red pieces of steel in front of the mutts appear to be pallet shelves for racks. I would bet a whole warehouse full of them was dismantled and disposed of. Racks and all. Were the Canadians as wasteful as the Americans when it came to disposing of military supplies?
