Default Potentially useful for T2K

Here's a little tidbit I saw on Wikipedia's BMP-1 pages, under "BMP-1 Operators"

"The Ontario Regiment Museum has an operational BMP 1."

I haven't looked anything more on the entry yet, but it is interesting, and could have a T2K application.

According to their facebook page, they added it to the collection in early 2014.

For something further afield and a little closer to the Cold War timeline...
Back in 1997, Australia took charge of the cargo from an An-124 aircraft carrying equipment bound for Bouganville to support Sandline supplied mercenary forces who were going to be operating in the area.
Included in the haul were two fully operational Mi-24 helicopters (of at least D model or better from what I understand)
The two helos were (and still were as of 2014) being stored at RAAF base Tindal in the Northern Territory, from the report, they were to be disposed of in 2015

Edit:
The links I forgot to add

April 1997...
That could just work into the ANZAC book. Timeline allows for it I think...

Can see it now - SASR being inserted into Indonesia in Mi-17s supported by Mi-24s all repainted in Indonesian colours.
Another option is send them to Korea...
