Well, I am going to give six out of ten to my local newspaper here in Montreal (The Gazette) for effort.

They have a picture of a LAV wading through water in the flood area, but called it a TAPV in the caption. There are TAPV deployed too, as I have seen them in the newscasts. So I give them marks for trying to get it right ... and not calling it a tank  [:D.

At least they didn't call it a "Coast Guard Tank"...   ;D
