Canadian Submarine HMJS Ojibwa

A Cold War submarine was purchased by a local military museum, put on display, and opened for tours. The guides are very well-informed about the history of this particular sub and the Canadian duties that it was used for.

[Brian, 11/08/2016]

True story: the museum only wanted an army tank to put on its lawn, but Canada didn't have any tanks available. It did, however, have a full-size submarine. So the sub ended up here.
