More about the Leica KE-7A military camera:

"It was manufactured in Canada in the early 1970s especially for the US Army, with only 505 units produced. Of these, the military acquired only 460 units which had engravings to indicate they were army issue. The rest were put on sale in the civilian market. While it essentially had the mechanisms of the Leica M4, the Leica KE-7A was built with a modified shutter and better sealing for dust and shooting in extremely cold conditions."
