CASEVAC capabilities in the CAF?
« on: March 23, 2008, 14:52:55 »
I hope the title isnt misleading, I am simply wondering if we have the ressources to support Casevac.

if not what are we preparing/planning to do? and what are we presently doing when we have injured soldiers in the field.

I understand that we utilize american Dustoffs, but I cant find any information on our own capabilities? Is this where the procurement of Chinooks becomes so important either to support this cause or to free up Griifons?

Hope this isnt a broad subject, and looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say.

It is a very broad question.  When you say in the field, do you mean here at home?  Or are you talking about in theatre?  They are two very different places with two very different answers.

Don't know how long I want to keep playing this game...
