    Air Force maintainers are getting new ‘janitor grey’ coveralls

    But oh no! They were not just office wear. Shortly after they were introduced we had a project to make replacement 4" blank for HMCS Haida as the brass brass was getting too old and battered to keep reloading. Samsonite provide some cartridge cases made from a variety of plastics. After a...

    Air Force maintainers are getting new ‘janitor grey’ coveralls

    As someone who wears coveralls when not working at a bench or in the office, why would you want to wear coveralls home? Mine only come home for washing, and I could get that done at work if I cared. They are designed to get dirty, contaminated, and not very pleasant. Especially air force...

    Those are aircraft practice bombs.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I've had to work with the flight planners to route planes around countries that don't allow DG over flight, not too uncommon. As far as the AT weapons go, they could be shipping off NLAW as that is their current disposable AT weapon- pretty pricey though and 8 years of shelf life is an eternity...

    RMC - bachelor straight into master program

    I know of one who who was under para 12 of the CFAO (received a Rhodes Scholarship or equivalent) and went right into their Masters after RMC. I also know of one who was posted to DRDC right after graduation and then went back a couple of years later for PG, research, and instructional duties...

    Paid Education: General Questions

    So you'll take a trade you don't like rather than maybe get what you want because you might end up in a trade you think is ok?

    Paid Education: General Questions

    Yep, missed the Prince George one. One question, why would you not apply for STEP if there are still positions available and instead chose a trade you are "meh" about? You still have two other choices. What would reaction be if you wait a year for a job offer and have Imagery offered? I...

    Paid Education: General Questions

    In the website the directory says the BCIT program is Not Suitable under NCMSTEP which is the program where you enlist, do basic, and go to school. It is suitable if you've already done it on your own and want to join. In the PDF it says it is. Due to these discrepancies you should talk to a...

    British Military Current Events

    In 29 years the CAF never gave me a C8 or a SMG. Weight wise a kg didn't matter to me as a loggie. Being able to climb in and out of vehicles and seacans. The shorter, more easily stowed weapon I have is better than the weapon I don't have.

    British Military Current Events

    I used a L85A1 for 2.5 years as a garrison based instructor, shooting it on annual qualifications and having a huge number of stoppages. I then deployed with a L85A2. The unit had just received them around three months before and the RQ gave me one that had never be taken to the range. It...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    That would be like having a Leopard tow a trailer with a engineer section behind it and cut it loose when it realizes it isn't facing obstacles or when it get shot at. Also, as it's a barge with very limited sea handling, we aren't going to give any engineer units anything but school buses to...
