    US Army to retire Stryker MGS by 2022

    FJAG, I just read the first article so far of the 3 that you posted. Was quite a good read! Now I'm exploring the rest of that site - some really good articles. (y)

    US to test Iron Dome

    Given some of the tech that comes out of Israel, the US should have looked into partnering with Rafael on this particular project. A solid system, which is significantly more combat proven than anything else on the market, that can still be improved or modified. I know the US wants to...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    You beat me to it lenaitch, I was just about to say something similar. I used to volunteer for Boys & Girls Club, one night a week for a few hours. And, depending on the weekend, maybe for a few hours on a Saturday. Despite the fact that all of the activities done with the kids were in large...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    They are also a mess internally as well, and I think it would be quite probably that an adversary / potential adversary could stir things up internally. Mass protests, labour strikes, the violence that comes from protests and riots, etc. As capable as they are on paper, and as decent as some...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I DO agree with where your coming from, and where you are going with your position. 100%. I VERY much support the idea & strict enforcement of holding members to a higher standard than the public, and we should be leading by example in the way we conduct ourselves. Personally & as an...

    Medical Evac helicopters

    Good question. Hoping Loachman, Max, Dimsum, EITS, etc - one of our RCAF residents can answer conclusively. We DID deploy 3 specialized Chinooks to Mali that were dedicated and equipped for MEDEVAC. So we have the capability. Obviously the Cormorant, but I think your referring to TACHEL...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Very well said Seaking. What Haggis said was perfectly fair. The program isn’t funded, staffed, or run by the military. It has no official relationship to the CAF or DND. The individual who hired him wasn’t a CAF member. She was a doctor. Let’s take whatever wins we can these days...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    I’m sure CSC will meet civilian standards once built. Crews for all of them though? You’re probably right on that one. I am extremely happy with the decision to select the Type 26, arm it to the teeth, bring us into the Aegis family, etc etc. Game changer for us. (As a non-navy guy who...

    US to test Iron Dome

    I have a former IDF friend who is there right now and posted a video to Snapchat. Will try to get her to text me the video so I can post it. Holy crap. Looks like a sensationalized video game. Absolutely unreal 🤯

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    One has to wonder how a doctor, being mindful of who was attending the program and who she was caring for, would hire a registered sex offender as a mentor. Like WTF... And I realize I need to tread lightly when saying this, so please everybody - understand I don’t say this in a sexist way...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    Turkey and Greece are still both NATO members. (I have a feeling I misunderstood what you meant there) - which is what is going to make that conflict so devastating for NATO as an organization. Not really from a material perspective, but it will heavily distract NATO from outside threats to...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    It's odd to say that I would be extremely surprised if they did anything to Jack Ma, given how high profile he is. His company is world known, and he has become a popular figure online, and is frequently asked to be a speaker at a variety of events. Given his wealth, status, and high profile...

    British Military Current Events

    Well said. We are entering a new era of warfare, absolutely. I believe that era has already started, and we have just been lucky enough to be observers thus far. That new era, from a weapons & munitions perspective, is going to complicate the battlespace and make it even more dangerous than...

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    You are right. Let’s just get back on topic.

    Who knew actions had consequences?

    It’s great that he’s doing 4 years for it. As you should for setting a police station on fire 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️ My real question of concern here is...someone should quickly look into his parents. Shakespeare? Really?
