    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    A strong Canadian strategy won’t be a high priority for any government, as they know the public care more about social justice outrage stuff than hard power. Then that same public will be blown away when something like Covid happens, and we lack the ability to even produce our own PPE. And...

    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    Fantastic TED talk. I enjoyed it, genuinely 😉👍🏻 This is true. Our MSM does cherry pick what to report (I had no idea…) so what we do readily hear about does tend to feed into our confirmation bias. I think every democratic country with multiple political parties will have similar issues...

    Great Britain Offers to help Canada defend its Arctic (CBC)

    I suppose the universe does have a sense of humour in so many, yet subtle ways. Irony seems to be a favourite. The UK decides to rid itself of any MPA capability - despite being an island nation, with Russian naval vessels transiting nearby on a regular basis. So, other countries -...

    Replacing the Subs

    After watching that show on Discovery about the RN Perisher course, and reading two memories of ex-submarine skippers… I have realized I’m not remotely capable of commanding a submarine. Especially not one that has anything nuclear onboard, regardless of what it is. What has always really...

    The Space Force’s new service dress and PT uniforms have landed

    Do I still HAVE to march across the parade square? How do I march in zero G? If I have a chit for a leg injury, can I just float across it? Do my sheets still have to be pulled tight and crisp, with that little triangle thingy on the bottom corners? How do I keep my locker looking the way...

    The Space Force’s new service dress and PT uniforms have landed

    Wowa. Hold up. Hoolllldddd uuuppp… A uniform that is a solid 85-90% copy of Battlestar Galactica, and a badge that is a solid 85-90% Star Trek? I think I’m offended? I’m not sure yet. My brain is still just trying to grasp all of this 😉

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    That was actually incredibly informative, helps me to understand the situation very differently. Thanks for posting that

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I for one am happy ‘The Lake’ doesn’t give up her dead every November. I don’t want a bunch of bodies floating around everywhere, and Halloween is over by then. I really do enjoy the prairies ☺️🤷🏼‍♂️ I think you may be onto something. Call them “Civilian Protection Vehices” that carry...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    I suspect you are right again. Especially now with new management at the helm. That alone is a big boost of confidence from shareholders and government alike. Lobbying should be easier now than it was, say, 3 years ago. (I’m not sure their prior management could have done much worse.)...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    We will just tell him they are green. And since a lot of them are green, dumb dumb won’t know the difference when he shows up for selfies. Boom! Genius! 🤯 Tell him that the company that made them had to invest an equal amount into Canada, so they are free. Not only free, but that return...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    Agreed. I suspect you are 100% correct. I hope they remember that it is the American company that has caused this delay in the first place. Rewarding such a shoddy program with additional orders for an aircraft that is causing the gap in the first place would be a bad idea. But I’ve...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    It appears to be the A330 MRTT with some enhanced features, the most impressive (to me anyway) being that it can carry/deploy so much more fuel. Would it be offered to Canada when it comes time to launch a competition? It’s hard to say. The reason being that some of those new enhanced...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Not trying to derail the thread with this, even though it clearly belongs in another thread. I will elaborate in the appropriate thread. Just to touch on this though… I know the CAF can’t spend more than X number of dollars without the appropriate process from Treasury Board. Does anybody...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    The reason I asked to hear the thoughts of the folks on this forum about “If we could only get either AT or AD in place soon, which one would you choose and why?” was because for myself - I’m quite torn. And everybody has good points on this. Neither side has any faults. On the one hand...
