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

    Good for Australia. Now if only Canada could be so blessed, both with government will and foreign help.

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    If they're going to hook in head-mounted VR control tech to the UAV controls, I can seriously see this happening.

    The diff between RCAF & Army as sigint specialist

    Isn't that an Intelligence Operator or Communications Research Operator tasking?

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Personally, so am I. I just wish that the government would do something about getting more shipyards involved so we could get hulls into the water faster; not just the Type 26s but the AOPS, the JSS and everything else.

    Seeking an excuse to spend Defence $$ on a Bombardier plane

    Could we get a hold of a flight of these aircraft? Would they be able to fit into the RCAF?

    New Accommodations Facility at CFB Borden

    That's good. When I went to CFSAL in the late 1980s, there were new temp residence blocks close to the school building and that area's pretty crowded as is.

    New Accommodations Facility at CFB Borden

    Where exactly on the base is this going up? As noted before, Borden's quite the sprawl. Is it on the south side by CFSATE, the centre part by CFLTC or the north side by CFMPA?

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Given where that kingpost is - and that it seems to be a temporary setup on the flight deck of all the places on the ship! - something tells me that doing a RAS evolution will be a sort of "done by necessessity" function. In other words, if an AOPS needs to fuel up, head to a port and do it there.
