    Chariots on Fire by Maj Cole Petersen

    Taking this another step, (and copying the Namor HAPC) an integral indirect fire capability like a mortar might be more useful (or a switchblade launching system for example) instead of an autocannon. Either to lay down smoke, illumination or fires on an enemy position in support of the...

    Fincantieri Lays Keel Of Qatar’s Air Defense LPD

    In the Italian context (and Algerian for that matter) it kinda makes sense. A destroyer-sized ship that can launch multiple helicopters and small landing craft. Given the Mediterranean, this would be a really useful ship for marine commando's or evacuation purposes. Not sure why Quatar wants...

    Chariots on Fire by Maj Cole Petersen

    Some thread necromancy in light of further lessons learned in Ukraine and the Armenian/Azerbijhan conflict. The original discussion revolved around the proper use of LAV's in an environment that has a proliferation of ATGM. Essentially using them as direct fire support for an infantry advance...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Shouldn't that be 2SSR? Just rolls off the tongue better.

    Carl G

    Seems like its a tighter range band than some of the other Carl G rounds. Which would make sense if you are using that round in urban combat. Might just be the angle on the camera though.

    MARS being renamed?

    Lol, like the army didn't invent this sort of thing. Jump wings, pathfinder, special operations qualification. BWK is a qualification that anyone in the CAF could get if they were allowed the opportunity, though it is required by NWOs as part of their career progression their OFP is based on...

    MARS being renamed?

    Huh. I guess I have to add another 5 min for transferring random bling between my 3B shirts. It will be a wonder if they hold out with all the holes that are going to go into them. @FSTO seeing the new image up close I agree that the "waves" could have been done better. Not super happy about...

    MARS being renamed?

    Is that ticketed or passing your Board? Because I have my ticket as a PRes on a MCDV. I never did the NOPQ board because we didn't do that as PRes. Also here is your image you posted earlier that has a much better view of the badge.

    MARS being renamed?

    Are there different colours? I'm assuming there are. What qualification levels do they represent? And when do I get my cool bling to represent that I'm CSE. And since I used to be MARS do I get one retroactively? Because I want a nipple pocket moustache as well.

    No! It still has a maple leaf on it. FFS!

    MARS being renamed?

    Cannons or something... or an angry chinook salmon (wearing a crown).

    MARS being renamed?

    What I will say about the pin is why TF do we have to slap a friggin maple leaf on every single god damned badge/patch etc... Have enough confidence in ourselves to stop labeling everything as Canadian. I know its a great brand that leaf, but it's a terrible reflex. I would agree with that.

    MARS being renamed?

    I can't even see it properly in that image. I do miniature modeling as a hobby and I've learned over the years to judge the miniature in real life not from photos. So I'll reserve judgment.

    Future Armour

    I use the term light tank to distinguish from an MBT. I mean it sounds cool but again, whats the capability it provides that another system can't do as well? And if you have an MBT would you not use that instead of a light tank, and/or put your resources into MBT instead?

    Future Armour

    Based on the only two criteria that matter for armored fighting vehicle categorization the LAV 6 is clearly an IFV. What are our community thoughts on light tanks... Seems that there are a few new light tanks coming on the market recently. Lynx 120mm, CV90120, Griffin. Looking at Ukraine...

    After SSE - Canada’s next defence policy

    The only article I could find was the G&M. That plus the $8billion over three years works out to a budget increase of about $7.6 billion every year over the next three. Which would be about a 33% increase (rough math, we're what ~$21 billion right now? Goes to $29 billion). That is not an...

    Royal Navy trials using commercial tankers to sustain fleet

    Sure it's possible. Is it necessary though? We don't have enough ships that this would be a requirement.
