    Ukraine - Superthread

    Right now it's a question of what and when - sequencing in to UKR is an important consideration as well. Canada has made multiple donations, and will, I suspect, do more. So "Tomorrow CAN announces X" does not mean "CAN will only ever do X".

    Leo 2A6M CAN - are they in service?

    We borrowed 20 from GER for AFG, bought 100 from NLD, upgraded 20 to GER standard to replace the 20 we borrowed... It was, in technical terms, a bit of a shit show.

    Hospital ship for Canada

    There are medical spaces within the JSS. They will be equipped and outfitted. There are additional spaces onboard which could, in extremis, be repurposed to expand medical capacity.
