    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    and because the voters are convinced that the media are giving them accurate information. The forces are in bad shape because of the leadership failures. We have decided on the airplanes, we have decided on the ships we have bought new armoured vehicles so what is the problem?

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I am thinking that those armoured police wagons we are sending over will get used for a lot more than border patrol considering that the assault on the trenches was conducted from Toyota? with a cab mounted machine gun. I'll bet they will soon mount weapons and used them in assaults.

    or take the 295's and put them to some use as transports then go out and buy real airplanes for SAR. The air force use to have cosmos for local i.e. 2 to 3 hour shuttling.

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    Liberals announce $1.24B sole-sourced deal to upgrade search and rescue helicopter fleet

    trams, buses and subways only work in major urban areas. Less density means empty buses which then cost a lot more per ride and pollute a lot more per capita than the PMV. It is either that or you force people to walk to the major routes and that won't wash at minus 10 or in a snow squall...

    What can replace the Twin Otter?

    I think they tried the Buffalo with an augmented wing, jets, and some type of float system. It was awesome to watch but very limited payload

    What can replace the Twin Otter?

    which summarizes why the DC3 and C46 are still in use. For all of our technological improvements we have not really been able to improve on them very much. Good on gravel and ice, reasonable payload, rugged airframe but getting harder and harder to find parts. Perhaps Viking could resurrect...

    not if you can bypass Quebec it isn't. It is also a much shorter pipeline and potentially easier to get the indigenous folks to buy in.

    you could also use Churchill and forget about the east coast entirely. Granted it would be a short shipping season but with enough hulls it could be quite profitable

    What can replace the Twin Otter?

    While you are dreaming, why not build new Buffalos with the DH6 cockpit. Viking probably has templates and plans for a pressurized version that would supplant the 295 and satisfy our needs in the north to boot. Buy about 24 of them to make it worthwhile.

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    I don't think it would matter if the hull was painted grey or red, white and blue. Any hull carrying military gear is going to be targeted. But having a standing fleet capable of carrying your gear, whether civil or naval should be a no-brainer. The only difficulty with civilian is crewing...
