    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    I was Promoted While So Employed to WO in Meaford. I had been doing the job for over 6-9 months, Reg Force RCR, qualified 3B, position available and no promoted person to fill job. It was odd but doable. Chain of Command pushed it up and it was approved within months. I was due to be substantive...

    Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle - RG-31, LAV Coyote, and (partial) G-Wagon Replacement

    Interesting to read that the Bison was never used for what it was intended......an armoured vehicle for the Reserves. Back in the early 90's when it was procured, the Reserves did receive them. I was in the units that were assigned them. I was both in the West Nova Scotia Regiment and the 1st Bn...

    Merging SQ and DP1 (infantry reserve)

    To clarify some facts for you: 1. SQ has been dead for as long as I remember.  ??? 2. BMQ L has been running since the run up to Afghanistan.  :nod: After the current DP 1 Infantry QS/ TP Writing Boards that were completed this year. Here are the rumours, as I'm not authorized nor do I feel...

    The Patrol

    This is the main independent operation that a platoon will carry out. As Danger Boy says, it allows young Pl Comd's to plan and execute without being micro managed by OC's. This is a critical operation in my mind. I don't believe it is outdated. It is a fundamental skill that should be practiced...

    Friendly Advice for potential Infantry Officer candidates

    Techno Viking, I was hoping he would get more too. Something along the lines of a MSC or MMV. The General that day tried to have him reconsider his release. Sometimes you have to make hard career choices and get on with it. DD13

    Friendly Advice for potential Infantry Officer candidates

    Just to give you some insight. The second officer Techno Viking talks about was my Pl Comd. He started the tour as the junior Pl Comd and finished as the senior Pl Comd. He was decorated for said  incident. He was and still is the best combat officer I've ever met. I would follow him to hell and...

    Battery Use Spreadsheet

    Looking for help. I use to have a Battery Use Calculator in an Excel spreadsheet. I believe a guy in the PPCLI made it. It had all the types of batteries and what device they were used for. It could calculate how many for different lengths of days, etc. If anyone has a copy can you PM me or post...

    Canadian military adds medical technicians to air force helicopter crews

    I'm pretty sure this topic can be summed up easily. I think what the Air Force and Medic world is looking at is adding to the Tactical side of the Air Evacuation chain. It is not meant to take over the SAR role in Domestic SAR or evacuation. As Canada does not have a Combat SAR role, we are...

    CTV Afghan Army ready to take over

    As with some people on this site who have and are right now, soldiering with the ANA. We know what their capabilities and limiltations are. We can't rush the ANA into the fray. With proper mentoring the ANA in my opinion are just as good as our soldiers. The problem is letting them go off on...
