    Replacing the Subs

    Please tell me I’m dreaming here man… Our brand new shiny MH fleet, which took over a century to order and have delivered, were “fitted for, but not with, L16”? That’s because L16 is being phased out for something faster & more secure, so we didn’t bother with L16 because it’s essentially ‘old...

    Replacing the Subs

    I’ve been asking myself that question also. Why does a submarine require a certain amount of power in order to surface through the ice? Wouldn’t a strengthened/reinforced hull be primary concern? But my thought now is - and again perhaps I am wrong - is that to push through Arctic ice (even...

    Replacing the Subs

    Hey now, all fun games back when I was single & allowed my inner nerd to rage! Combined with Star Citizen (which quickly took over) I remember stepping outside one winter afternoon and actually thinking to myself “Oh yeah! The sun! I completely forgot about it…” (In all fairness we get about...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    I read that sentence the same way you did. To all who clarified - thank you. I think Haggis and I were on the same brainwave last night. (Anybody else work a night shift, stay awake all day the day prior and after, then wake up curious to read what they posted on Army.ca? If not, and...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    We had quite a few folks in custody here who didn’t belong in custody either, but there was simply nowhere else for them to go - and some crown prosecutor convinced some judge that sitting in a 15x15 room was somehow in both society’s best interest at and theirs. Not so. She actually would...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    A court date, and conditions… Very much indeed something is missing.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Sorry, not tracking what you mean here?

    Replacing the Subs

    I have realized over the last year or two, the more I observe the submarine thread on here, as well as doing some quick research on other forums about submarine operations - That I truly didn't know anything about submarine warfare or submarine operations in general. There is a YouTube...

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

    How shitty of a day are you having when the Taliban pull you off a flight for being a wee bit too sketchy? 😅 And for it to all happen at THAT airport to boot… The more I think about this article, the more my dark side chuckles a bit… He’s worried that local authorities may deem him to be...

    Replacing the Subs

    It may cost a LOT of money. Be an orphan fleet. Be extremely late entering service. And make the Cyclone buy look like it was a series of logical choices. But heck, YOLO. Let’s do it 😅 But seriously, I think we should partner up with whatever project we think best fits our...

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

    He left the UK and went back to Afghanistan for Covid related reasons? How does that make any sense? Leave a country with a well established healthcare system, free vaccinations once the vaccines became available, and various social supports…for… a 3rd world country that - at the time - was...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I agree. The American style would be un doable here, even if we went on a buying spree & provided reserve units with the same vehicles/equipment that the Reg Force uses. The Americans have an integration with their society that is far ahead, and far deeper than most western countries could...

    Replacing the Subs

    I’m no expert when it comes to submarines either, but from one non-expert to another, that post makes a lot of sense. When the question has been asked before about whether Canadian subs could break through the Arctic ice, I always had a few questions of my own: 1. Why does being a nuclear...

    LAV 6.0

    😐🤷🏼‍♂️ I probably started to reply to something on my phone, but didn’t post it. Then replied to something else from my computer & forgot to delete what I had started. Sorry guys

    Replacing the Subs

    It sounds like the rail transport system is efficient when not facing any challenges, but can screech to a halt if anything happens as the trains are dependent on the rail system to be fully functioning at large? (I was just read the one part on the performance of the rail system.) If anything...
