    Preserving Army Fleets

    Slovakia offers its fleet of T-72M tanks to Ukraine in exchange for Leopard 2 MBTs POSTED ON SUNDAY, 08 MAY 2022 17:15 Would be an easy way to indirectly assist UKR with our oldest or roughest Leopard 2s and replenish with whatever you will: M1s, Newer used Leo2s, something else.

    Preserving Army Fleets

    My lofty idea: Donate a chunk of our LAV6 fleet (if we should), build new ones (jobs) and build out the variants. New ATGM add-ons to some of the turrets. Buy some 40MM+ATGM/AA turrets for an interim IFV and testbed for the next APC/IFV in the Medium Cavalry role. Offer GDLS 30+years of...

    Preserving Army Fleets

    We have plenty of things that would do alot for the UKR war effort but we are choosing not to. If we cared more we could use this as an opportunity to show our confidence in Canadian products and the world would view us as less pacifist. Genuine question, are we not sending LAVs to UKR because...

    C20 Semi-aut Sniper System

    This is off topic, but we should be doing the above across the board with hygienic products, PPE, vaccine/medications to munitions, fleets of vehicles to rifles. Canadian workers making licenced and proven designs in Canada. If Colt Canada or CZ chose to close its doors, it would be prudent to...

    Preserving Army Fleets

    Interesting points made in this thread. Here's what i've learned. So I take it we are in the 'future' of warfare earlier than we thought and the state of the CAF has slid further into mediocrity? The backbone of our military fleet is 10 years behind the curve at best. We haven't been closer to...

    Preserving Army Fleets

    Basically every popular thread bleeds into other, new threads with people saying the same thing. We know the problems, we have a couple great solutions, but no decision-maker in gov't cares. I've read interesting takes that circle many thread over and over: Leveraging and sustaining defence...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    We should realise we could've used these for the floods in Vancouver, transporting stuff to UKR, HADR anywhere, etc... Its based on a VARD 7 Series 313. VARD 7 313 - Vard Marine https://vardmarine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/VARD-7-313.pdf

    Future Helicopters

    If only we cared the rifleman/civilian in danger enough to protect them using these 'evil' machines. RCAF/gov't hasn't done enough to assure people it deserves money for XYZ. It needs to be present on the TV/Internet.

    Grooming Standards in Police, Emergency Services

    I will add, grooming standards are highly dependant on the customer/client base. A Board looking to hire a law firm at $1000/hr won't be happy when the Girl in the Dragon Tattoo shows up for a deposition, but a company looking to attract young and diverse talent should be more relaxed. Which...

    Grooming Standards in Police, Emergency Services

    I've read the studies (although it was ages ago), on the importance of dress and deportment. My general thinking is that nobody really cares about hair and tattoos anymore. If officers have unique hair/tattoos/beard then it may go towards subconsciously humanizing officers - which i'm all in...

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    I think for the Kingstons, they'll be around for a little longer, so we have some time to debate their warship capabilities and focus on much more pressing projects. This however isn't a great idea since the Halifaxs will be around for quite some time and will be needed for 'higher-end' jobs...

    Boeing to offer P-8 as CP-140 Replacement

    Anyone know why Australia cancelled their Reaper buy last minute? Has the use of drones and UAVs dramatically changed since their GWOT maturity to something new? Should we just bite the bullet and buy larger fleet of P-8s for ASW, but change RPAS to something (fashionable) TB-2 sized and...
