    VAdm Norman - Supply Ship contract: Legal fight

    Doesn’t matter. It’s all visible to the border agent. It’s up to them whether they let him in or not, and people have been turned away for having a stay on their record.

    VAdm Norman - Supply Ship contract: Legal fight

    What happens when he tries to enter the US and is rejected due to the stay? The records don't just "go away".

    VAdm Norman - Supply Ship contract: Legal fight

    The charges were only stayed, not withdrawn. Probably keep him in the same situation until at least after the election. https://www.ppsc-sppc.gc.ca/eng/nws-nvs/2019/08_05_19.html

    Status on Victoria-class Submarines?

    No, it was as SKT said...money. The Navy at the time wanted Spearfish, but the government was unwilling to pay extra for them. We wanted the ESM fits too, but they wouldn't pay for those either.

    The Sinking of the Canadian Navy - Macleans

    You need a WDS and S-band data uplink (basically SM-2 capability) and a specific version of RIM-162 to get the full range out of it. Otherwise it's just a better Sea Sparrow. You also need a Mk 41 launcher for the quad-pack. If you have a Mk 48 launcher you can only use single and IIRC dual...

    Kingston Class 40MM replacement?

    Qu'appelle had a 3"/50 forward because there weren't enough 3"/70's after the school got their mount. From what I saw on Awesome Warship Saskatchewan the 3"/70 shot great for about 3 rounds and then a shear pin was.....sheared. Then there was an hours stoppage while the NWTs hunted down and...

    Is Sikorsky doing some testing in NYC? I saw a Cyclone fly down the Hudson today.

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    They'd better have either an awful lot of missiles or a whacking huge warhead if they're trying to target with the lower frequencies.

    CP-140 Aurora

    Umm..no. If we're afraid of anything like that, it's a Sea Thing losing power while they're dropping something off or picking something up over us. The only other thing I can think of is being rammed by a skimmer during an attack. Submariners are unlikely to know if there's an MPA around unless...

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    It's the General Dynamics Canada Maritime Helicopter electronics suite. It's all the elctronics bits like the radar, mission computer, weapons interfaces etc. To my knowledge, the mission suite they're planning to install in the CH-148 is brand new and has never flown in an aircraft before. I...

    Is the GDC MH suite fully debugged?

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    Please keep in mind that the articles author (and site owner) is widely regarded as a deranged loon. His background is in cell phone engineering, not any type of air combat. He is pretty good at general RF ideas though, and parts of this article touch on that. AESA by itself doesn't really mean...

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    In WWII a "sloop" was an ocean-going escort with 2 shafts, warship machinery and oriented towards AAW.
