    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Given where that kingpost is - and that it seems to be a temporary setup on the flight deck of all the places on the ship! - something tells me that doing a RAS evolution will be a sort of "done by necessessity" function. In other words, if an AOPS needs to fuel up, head to a port and do it there.

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    Given how much the American government is seemingly looking at the F-35 as a financial black hole with little returns, how would this enhance the chances of the F/A-18E/F to win the contest...

    V-Adm Art McDonald new Canadian CDS (Jan-Feb 2021)

    Oh, swell! So since Comd CA is now A/CDS, does that mean the CDS will ever come back if he's proven innocent?

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Honestly, governments should get into the habit of breaking down the annual cost of things. $17B over twenty years is $850M a year. Have then say, "We're going to be spending approximately 850 million dollars a year for the next twenty years employing X number of people to prepare fifteen...
