    What if....A Super disaster? Impact on Canada or the world? Napkin speculation

    So.....the catastrophic volcano event in Yellowstone would turn the breadbasket of America (and Canada) into a pile of ash. What would it do to the rest of the world? Would they come to our aid, or would they laugh at us, and turn on each other and start a bunch of 'little' wars for their own...

    Export Oberon SSK Sub Brief

    There are some other fascinating history bits I found (open source) about submarine deployment diaries. I'll have to see if I can find that again. Based on this guy's videos - I think that the RCN should download them, and play one a day on the SONAR OP course, and replace the daily SONAR...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    King Solomon (biblical) is purported to have said "There is nothing new under the sun." Here we have a perfect example.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    There are test modules in the laydown area in front of the main doors of D-206 in dockyard right now for testing deck covering I think.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    When your main shipboard RADAR is powerful enough that you're not allowed to turn it on within X miles of land or other habitation....having a shore station that is not in a remote location would be impossible....and having it in a remote location would make it very difficult to use as a...

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    True, but letting the troops fire rockets is important...the digital drills and sims are one thing, but having an actual whooosh-bang! is important too. The processes for loading could be similar, the handling would be effectively identical (weighted cells to match actual weight of the loaded...

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    How about...a HIMARS for all the Reserve forces - and figure out a way to use the old classic and cheap FFAR rockets as sub-caliber reduced range training rounds for all of them? The HIMAR truck would be easier to maintain by the PRes than other more advanced systems. The reduced range would...

    Future Armour

    Weight and length are two factors - the real 'concern' would be having a human trying to lift, maneuver, and insert that heavier shell into the breech while the vehicle is moving. An artillery piece is sitting static when firing - the troops are lifting a heavy shell, but do not have to deal...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    I think the record for that was 78 or 79 days....and having spoken with one of the crew who was subjected to that foolishness, they did switch in the middle of that period - about day 35 or so...they did a double 5 hour watch and switched the rotation supposedly. My longest stretch was 31 days...

    USN Laser and Drone swarms....

    That's what HARPOON is for... Agree on the 3P solution though - at least on the current platform. I'm wondering if there isn't some sort of RAMSES type jamming system that'd be available as well though? Most (commercial) drones operate on a similar frequency band, and jamming that would make...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    I hope they learned from the Martech and W Eng.... Those would be case examples of what not to do...right? I feel for the uncertainty, but those sailors should simply look at the numbers - and realize that the Navy is going to do damn near anything to keep people that want to stay, and to...

    Top Gun 2

    OK.... That was....really really good. When I'm left with nitpicking about apparently supersonic Tomahawk swarms....and flares distracting radar missiles....it means you've actually got a pretty good movie.
