    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    If you aren't using the Fire Control then its RADHAZ safe. And you can put in a blanking sector. There is also elevation so if you radiate into the air then its fine. I wouldn't be worried about NOTMAR's at all. I would be shocked if a lobster boat can get that close to the shore facility.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Answers, no it will not be safe withing 300+m of the radar when its radiating, and no you won't be able to use the coastal area because of security and fences etc... It's DND property that they are letting you use right now, when the building goes up security won't let you in. Deal with it.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    No disagreement here. Its going to be the way of the future, where uncrewed vessels will be operating as sensor platforms for the other ships, expanding the RMP. Surface and air platforms are just the beginning, ASW is going to be the tougher one but likely a good wave of the future.

    Component Transfer from NWO to INTO while in Royal Military College. Should i VR and Reapply? need advice

    Never ever VR and reapply. That is the road of pain, and you run a good chance of things not working out to get back in. Particulary if you already are at RMC, just get through it and get your degree. First if you plan to live and work in Halifax as INT that's likely not going to happen. Not...

    There are also parts of the UK and Aussie ships that are build in Canada. Rolls Royce Canada is building the mission bay handling system and its a beast so I'm told. Ultra Electronics is building the sonars for all the ships and some parts for those are made in Dartmouth, as is some of the...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Wow, the Kiwi's bought some P-8's. Do they let US nuclear vessels into their waters yet? There are plenty of Kiwi and US friction points. Particularly the one where the contribute zero info the the Five Eyes. Massive as in criminal, legal, trade and NORAD. What about ELINT which is huge...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I'm calling BS on eviction from 5 Eyes and G7+1 (EU is the +1). They can't even kick the Russians out of the G20, and as far as Five Eyes are concerned the Kiwi's are probably first on the chopping block. The G7 has Canada in it because the US wants another diplomatic foil against Europe...

    More power is good, hopefully there isn't to much of an engineering change between the versions.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Here's a nice article on ship naming. Minister of National Defence has the final say. Not a huge River class name fan but some of those names are emblematic of the RCN. You could the the Provincial class, which would be interesting. Quebec, Yukon (though named for the River IIRC), Ontario...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I'm not overly in favour of recycling the city class, particularly as there will still be city class sailing right up to when the first ship hits the water. Are destroyers considered general purpose ships or are the AAW and Command and Control ships mainly? I'm a big propenent of classifying...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Who's on that committee? And how does one get input into it? This is going round the buoy again but I'm completely in favour of @Navy_Pete 's position on this. Or use First Nations mythological creatures as names. Mainly because I want to see HMCS Wendigo and HMCS Thunderbird be a thing.

    I knew it was spelled differently and of course just typed out the wrong way anyways... lol. As for the order yes completely agree. I just posted the images in the order I found them, just to test you of course... :rolleyes:

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    HMCS Ottawa's 341 crest may be slightly different then the 229's crest as the 3rd Ottawa was named after the river not the city . I seem to recall the 229 crest has the water in a different spot or something. Of course the crew has a tradition of rebelling against the Ottawa name (as they...

    Minister Anand announces investment of up to $3.7 billion to supply operational clothing and footwear to the Canadian Armed Forces

    Working in the PMO for the ships was one of these exercises and its why they bring sailors in to review all the designs. Example in the original 3DM, the chart table on the bridge was located such that if the OOW had to hustle between bridge wings during a person overboard they had a high...
