    Rick's Napkin Forces Challenge

    All depends on what you want to do. Are you concerned only with TW? Then smaller aircraft, drones and coastal patrol boats (lots of them) will do. If you want control of the EEZ then you'll want larger aircraft, drones (time on station) and better sea keeping patrol craft. Shipborne helicopters...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    I think Leslie was not part of the "in" crowd at Liberal Caucus and therefore was shunted off to the side and told to be a trained seal.

    Slight derail here, but where the hell did he get that sweater and why the hell are the rest of us peons saddled with the crap from Logistik?

    New German Navy summer uniform

    I think there is a certain faction in the CAF who want us to wear some grey shapeless smock with no insignia nor possible gender identity cut.

    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    When Prince William and Princess Catherine visited Victoria the RCN put together a 100 person guard of all Navy. Looked goddamn outstanding! And not a white glove to be seen at all.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I stand corrected. But what does it say about Irving that this rumour can be accepted at face value?

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    They don't care (Irving) cause they are practically the only game in town.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    So a little birdie told me today that Irving cut corners with the documentations aspect of the AOPS. It seems that the crew is now crawling about the engineering spaces tracing all the piping and electrical lines since Irving never supplied them. Colour me not shocked at all.

    North Park Armoury rehabilitation project in Halifax

    I guess I'll put this here. The Bytown Naval Officers Mess is to put it mildly a building that should be condemned. 10 years ago it was going to cost 3 million dollars to fix the problems. Since the building was a private entity (a group of officers bought the house during WWII) there was...

    New MND - Anita Anand

    While the Defence Minister seems to have some good bones, our new Foreign Minister who should be leading the charge of getting a policy that DND will be able to support, is pretty much vacuous political hack. We're in for more years of aimlessness.

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    I was chatting with a chief on Thursday and the MARTECH trade issues came up. This is just watercooler talk, but it appears that the RCN will commence walking back the changes they made to the engineering world. I'm concerned that it may be too late and there will be a long time of pain until...
