    Just thought I'd ask people how their day is going? Today is the 21st day of 21st year of the 21st century. We've made it so far!

    What type of APC is this?

    Apparently the soldiers in the picture are QOR. Location is Toronto. The year is 1954. The task is assistance to civil power after storm damage. I didn’t think Canada had a tracked APC in the 50’s. It’s not an M113. Notice the top of the sides are flared.

    Thread title says it all. What a fascinating video and the work must have been an awesome experience for all.  We see Wilson Powerline  helicopters flying up the valley heading north quite often. Seems like a well run, highly efficient organization. https://youtu.be/5ygUlCERrug

    RCN Weapons System (historical, current, planned)

    We do not have a thread of RCN weapons systems that is recent, so thought I would start a new one. I saw today the attached images in a twitter thread from HMCS Winnipeg. There is a video of Hammerhead UTV taking a pounding from 3 guns at close range  (Bofors, Phalanx and the new NWRS). So it...

    ADF to acquire long range missile strike capability

    Looks like the ADF is gaining a larger mission envelope: https://www.afr.com/politics/federal/new-missiles-for-defence-in-270b-arms-build-up-20200630-p557kg Article doesn’t layout exactly what the missile is, but sure sounds like Tomahawk and the 200 LRASM requested and approved this past February.

    Boosting wifi range

    Can anybody recommend a wifi range extender that actually works? I need to boost signal strength out to 400 feet. This is supposedly within range of my Telus supplied Huawei wireless router, but the thing drops signal most of the time. It’s not an option to bury a cable, and the router can not...
