    Ukraine - Superthread

    What systems would that consist of though? Just looking at Sky Sabre and NASAAMS and even Patriot missiles systems they don't seem to have very large ranges

    Ukraine - Superthread

    A little late in the game to be talking about supplying weaponry when all along its been lets not doing anything to escalate things. Read an older article in the National Post the other day when the Ukrainians were begging for supplies including Eryx but I guess it was decided to just scrap...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    The inability to compete in the air domain still looks to be Ukraines major weakness, however with troop and equipment movements from the Central and Eastern Military Districts it sure looks like Russia is getting ready to throw everything at Ukraine. I would have to think that this would put...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    I don't know why the Canadian government had to jump the gun on the American border rules by 1 week. Just causes a needless problem

    https://bnonews.com/index.php/2022/01/china-reports-5-new-cases-of-h5n6-bird-flu/ Not sure how credible this source is but just what we need is an H5N6 influenza outbreak to add to the party

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    I think people may have some seriously high expectations of what the vaccination can achieve. From my readings vaccine efficacy is less for the variants than for original strain vaccine efficacy decreases over relatively short time but still highly effective against hospitalizations or severe...

    Will 2021 see a new pistol buy?

    This is the MSVS-Navistar? How is that possible? The trucks are taken off road for commercial vocational use all the time without any warranty issues.

    Not sure if this was posted anywhere before but Gazprom is pumping natural gas out of Europe via Yamal line while pumping it in via Nordstream and others. Oh those sneaky Russians https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/russian-gas-flows-germany-via-yamal-europe-stop-gascade-data-shows-2021-12-21/

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    The next 10 yrs should be ok ship wise if they manage things well but I can see the 10 after that getting rough. So on the surface we have some time to fix the neverending recruitment/training/retention issues. I think there will no doubt be some ship availability issues in the 30's and we will...

    Maybe the lockdowns didn't/don't actually accomplish anything? The BC and Ontario systems have performed differently too. Why? We need better measures of capability?

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Well it could. It's going to cost more to fund them. It's just the particular example of the UK vs Canada being discussed in the two threads isn't explained by doctors and beds per capita. There's not enough information presented in the threads for me to come up with a hypothesis on the...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    I get that but my hope was that they were further along in the design process and that another 1.5 to 2 years would be enough time to finish the design of a ship class that will already be in construction in the UK and Aus. Systems integration by LM/BAE/ and Irving was prioritized to make this...
