    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    It is not really rocket science, if you know how to lay a gun and have the firing tables.

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    Ah yes, the dreaded three engine landing… (Sorry- I am riffing off of a memory of an F-16 driver ribbing a B-52 driver after he declared an emergency for losing an engine, when he still had 7 left…)

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Properly sighted and employed, both the .50 and the GPMG are monster killers on the battlefield. With the armour piercing ammo, a .50 cal could credibly defeat a BMP.

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Sigh. They are complimentary skills. Direct fire, on the move, stabilized shooting is a different tool than SF mounted, GPMGs firing registered fire plans (either direct fire or indirect). Neither are better- but both are neccessary skills.

    The USN's Blue Water Navy - The LCS as A-10

    Your time line is out a bit, I think. Bras D’or came after the development of the beartrap (that was around 1962-63, IIRC). What sunk the Bras D’or was the constant cracking in the hydrofoils. The concept outstripped the material science of the day.

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Are you kidding me? In the defence, the ability to put registered, plunging machine gun fire on to potential assembly areas or into defiles is invaluable. Has everyone in the Army completely forgotten how machine guns are supposed to be employed?

    Majority of Canadians not interested in joining the CAF

    The CAF seems to be the only military on the planet that can make going fast, blowing things up and shooting automatic weapons unattractive to teenagers…

    Majority of Canadians not interested in joining the CAF

    The 40% pension after 20 years (in my case) was a drawing card when I joined at 17 (YMMV). More important was the ability to do cool and adventurous stuff. An employer can get away with a lot in terms of poor pay and benefits if the job is fun and interesting. Just saying….

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Not a Tamara Lich fan, but we cannot find Crown Prosecutors willing to apply to judges to keep violent criminals with literally hundreds of arrests in a year in jail while awaiting trial…

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    But safe handling was not you proposed. You proposed a marksmanship test. What obtaining a certain grouping has to do with safe handling (especially for someone new getting into the sport who may have never owned or used a firearm previously is beyond me. People here are being polite to you. It...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    Brad is right. You are the one conflating marksmanship and skill with firearms with firearms safety. Hitting a target should not be a governmental concern. A Government’s only concern should be that the right firearms are in the right people’s hands and that they are stored safely when not in...

    After SSE - Canada’s next defence policy

    On the surface, it makes sense to me that we would base our “DEWline refresh” on some form of SPY-7. The economies of scale in spares and training make sense.

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    I recommend that you bring this to the attention of the CoC. If hetro males are being blanket excluded from these types of events and it is not just a “one off”, this needs to be fixed. If your CoC is unable/unwilling to deal with this, I do know that CPCC has a plus account on the DWAN.

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    No reflection on any of the good PAOs I have worked with in the past, but this guy was oblivious to how bad a situation was and the Padre started to get “Jesus flipping tables in the temple” angry…
