    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    I would say we’re in the operative word here. See my point about them being very dated. Most of my time in the Reserves I thought it was a very weird structure; having armouries built to facilitate drill nights for essentially neighborhood or community regiments is a concept that should have...

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    Gee what could possibly make us less inclined to wear uniforms out in public ? Was there perhaps a fairly recent violent event ? Bearing in mind that Gault was already a Captain when he did that, it was a massively different world when he did that. Same with Lord Strathconna, paying for...

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    Yes. Reserve armouries, almost without exception, are very very dated buildings generally build to house more social clubs that training facilities. One could make a strong argument, for example, to shut down both of them in Edmonton and have the reserve regiments use the enormous LTF and TAPV...

    Sorry but that’s not true anymore is it? Bradley’s and Strikers are crewed by 11Bs no?

    Change of Command drill question / passing of the Colours and Swagger (Pace) stick

    I meant specifically for doing the parade. I’d call that good scheduling, not a short as a reward for doing the damn thing.

    I’m flashing back a couple years to the Commander of the Army answering Comd 1 CMBGs question about how we could get night vision for every soldier in the high readiness brigade with an king discussion about the next generation digitial night visions he’d been shown that was going to be...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    An argument in favour of reservist tankers. The British operate a “crew replacement” regiment in their Royal Yeomanry. Training extra bodies to replace shortages / losses isn’t the worst idea and the SALH are actually ideally suited to the task being in Edmonton and able to make use of...

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Yes, no one is discounting its effectiveness. What is being said is that there is a cost to bringing that along; I personally wouldn’t want to be kicking in a door, or hopping through a window, with an 84 strapped to my back. Available yes, always employed I would think not. Which is where my...

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Correct The AT4s will, and no you’ll spread them, but can task one To a fire base or keep the others in the LAV. Maybe ? That is very situational. If we’re talking gun group / rifle group that Carl G round was probably part of the suppression and I doubt we want everyone waiting around those...

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    Because of how it reloads, ie from the back after opening it up, it’d be very awkward to do as a solo operation. The safety issue has been mentioned as well, and that’s honestly an easier work around.

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    It does enter into the calculus, the LAV is of course engaging in an attack, but that may or may not be the same target as the section. The 25 should be targeting En AFVs and hard points, and while it’s taking the section to objective, it can only support them so close. We’re also working on the...

    Yes but as Kevin is pointing out, you’ll still be tiring up two guys to reload it and fire.

    Ricks Napkin Challenge- The Infantry Section and Platoon

    The Russian army doesn’t really have a reserves system: https://www.csis.org/blogs/post-soviet-post/best-or-worst-both-worlds “Fewer than 10 percent of conscripted soldiers carry out any refresher training in the five years after they end their active service. The Ministry of Defense admitted...
