    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Ok, that makes more sense. I thought the range for th P8 seemed really low. Thanks for clearing that up

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Is Wikipedia correct with a 2222km range for the P8? If so that is exactly 1/3 the range of the Aurora. How do we use the Aurora now? Will the much lesser range over tax our small refueler fleet?

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    Canadair sold licensed copies of the F-86 Sabre, some even to the U.S. They also sold the CF-104 and I think there are others I'm forgetting right now. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadair_Sabre It seems they made them better than the original and that's why they were desirable. How they...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I lived in P.E.I. from 1988 until 2014 except 2000-2003. I don't remember the drinking age ever being 18, when did it change? I didn't care about the drinking age until the mid-90's though.

    Assisted Dying.

    I must admit I don't understand the reference? Or knowledge of. My fear with this is that the only counseling a child may get is from someone who is not allowed to discourage it. One article I read said the current practice in some cases is to offer suicide as a treatment option I.e. "you can...

    Assisted Dying.

    This hits close to home as me and more than one of my friends went through states of depression as teenagers. When I was 15 I was in really bad shape, now I'm 43 with 8 kids of my own and my oldest is 15. Thankfully they are much happier than I was at their age. Had we been allowed this without...

    Assisted Dying.

    So this is where I got my original information. I thought I had verified it but I guess I was still too mad to think clearly. Now every link I find on the subject that isn't from Fox suggests the GOC is planning to study the mature minor eligibility criteria and one even mentioned that there is...

    Assisted Dying.

    They are also making it so children who are considered "mature minors" can get assisted suicide without parents knowledge. Your 15 year old could go to school and tell someone they are depressed, go to a hospital and commit suicide and you would be left wondering why they didn't come home on...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I still think we should steal British ship names like HMCS Conquerer, Victorious, Indomitable and Magnificent. We can call them the 'Bad Ass Class'

    I am a heavy duty diesel mechanic, I don't normally work on 1 ton's but I do from time to time. All 1 ton's I have worked on have Unimount style wheels. I have not seen what you described in my career. By that I mean where the inner wheel is mounted behind the hub. It is common to need to remove...

    Aircraft commander, has urged the UK Ministry of Defence to reconsider the early retirement of the C-130J Hercules fleet.

    https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/british-fleet-of-c-130-hercules-aircraft-put-up-for-sale/ UK MOD has put their 14 C-130j's up for sale, any chance we will pick these up?

    You are mostly right except the two areas I highlighted in yellow. Dual wheels on farm tractors are built the way you describe but trucks are not. Truck Duals are built with all the same wheels and both wheels slide on the hub then are sandwiched by the wheel nuts. the "dish" of the wheel is...
