I've always thought that the concept of the SSF was flawed, basically a light Brigade, with the CAR, some light artillery and a troop of Lynx capable of being air dropped. No direct fire weaponry, limited anti-tank capability and extremely limited anti-air capability.
Cdnleaf said:Not sure about that, prior to 2 Bde it was as capable as anything was in the CF at the time. DF=2 RCHA, AA = 1 AD Regt, AT = Tow Pl and RCD. Some might suggest that the inf bn had more teeth at the time with Pioneers, Tow and Mortars.
Completely agree with the point about the PT. All the best.
It most certainly does, and could also go further than that.Swingline1984 said:Scoty B,
Lots of talk here ref the FSSF. Have you thought of affiliating your associations? They are well ahead of you as an organization and your proposed group could go a long way in preserving their memory. Although I do believe their current Canadian ties lie with CANSOFCOM and CSOR more specifically, the SSF does share that lineage and could only enhance the relationship.
