lenaitch said:There should be two each in cold Lake, Bagotville and Trenton to support arctic intercept response. I'm not convinced the tanker Hercs are fast or long-legged enough for an adequate tactical response. It's our arctic, we shouldn't have to rely on US for fuel. At the very least two in Winnipeg (split the east-west distance).
With the retirement of the Herc Hs looming, it looks like steps are being taken to ensure the RCAF can continue providing NORAD with a Canadian tanker capability.
