    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Sorry, meant to say- AMS in RMC (clerk there is an AS1 or 2) and sections in DRDC (clerks there are AS1 or 2). Both look after between 30 and 50 people.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Hahaha. Sgt=Chief Clerk at small unit. Very small unit OR that is run by civilians (DRDC, RMC spring to mind) are run by an AS1 or AS2 with AS1, CR3 and 4s working for them, so the civil service equivalent would be 61 to 65k per year. You get pretty good value for that extra 8k from the Sgt.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Trophy is an hard kill APS so not comparable to Shtora, more equivalent to Arena (very limited use), Drozd (obsolete), and Afghanit (T14 only). Yeah, you need something to cue the system to react and that's normally a laser hitting the target. You can see some videos where the SKIF gunner is...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Shtora is also designed to spoof the firing post 9f SACLOS missiles by providing alternative missile beacons. Of course your beacon has to emit in the same frequency at the same rate as Shtora for your firing post care. There are relatively few LBR ATGMs made by the west kicking around; SKIF...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    The bomb is an OZFAB-500 high explosive incendiary. It has a liquid fill, the filling hole is behind the rear suspension lug, you can see some leaking out onto the ground. The white cloth, who knows. Looks like it was taped on, maybe whoever found it marked it with that, dunno. The techniques...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Yesterday's news. A bunch of folks trying for an around the world drive next year. They thought it was a good idea to carry on with their Canadian test drive. https://cabinradio.ca/86775/news/plane-carrying-russians-is-grounded-in-yellowknife/

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Not really. Tochkas and Iskandars are ballistic missiles, and Tochkas have been flying pretty much since day from both sides.

    Apaches

    There are no Gazelles left in SU/C. Apaches would not do the job the Gazelles do there. They have brought Apaches over in the past to do Apache things.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Some theatre there and the crater might be dug, but in my experience it is quite possible to find the rocket motor in or near the crater. The picture at night does seem to have the right shape and some side spray, but the side spray is very narrow.

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

    Another point, Alberta requires a permit for body armour. I wonder, if those carriers have real plates, if the owners have permits.
