    Whisky War with Denmark?

    Honestly, I hope so; that's got to be the most peaceful "war" happening in the world right now. Personally, I agree to the suggestion of some to split Hans Island in half, west half to Nunavut, east half to Greenland. There, problem solved!

    Influence Activities Task Force - Nudging.

    If it saves lives because of all the armchair nurses saying "I know better", it should be allowed.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Well, if you want to go for "battle" names, you can't do better than choose fifteen from the following: Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Batoche Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Paardeburg Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Gallipoli Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Arras Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Beaumont-Hamel...

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    Honestly, if people are SO stupid that they'd refuse a PROVEN vaccine to protect themselves from a deadly pandemic, the sooner they're out of the CF the better. Never mind the whole "refuse a superior officer's direct order" thing, we don't NEED that level of STUPIDITY in the military!

    British army pulling out of Suffield

    Sad for Suffield, but I can understand why the British are moving to clear out of the area if they wish to reorientate to a more "global" posture; after all, our corner of the world is rather quiet in comparison to the Middle East and eastern Europe. Still, it would be good for 1 CMBG to spread...

    Dutch ships and designs and the possibilities for Canada

    Much that I admire all the work that the Dutch do when it comes to shipbuilding, I have to admit they're NOT so original when it comes to NAMING said ships. Honestly, recycling names again and again and again gets...well, BORING!

    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    Good for Australia. Now if only Canada could be so blessed, both with government will and foreign help.

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    If they're going to hook in head-mounted VR control tech to the UAV controls, I can seriously see this happening.

    The diff between RCAF & Army as sigint specialist

    Isn't that an Intelligence Operator or Communications Research Operator tasking?

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Personally, so am I. I just wish that the government would do something about getting more shipyards involved so we could get hulls into the water faster; not just the Type 26s but the AOPS, the JSS and everything else.

    Seeking an excuse to spend Defence $$ on a Bombardier plane

    Could we get a hold of a flight of these aircraft? Would they be able to fit into the RCAF?

    New Accommodations Facility at CFB Borden

    That's good. When I went to CFSAL in the late 1980s, there were new temp residence blocks close to the school building and that area's pretty crowded as is.

    New Accommodations Facility at CFB Borden

    Where exactly on the base is this going up? As noted before, Borden's quite the sprawl. Is it on the south side by CFSATE, the centre part by CFLTC or the north side by CFMPA?

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Brunswicker has a tender in MONCTON?! When did this happen?!

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Sweet! The sooner these ships get out of the way, the sooner the CSCs can be built!

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Now if only WE can be as fast in building those ships!

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Given where that kingpost is - and that it seems to be a temporary setup on the flight deck of all the places on the ship! - something tells me that doing a RAS evolution will be a sort of "done by necessessity" function. In other words, if an AOPS needs to fuel up, head to a port and do it there.
