    Ukraine - Superthread

    Absolutly no use if they are destroyed by the Russians or worn out by the Ukrainians. Anything that can shoot and that can make it to Taiwan can be a threat to China. If western countries send all their excess kit to Ukraine they won't have it to send to Taiwan. If western countries send kit...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    After listening to this podcast and other conversations between these two men I thnk Rex Murphy should run for PM. He has a really good handle on Canada and what this country needs going forward. His career as a journalist has given him great insight on Canadians wants and needs and on what...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    That is likely China's master plan. NATO and other western countries deplete their war stocks supporting Ukraine against Russia so when China attacks Taiwan we have little left to help Taiwan with and therefore think twice. Putin played into Xi's plan like a good puppet. The only resource we...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    If the west eliminates Putin his supporters will be fired up and anti Ukraine sentiment will spread in Russia and elsewhere. If Putin is eliminated from within his legacy will be shamed and pro Ukraine sentiment will likely grow everywhere. Remember many Russians like putin and what he is doing...

    A man who undestands People, A man who understands his people and A man brave enough to stand up to bullies! where can we get one of those? Hell right now I would settle for one of the three!

    Future Armour

    But couldn't you do the same job with a sensor rich UAV or a sattalite and not risk a crew. 1 crew flys a recon UAV and designates targets and other crews fly loitering munitions or they are semi autonomus. No one has to get close to the enemy. When all the large targets are disabled your...

    Future Armour

    So what does the tank actually do? Won't they get a similar effect operating the loitering munitions from a FOB?

    Netherlands Selects C-390 to Replace Hercs

    I get more of a 2 engine BAE-146 vibe from it. I have no idea why. 🤷‍♂️

    Netherlands Selects C-390 to Replace Hercs

    The KC-390 looks small in pictures, like C-27 size. I was supprised to learn it is larger than the C-130J

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

    I think the u.s. dosent want us having any subs. There is something about declaring they are in our waters. If we have subs they have to ask so as not to hit one. If we don't have any they can run subs in our waters without permission. Not my words but someone on this forum talked about it before

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

    Do they need to, if they are using UK reactors why not just get UK to service them? If the only nuclear power in country is the subs than sail them to England for planned reactor work. And if there is unplanned reactor work then it dosent matter where you are, you are screwed.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    There used to be a couple floating dry docks in Halifax, this was 1995 or so. I was 15 and I didn't know who owned them but I seen them from the Bridge and it was explained to me what they were and how they worked. I'm pretty sure one of them was quite large for the Iroquois class. Are they...

    Stop calling Switchblades ‘drones’ — it’s causing policy confusion

    Interesting, I always thought a ship needed a Captain and a boat just required an operator certificate. I have no idea where the line between those two are either.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Very true. United we stand, divided we fall! Lots of people can't see that division is being cultivated to weaken us.

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    Who wants to watch a missile fire and disappear, only to watch a blip on radar disappear also? BVR missiles are awesome but boring in a movie.

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    If the DND uses coast guard spending in the NATO spending calculation then we are in worse shape then I thought. They should at least strap a .50 cal to the deck and pretend they are armed if they want NATO credit for coast guard dollars.

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    All those contribute to the mission of combat arms. Unarmed coast guard vessels not so much. If our coast guard was armed like most other countries then sure. How will our coast guard help if China attacks...well anywhere? Politely ask them to leave?
