    BAE NGAA - Next Generation 155mm bullet

    A CCF reduces the CEP, you still need to push a 100lb projectile 40+km. That's a lot of KE you need to overcome to make changes in direction. The CCF makes sure the unexpected ballistic variations encountered along the way are mitigated. Always regard vendors material as wildly optimistic at...

    Updated Army Service Dress project

    That's a high waist and short trousers. Who designed it, Archie Bunker? Also, ugly hat on the skirt option.

    UOR new equipment

    Potato-asparagus. It could have been better. It was a political purchase for Canadian-French technical cooperation. France provided a slightly sub-par missile. Canada apparently provided the Mirabel sight. We may have not liked it, but some of other countries bought multiple tranches of it.

    UOR new equipment

    They were getting old, early. Due to a lack of climate controlled storage the flight motors were starting to crack causing bursting. Needed a ballistic blanket like on some TOW.

    RMC Culture, etc

    You have to do the job or pay back tuition. You don't get to definitively choose where the job is. If you suck at the job you chose, you will get assigned another one that may, or may not be one you like. You maybe be put in life threatening situations without an option to say no.

    Business Class for TD Travel

    When I travelled at lot in DND, 10-16, we could get business class even though there were some severe travel restrictions. Basically it came down if it was short notice and you did not have time to arrange a rest day or layover. If you could do either it was economy for you.

    Entire police department in Minnesota city resigns

    Rephrased for clarity, all credit to brihard as origninal author: This kind of thing isn't rare because it is rife with nepotism, corruption, terrible pay, major OH&S issues.

    Infantry training in Air Force

    I was pretty angry at our wasted time when the depot's shipper and I had to take the morning to go into Saskatoon to pay the sales tax on two tractor trailers of TOW that had showed up the night before.

    Infantry training in Air Force

    Is it the security guard regulations that were 8ntroduced a few years ago? Or was it just shenanigans at the time? I didn't really question it as I had seen the armed security guards in CFE.

    In Canada it's Petty Officer 1st Class or Warrant Officer, Master Warrant Officer or Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class, or Chief Warrant Officer or Chief Petty Officer 1st Class.

    Infantry training in Air Force

    The 80s were a dangerous time in Ottawa to walk past an embassy. The special constabls outside the embassies had a number of NDs. Including potshots at squirrels with a MP5, and putting a 9mm round through the side of the 'bullet proof' cabin they sat in.
