HI Everyone,

Below is a local newspaper talking about the JSS with mentions of JSS2 and OSFV.

Question here:

Will these JSS be as capable as the old Provider etc? Forgive me but I am a crayon eating landlubber.

If you are on the DWAN

The Royal Canadian Navy needs support ships. The Joint Support Ship (JSS) project will deliver two new ships, as outlined in Strong, Secured, Engaged, Canada’s defence policy. These Joint Support Ships are being built for the RCN under the National Shipbuilding Strategy and will replace the auxiliary oiler replenishment (AOR) vessels that reached the end of their operational lives.

The future Joint Support Ship will provide:

  • Underway Support to Naval Task Groups: Underway support is best described as the re-supply of fuel, food, ammunition, spare parts and other supplies between ships at sea. This includes the operation and maintenance of helicopters, as well as task group medical and dental facilities;
  • Limited Sealift: JSS will be capable of transporting and delivering cargo both in support of task group operations and in support to operations ashore; and
  • Limited Support to Operations Ashore: To meet a range of possibilities in an uncertain future security environment, the JSS will leverage its onboard facilities to support operations ashore, including anything from combat to humanitarian and disaster relief.
  • Self-defence functions and the ability to respond to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats to allow for operations in high threat environments.

I don't believe construction has started on the second JSS. Glad to be proven wrong however!
it says

"Steel for the second joint support ship was cut in May of this year – the large grey panels are visible in a number of the shipyard’s steel-cutting and early welding shops."

they should build a third AOR Provider and transfer the other Polar Icebreaker to Davie assuming Davie can get past what ever hurdles it has

Long lead items would have to have been ordered a few years ago to permit a third of class to be built without interruption.
Seaspan looks to be heading toward an interruption regardless as I haven't heard of anything with respect to the Polar icebreaker or the MPV. Irving at least has a clearer view of their next few years as they transition to the CSC

One thing that caught my eyes is the delivery of the first MPV being 2029, so there build would dovetail with JSS2 and Polar icebreaker. One thing i don’t know is how fast a moderately efficient yard can build a 25,000 diesel electric ship.


One thing I’ve noticed about the Polar class build is that the design is being done by Seaspan exclusively. I’m still trying to find reliable design images.

That 2029 date for first CCG MPV is fairy land if the polar breaker is built first. There's also the OOSV to come from Seaspan.
