    Later. I don't have time with two kids under 3 to work AND take classes.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    That's why I'm staying in the PRes: so technically I will still have my rank. ;)

    Hard to say because I don't know enough about their radars. Both of the Slava's main radars are 3D air-search radars, so she has some redundancy. If she lost one, the other would still be available, but again some radars are better at picking up sea-skimmers than others, and if her radars were...

    It depends on what weapons it's carrying. Anti-Radiation Missiles home-in on a specific radar frequency band, and the radar it's homing in on would likely be the point of impact. In theory such missiles would do a LOT more damage then just "take out a radar" (which wouldn't require much damage)...

    Did they technically have sufficient radars and a combat managements system capable of seeing both a loitering UAV and incoming sea-skimmers? Probably. Did they physically have enough trained personnel to detect and assess both the loitering UAV and the incoming sea-skimmers? Also, probably...

    Lets assume an HR deployer, in which case I'm going with 17.

    So, first you have to understand how Anti-Ship Cruise Missiles (ASCMs) work. They are fire and forget weapons. All you need to do is tell them where the target is, and they will fly out and find it on there own. You can provide the missile with that targeting info by literally any means. You...

    I'm hopeful, but given how old the Slava's are, I wouldn't be surprised if this was an internal fire cause by a non-combat related incident/mechanical fault.

    I believe it was read by the judge and factored into the decision. It just wasn't expressly read out loud.

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    Adrenaline response, maybe? So much death and chaos that in the thick of it they truly believed she was deceased even when evidence the contrary was present?

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    I'm pro "climate action spending", but after hearing two councillors on the radio talk about what that 3% was going to, I lost my shit. They said that one of the biggest destinations for that money was to buy electric busses. The problem is, electric vehicles are only as clean as the grid they...

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    I keep hearing this a lot, but I'm not sure what everyone is referring to. I would objectively say that all of our sailing has had a purpose with an operational focus. Trials, readiness training, and deployment. You might be referring to other sailing events such as support to SOF exercises...
