    UOR new equipment

    Yes, I know. I’m merely assuming that Spike and Javelin are likely roughly comparable in cost. Hence the comparison of our 32.2 to 75 Million USD as a very rough but probable guess of what our UOR contract will contain in terms of firing posts, missile numbers, etc. I was unclear in...

    UOR new equipment

    This is a couple months ago now but Canada did announce the winner of the ATGM UOR. Minister Blair announces measures to strengthen Canada’s military presence in Latvia The announcement doesn’t go into details but it is a 32.2 Million USD contract. Here the US State Department published a...

    Hamas invaded Israel 2023

    What is the actual least worse outcome? I think most states follow something similar to Canada’s position. "Canada recognizes the Palestinian right to self-determination and supports the creation of a sovereign, independent, viable, democratic and territorially contiguous Palestinian state...

    Hamas invaded Israel 2023

    Israel is obviously involved in the solution but I agree that they can’t solve it in any context nominally permissible in today’s society. The Palestinians need to want to solve it and need to want to make a two state system work. I don’t think it’s credible to argue that the Palestinians have...

    Hamas invaded Israel 2023

    Completely aside from Israel and Hamas, the entire course of human history does not support rightness, wrongness, legal or illegal territorial transfers. The last 80-100 years have only done a marginal job of convincing the entire human race that seizing ground by force is illegal according to...

    Army has too many infantry, armor lieutenants, asks some to switch to combat-support jobs

    I am assuming that you mean that those who fail Infantry or Armour DP1.1 and then choose a different trade. I agree that in the not so distant past that was the case with a failure rate of over 50% but with the drive in the last several years to reduce that failure rate to less than 10% what...

    Hamas invaded Israel 2023

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/israel-gaza-genocide-international-court-justice-hague-south-africa-1.7084682 As a post national state, Canada will not make a decision for itself but will let a UN body decide for it. I suspect that Trudeau will back whatever the ICJ says and say it’s not up...

    I will reserve judgment on that until after the next federal election.

    Logistic Vehicle Modernization Project - Replacing everything from LUVW to SHLVW

    Given the project is only looking at 96 armoured kits, my guess is that any thing above a Battle Group size deployment will have a significant amount of non armoured vehicles around. Anti Taliban force design indeed.

    Logistic Vehicle Modernization Project - Replacing everything from LUVW to SHLVW

    Interesting that the CAF specifically stated that it’s not a one for one replacement as modular packages will allow for less vehicles.

    Logistic Vehicle Modernization Project - Replacing everything from LUVW to SHLVW

    So will ours come with a RWS like the German ones?

    Canadian Army recruiting video - 2024

    I’m thinking you’re right. The CAF needs a diverse skill base, not everyone will be attracted by a hard sea trade nor a hard combat arms position nor suitable for such in temperament etc but perhaps cyber operations as a example does fit. Having the different trades and jobs displayed is...

    Canadian Army recruiting video - 2024

    Well technically that one is the Army’s. This is the CAFs most recent one.

    Canada needs a climate-emergency response team

    A lot of people only use nameplate generation capacity, which doesn’t really mean much. It’s the capacity factor in summer and winter that actually makes a difference. Here is some info on those terms: https://www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.php?id=101&t=3 Bottom line is nuclear is the gold...

    It was a 300mega watt CoGen plant, HR Milner that went down at noon approximately on Friday, it was back up by 7pm. This is a good detailed breakdown of what happened on Friday. https://pipelineonline.ca/alberta-goes-under-grid-alert-5-hours/#/?playlistId=0&videoId=0

    Canada needs a climate-emergency response team

    No, that is the one from Friday. This is the one from yesterday evening. https://www.alberta.ca/aea/cap/2024/01/13/2024-01-13T18_44_42-07_00=AlbertaEmergencyManagementAgency=1489313F-98D9-4737-8FA1-E84EB73520EC.htm

    Canada needs a climate-emergency response team

    It was Friday that the one NG plant went down temporarily. It was back up for Saturday. The province has two more NG plants coming on line this summer that will add about 900 megawatts of capacity to the already existing 12.000 ish megawatts of NG power capacity. All told the province has...

    Houthi Red Sea Blockade

    I believe we also have a couple pers in the CAOC in Qatar. I imagine that the CAOC was involved as well so we can count them as well to up our numbers game.
