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...
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.

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...
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...
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...
Updated information is now available.
Note that this Swedish force will not be an additional Bn for the Bde but rather will be a 6 month rotation of forces into the previously...
Here are a couple pictures showing the current weapons outfit and configuration of 3 RCRs MRZRs.
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...
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...
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.
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...
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:
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.
No, that is the one from Friday.
This is the one from yesterday evening.
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...
