    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Thats a lot for a big institution. Sometimes the problem has to get really big before anyone pays attention I guess. For any small business Ive been involved with we 10% attrition would have been considered a good year. But I have a feeling the CAF are losing the people that actually do the work...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Yeah that seems like a bad number. its been known that recruitment and retention have been a problem for a long time. Its been talked about on this site. I mean 9.3% is going to be an insurmountable problem if not fixed quickly. Can the CAF do that? It also doesnt help when people wait 2 years...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Forgetting the Navy and Airforce for a second what is the Army doing that is stressing it so much? A peacetime deployment to Latvia? At what point is it the CAF's and CDS's responsibility to be able to deliver? Quite frankly the CAF's dont seem like value for money. Is it because the funding is...

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    Ok I understand now from an industrial setup standpoint there would probably be much more in it to set up lines for SK technology transfers

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    Well Im probably less of an expert than anyone but I think its more likely that the equipment represents Korean solutions to the problem, those solutions will have their pros and cons depending on the utilization. I think the K2 is going to replace the Leo2 eventually once up and running or...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    something I've long thought as well. The law is more consistent and logical now just not to my benefit last time for me it was 5 acres I think and I have mostly managed to avoid capital gains but its not easy

    Ukraine - Superthread

    https://vizoryx.vercel.app/ on open source losses, looks like Oryx has some work to do to catch up on Russian equipment losses. How do they or can they identify individual pieces of equipment in a yard though?

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    NATO actually needs a plan on munitions and war stocks for every member. Right now no company is stepping up until they have firm contracts which makes sense. Does Canada need its own artillery munitions production? It doesn't seem to make sense that we would need to make our own artillery...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Is the P-8 unsuitable for SAR or just a poor choice. Is there a need for another platform to take the strain off the ASW? Does it have to be manned? Is it more economical to run another platform. SAR would seem to be a secondary job at best and if the CC-295's problems arent resolved by the time...

    Haitian leaders must all agree before Canada would lead a potential military intervention, Trudeau says
