    Was that a serious post??

    Replacing the Subs

    It's been pretty satisfying to have taken part in "that stuff". I honestly consider myself very lucky. Red Storm Rising is another good one. Battle of the Atlantic stuff...including the power of naval air forces.

    Replacing the Subs

    Mk 48 = 1,000lb warhead Mk 46 = 100lb warhead Mk48 can also be "steered" by the sub after firing...open source and fiction, but SSN by Clancy is a decent read (if a little biased...).

    Replacing the Subs

    There's so many variables, there's no real "DS solution" when it comes to ASW. I've been fortunate enough to hold sensor/visual contact on friendly and adversary sub-surface contacts (Ex's and Op's) , work co-op with MH/surface/subsurface joint forces etc. I'm not an expert, by any means...

    Replacing the Subs

    Including magnetically "quieter" (generally speaking...there's factors that affect that of course). MAD can be an attack sensor... Speed = loud, too, though and severe sensor degradation for the boat...double-edge sword for them.

    Replacing the Subs

    I'm not sure I 100% understand your thought on this one; it would be rare thing IMO for a single hull to be out there on it's own. There's a fairly significant amount of sensory capability airborne, surface and sub-surface...putting a torp in the water is like turning on a spotlight at night...

    Replacing the Subs

    To add quickly for those not as famil with ASW stuff, that is also (semi) effective ASW. I might not 100% support the "dead" part, but just because I believe the '46 lacks punch, but damaged/out of combat is a kill of sorts. A few ships with tails, a Cyclone dip pair and a 140 w/4 fish? 46s...

    Sometimes. I recall one CASEX with an LA, the Mad Marks on the TacPlot looked a like a 3 year olds connect-the-dots drawing. :D

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

    I didn't know him, but I still remember the incident...surprised me to read "1995". Has time sped up? RIP, Cpl.

    SHOES FOR OFFICERS AND CWO

    That's the main reason I started wearing oxfords anytime possible. I got tired of investing my time into shitty ankle boots that look shitty after realistic amounts of effort put into the shine. I'm getting older and have less time and GAFF for things like this...

    Replacing the Subs

    Marshaw, back in the late 90s. The timeline could be right; 95 was when the Royal Netherlands Navy took over the SSK Perisher course if this is correct. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Submarine_Command_Course Also interesting...

    SHOES FOR OFFICERS AND CWO

    Here's the only "shall" I think you'll find in 265 IRT ankle boots: CH 5, Annex C Service Dress No. 3 5. Skirts and pumps shall not be worn on parade. For Army members, boots ankle shall be the normal footwear ordered worn on parade...

    Replacing the Subs

    Yep; some of it is discussed in the book Submarine by Tom Clancy. There's comparison and discussion points on the LA Class and Trafalgar class boats, including the different LA flights, as well as comparison of both navies' "Command Colleges". You might be correct....I changed my post to...

    Replacing the Subs

    Has Canada ever had an exchange officer/NCM onboard USN nuc's before? If not...why not? There's a reason if the answer is "no". I think RCN Officers have been on RN SSNs, at the very least while attending PERISHER. That was on T-boats, I can't comment on if a RCN Officer has witnessed the...

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    You're right and I shouldn't have been so lazy in my post. From CANFORGEN 045/20, para 5(d)... "score controls and the practice of using unit/formation/group ranking boards to directly influence PER scoring in any form has ceased" The highlighted portion above is the part I should have used...

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    CFPAS mandated Initial PDRs, with at least 2 feedback sessions (the PER debrief counting as 1 of those). How'd THAT go for the CAF? A CANFORGEN claimed "PER score control via unit boards was eliminated" or words to that effect. Anyone want to put their hand on their heart and say "that is a...

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    I hear "possibilities" only and don't track this topic out of personal interest, but the RUMINT I've heard points to central C2, airframes distributed to more than 1 MOB. I'll likely be CRA, or close, before this happens so...

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    That means transits to "anywhere"....you don't think like SAR, LRP and MH they'll be divided coast to coast with a central GCS facility? B-ville was mentioned before as a "possibility" for location and I can say for certain, interest in my trade for the Payload positions was negatively affected.
