Its certainly is a step in the right direction but I advocate a 3 battalion airborne regiment.

I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but the days of the massed airborne drop are a faded memory. IIRC Panama was the last time a drop occurred. Even that was a Bn - gig.

tomahawk6 said:Recruit Gurhka's but I find it hard to believe that Canada cant recruit a 2000 man regiment. The Army is too small as it is and needs more trigger pullers and I am sure there are wasteful personnel practices with folks. We had the same problem in the late 90's early 2000. People were moved out of staff,school house and other places they were hiding and manned our combat units to 104%.
tomahawk6 said:The reality for me is that a Canadian naval contingency force could not arrive in time to be useful, so that just leaves a force that can be deployed by air. Instead of an LPHD type ship buy a couple more C-17's.

Media rumour, we have no Marines. Besides, that same article said it was included in the "Canada First" defence paper ... which has yet to be released. In fact, the CDS issued a CANFORGEN dispelling these very same rumours which also stated to wait until it is officially released. Who knows when though.N.Grundle said:but there was an article
