    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    The CAF is concerned about under strength Reg force. Is the GoC, or is it happy to avoid paying 10k more salaries each month for the time being? Curious how “in step” the MND and CDS are at this point..

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Edited after my second coffee for Islander English errors due to iPhone autocorrect.

    That might be the first Prof Level 5 I’ve ever seen right there!!

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I’ll add, not everyone is the LRP world or RCAF wants “to get P-8” although it’s the east, visible replacement. I think I can say, in the fleet, a huge majority want and see a new for a replacement, and we’ll before the GoC does anything about it. I’ll say 99.99% want a replacement because...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I’ll be CRA before FAcT is rolling…or the Aurora replacement is on a RCAF Wing. 😂

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Everything on the Aurora PLUS Aeropress which has to be better than the awful FF “coffee” I suffer with. :sick:

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I could bring home like… 9000 duvets from Scotland and sell them at a profit!

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    $$$$ is a major factor.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Everything we have in an Aurora will fit in/on a P-8, including a MAD system.

    The USN has declared IOC on HAAWC now, and with Mk 54s. https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/2022/11/u-s-navy-declares-ioc-for-boeings-haawc/

    100 pers/sortie. Seems like an improvement to me over our current capability. https://www.navair.navy.mil/news/P-8A-gets-new-tool-extended-search-and-rescue-capability/Tue-10082019-1117

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    The LRP fleet does not do any kind of Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) mission. The P-8A does not do AEW&C; that is done by aircraft such as the Hawkeyes, Sentry’s and Wedgetails. Canada does not have AEW&C aircraft. There is no project to procure AEW&C aircraft. The RCAF...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I don’t think you understand a DMS (data management system), IMS (integrated mission system) on an aircraft or a TDES (Tactical data exchange system aka Link) that well. This is what happens on modern aircraft now. Yet the P-8 has been successfully conducting missions for years. I’m...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Doubtful; the NOAA P-3s are kitted out and maintained at levels the RCAF wouldn’t consider.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    @MTShaw Ever been in one? I have. They're bigger than an Aurora on the inside, and laid out very nicely. I'd love to have that tac tube to work in. "Only ASW"; I've done co-op with P-8s doing high-alt surveillance tasks on operations. I've done co-op with them on low-level, non-ASW tasks...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    That too; I think they put SAR in there and at the top because Joe and Jane Public know what that is (kind of). I would say during my Op Sqn tour, the crews I was on were involved in SAR taskings/missions 3-4 times a year and it's something we practice pretty frequently, across the fleet. Our...

    Are promotions required in the Calendar year or in the Fiscal Year?

    I did find this while searching here for CFAO 49-4: https://army.ca/forums/threads/promotion-backpay-criteria.135454/#post-1735901

    Are promotions required in the Calendar year or in the Fiscal Year?

    Copy....49-4 IIRC. tks! * so the same policy doesn't exist for Officers or something similar?

    Are promotions required in the Calendar year or in the Fiscal Year?

    Reviving an old one; I'm without DVPNI at the moment. What policy is the one that speaks to "if you are bypassed on the promotion/merit list, you shall be promoted on Dec 1st of that year". Is it a MILPERSCOM Instr? CFAO? I couldn't find a Promotion/Career policy DAOD.
