    Our North - SSE Policy Update Megathread

    Could you get one up the Ottawa River & do a u-turn below parliament? Would make a nice picture taken from around the museum of civilization.

    The War in Ukraine

    Putin probably has comprehensive point AD coverage on his properties. Kleptocrats gotta look out for priorities.

    Our North - SSE Policy Update Megathread

    The ACSV is to LAV 6 what Queen Marry was to M113. Without a turret, the ACSV is taller than a LAV 6 with its turret. All the variants with enclosed passenger compartments have standing space in the back. This makes sense for a CP, EW veh, and even the A2 echelon ambulance. But accepting this...

    Our North - SSE Policy Update Megathread

    1. You skipped asking “should” before jumping to this. 2. What do you think the ACSV is that would cause you to want to put a turret in it?

    Our North - SSE Policy Update Megathread

    Maybe the crew commander can delegate the kill to the AI after confirming the target.

    Using Reg F (Military) SWE to pay PRes C-127?

    Is “SWE” the correct term for anything other than civilian pay?

    I thought SEP v4 was canceled to allow development of a lighter M1E3.

    The War in Ukraine

    Indeed. Announcing your red line lets the other guy know how far he can run before he has to slow down and start testing again. You quickly give-up your manœuvre space for options below hitting him with a missile.

    Assassination Attempt on Slovakian PM - May 15/2024

    But it has nothing to do with Ukraine. It might have something to do with Russia (TBC). We need to stop dropping everything under the heading “Ukraine” when it is loosely related Russia’s toxic revanchism and resultant frictions it’s causing in neighbouring nations.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    We need to more than double our equipment spending to get to the NATO target for equipment. The bureaucracy needs to get a lot more agile if we are going to get there. There are a lot of projects with significant momentum that are funded to a fraction the of their requirement; if he can figure...

    CAN Enhanced (Permanent?) Fwd Presence in Latvia

    This isn’t about “the medium is the message.” This is knowing your audience to tailor and direct your message to them. If your audience is not getting your message because you keep paying to put it in print newspaper but they are all watching channel 6, that is your failure. And if you need to...

    I suspect the bulk of OA (if not all) was before Anand’s tenure.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    No. That chart inflates the relative equipment expenditure of every nation underspending on defence, because it presents their equipment spending relative to a threshold which itself is below target for those nations. Canada is not alone in the “quadrant of shame” but we are actually deeper into...
