    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    It's hard to tell with the RCN somedays. I'm optimistic we'll get another Tribal class with FN buy in, but also wouldn't be surprised if we went with something inherently taupe with crests and mottos to match. HMCS Beige - 'Forever forgettable' HMCS Buff - 'Bland is best' HMCS Ecru - 'Meh'

    PSHCP - Frustration abounds as public service health plan gets switched to Canada Life

    So does this mean I still use Sunlife for dental for the dependent claims? When I inquired about 4 months ago, they sent me some steps to add it on, but still not included. My wife has it on hers as a PS employee for my daughter, but thought for Reg Force our Sunlife fully moved over last summer.

    PSHCP - Frustration abounds as public service health plan gets switched to Canada Life

    Is anyone else having trouble with the dental coverage being rolled in? Mine is still only showing the drug and health benefits for dependents (and weirdly my birthday in the profile is actually my wife's). GOing to submit a claim anyway, but jumped through their hoops already to add it on and...

    Assassination Attempt on Slovakian PM - May 15/2024

    Usually the most ridiculous thing I can think of is less stupid than reality, but maybe this was a weird attempt at making a false flag attack against the pro russian side to unite them? Wouldn't even be the stupidest thing I've heard today. I still can't tell if some people actually think...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    My favourite ones are the implosions of old buildings; one company has a 15 minute montage of their work. Probably collectively centuries of experience and months of planning for each job for 5-10 seconds of awesome.

    PROOF THAT 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB SHEEPLE! Pretty awesome work if you can get it. Controlled explosions set off on collapsed Baltimore bridge during cleanup Controlled explosions set off on collapsed Baltimore bridge during cleanup 1 hour ago Duration0:30 Controlled explosions set off on...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Figuring out how to break things is a great way to build them better, and usually a lot safer than finding out in some kind of fatal accident (which spawns things like SOLAS regulations after Titanic). Also, even with no injuries those plants run into the hundreds of millions of dollars (or...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Had to do a bit of research about LNG fires for something, and interesting (to me) is that the AFFF foam still forms a barrier preventing off gassing, but happens because the LNG is -185 C or something so it actually freezes the AFFF (which is mostly water) and the ice layer is what stops the...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I don't think the CG will want to do that for some fairly practical reasons; their current level of internal bureaucracy is a fraction of what DND does, and there are enough senior CCG people that came from the RCN to be aware of that and how much it slows things down and complicates them. They...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    That specific one is a rockwool IMO rated A-15 insulation. Intumescents coating have been trialed before but don't work well on moving platforms; the protective char layers fall off with normal movement. Instead we just use specific coatings that have limits on some fire properties, smoke and...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Sadly, me too; realized I was an outlier when talking to peers when I start losing track of which fire on which class I was on when we were talking about some emergencies we had been around for. Fortunately they all got handled fairly quickly, but amazing how long it takes to clean up, clear up...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Less for enthusiasts, more for folks that run up on a cold door while responding to a fire alarm, chuck it open, and get an 'o shit' moment when there is actually a fire right there. The fire responses happen a few times every month, and that's a big change from decades of plain steel doors and...

    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    That would be vigilante justice I think a lot of people could get behind. "I testified in Parliament, got threatened as a result, and my employer did nothing about it, so took it in my own hands. They were coming right for me, so it was self defence'. I mostly found the RCN claim of 'Privacy...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    I think the T26 model shown is an older rev of the design, but a lot of variations and artist renditions, so I wouldn't really take anything from it.. Not sure what the ghost ship is, but they are big on the idea of 'digital twin'. I guess it sounds sexier than 'paper ship' but basically have a...

    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    I think it did, but then explicitly said the MPs aren't investigating and don't intend to, which I had to read a few times to make sure I hand't dropped a word or something. Not that the unit investigation won't try, but random PO1/CPO2 that gets tagged with it hardly has the resources of the...

    King Charles III Coronation Medal

    So you are saying I shouldn't autodelete the 3-4 different L1 and L2 update emails that come in daily? :D It apparently was a line item in a defence team update email earlier this week, but hasn't specifically come around yet. Guess should expect that to be incoming, but at least there is a...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    I laughed at that bit as well; everytime they tout 'affordable housing' there is always an asterix or something, and it's defined as something like 80% of the market average price. It's less expensive, but it the market average is getting up to 700-800k, 80% of that is still out of reach for...

    King Charles III Coronation Medal

    I don't even think I saw nominations come around for this one. With the jubilee medals it was a mix of people who were great and was nice to see them recognized, and some self promotional complete assholes who probably nominated themselves, with some on the scale in between. Whatever, the way...

    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    It actually specifically says the MPs aren't investigating and have no plans to do so. Nothing like a little whisteblower/witness intimidation to get quick action I guess. The double (triple?) standards is interesting; there are plenty of people who have been crucified and identified by name in...
