xx Army.ca Wiki Editors Wanted

September 22, 2020, 08:31:57 by Mike Bobbitt
All,

A few years back, we added a Wiki to Army.ca, and many members contributed to its content: https://army.ca/wiki

Recent changes in the forum and mediawiki software packages have made seamless login from one to the other impossible, and so the Wiki contents have stagnated. I am looking for a handful of editors who would be  willing to update and expand the information in the Wiki. For those who are able, I can manually create accounts and set you loose to make updates. Please let me know via PM or reply to this thread if you are interested, and thanks for helping to make Army.ca a better place!

Cheers
Mike

Navyca-Ico What Should I Know? Careers in the Navy..

October 08, 2020, 21:11:07 by mr14young
Hey guys,

So, I'm looking into joining the Navy, but I'm really not sure what career I want to pursue...
Now, BEFORE YOU GO AFTER ME, I just want to here some advice from people who are currently in the Navy, and personal experience with different roles on a ship.
I was originally looking into being a steward, but when I did more research I really wasn't interested in serving anyone, but rather do a different role (no offense to anyone who is a steward - I respect your job choice).
Anyways, I'm more interested in a job that would entail being part of boarding parties, perhaps more of the tactical side of it? Honestly, not really sure and it's driving me crazy, but it's so hard to just find some good, solid information and advice anywhere. I apologize if I come off sounding nieve, but I am lol
Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Navyca-Ico switching out of submarines

October 05, 2020, 20:02:38 by dirkpitt1211
Good afternoon all.  I am looking for advice to change from submarines to general navy service on kingston class boats (same power platform, very little cross training required).  Sustainment has made it VERY clear that i am not going anywhere as I am 1 of 4 qualified op certs able to sail and do the job.  this is not what i want anymore.  yes i understand i signed a contract, but several of my other trade submariners have made the successful jump to general service, but seemed to have an inside edge.  The BPSO i saw last time, sided with sustainment and my last 2 applications were squashed at the unit level and HQ level before even making it out of the building.
short of being insubordinate, what do you suggest as a work around?  My options so far are go crazy or release, neither are truthful or honourable in my opinion.

would really appreciate an insiders point of view
thanks!

clip RCN Weapons System (historical, current, planned)

August 16, 2020, 19:40:08 by CloudCover
We do not have a thread of RCN weapons systems that is recent, so thought I would start a new one.

I saw today the attached images in a twitter thread from HMCS Winnipeg. There is a video of Hammerhead UTV taking a pounding from 3 guns at close range  (Bofors, Phalanx and the new NWRS).

So it sounds like Winnipeg is fitted with either 2 or 4 NRWS which I gather can be operated remotely from the OPs room or at the mount itself. The barrel looks like it had some refurb work done as well.
Also, it sounds like the installation points are on bridge wings and quarterdeck, Port and Starboard.

I’ve tried to post the twitter link, but this web server blocks creation of the page with the link.  Maybe some else can try?

Edit: I think this will work- https://twitter.com/HMCSWinnipeg/status/1295048978073939968?s=20

Navyca-Ico How capable is the RCN?

August 13, 2020, 11:51:46 by EnchantedEng
I came across this article which partly talks about the Turkish maritime capability and some issues in the region: https://www.forbes.com/sites/pauliddon/2020/08/13/turkey-is-up-against-some-formidable-navies-in-the-eastern-mediterranean/

If I am not mistaken, Op Reassurance places the RCN frigates not too far from Turkey and the said issues.

I wonder how our frigates will fare, if say, were to get into a one time scuffle with one of Turkey's Corvettes or Frigates?

In the same line of thinking, how ready would the RCN be for a potential state of war?

Military Quote
What is a war criminal? Was not war itself a crime against God and humanity, and, therefore, were not all those who sanctioned, engineered, and conducted wars, war criminals? War criminals are not confined to the Axis Powers alone. Roosevelt and Churchill are no less war criminals than Hitler and Mussolini. England, America and Russia have all of them got their hands dyed more or less red - not merely Germany and Japan.
