Other than the 6 formerly stationed at West Edmonton Mall, Canada went a lot of years without having many viable subs in the fleet at all. The three most recent were purchased second hand from the Brits, and one of them had a nasty fire on board.

The fact that we successfully did this without blowing ourselves up is an accomplishment, and is cause for overreactive chest thumping, IMO.

This is an exercise in formality, right? Like England having a queen? Who in their right mind is going to fark with Canada when
1. They don't bother anyone
2. They have full protection of a country to the south that has enough weapons to kill the earth's human population 5 times over
3. Jack Bauer was really Canadian
4. In hand to hand combat, each and every last citizen is skilled in knocking your helmet off, pulling your shirt over your head, and punching you repeatedly.

With the old jokes, my favorite was a brit commercial flight going into Berlin. The pilot was yelled at by the control tower and asked if he had been to Berlin before. The pilot calmly commented "yes, but it was in the '40's and I didn't stop to land. I just turned around and went back home."

A US Naval spokesperson was quoted as saying, "Well, we felt bad that they hadn't ever destroyed a target so we sort of decided to let them slip one by. We figured it'd be good for morale. I mean, we feel really bad for them, it's so cold up there with them living in their igloos with their pet polar bears and what-not, it just seemed to be a gentlemanly thing to do by letting them win one, we figured it'd raise their spirits."

ha-ha-guy: Well our GOA estimates we'll be using them for 50 years and the price per unit is 135 million per plane given the latest state of the project in 2012. So that's 50 years of access for upgrades and the like for a decent per unit price. A Gen 1 EF2K is 105 million and a Gen 2 is 196 million dollars. For 4.5 gen fighters you could get a Saab Gripen at 60 million a unit, a top of the line Su-35 at 65 million, or 100 million for a Silent Eagle (although that is Boeing's sale price and they always have overruns). So it's like we ripped you off on the price of a 5th gen fighter. It's just going to take a couple of years longer and these things always farking take longer than planned.


I'm not saying the US ripped us off on that deal. I'm saying that, whether we're tagging along with our southern cousins or not, our procurement record is absolute shiate with few exceptions. The Halifax class frigate being one of those exceptions, as you point out elsewhere in the thread.

As for the Upholder/Victoria purchase, I don't think the Canadian public will ever, in my lifetime, have an appetite for SSNs, thus the SSK purchase. This is, in my uneducated and taking a wild guess opinion, due to the fact that as soon as somebody says "nucular submarine", our average citizen has images of Dubya's talking head accompanied by an inset video image of a Trident II poking its nose out of the water.

ha-ha-guy: /next thing you know they'll be designing their own fighters again and then biatching about engineering costs


And when they cancel the program due to ballooning costs, they'll biatch about how the US made them do it.

tko78: Tagging along with the Americans is working out really well for us in sourcing a replacement to our CF-18s.


To be fair, though, everybody is taking it in the shorts on that one. The Candians aren't alone in paying way more for those things than originally promised.

OK, this comment made me laugh:

We should be proud; Be proud that despite its small contingent the Canadian Forces are among the best trained in the world our personal are arguably better trained as a whole then the US Army. Although the US has better equipment, you can give monkey a state-of-the-art combat weapon but it is still a money using a state-of-the-art weapon. We should be proud that even with a small armed forces we have shown the high degree of organization, strategy and combat skills our men and woman posses. and that despite our many logistical issues we can still be a respected military force on the world stage. We should be proud that our military does not have a tarnished reputation of invading foreign nations and occupying them at the expense of our own people. And we should be proud that Canada was largely responsible for preventing the Germans from overwhelming England in WWII and fought in that war longer then the America's. We should also be proud that Canadians as a people are strong, proud, reserved but ready to jump to the challenge of defending our nation should the need arise.

excuse me, but HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
