  1. We love photos

    That top photo looks familiar, was that the Leo C2 Lav III combat team tactic trials in Wainwright about 17 years ago?

    Thanks for the invite. 9'er domestic has some ideas for Sunday assuming the weather is good so hope for rain....🤨
  4. Modern BMS do have those tools, but someone with a map, compass and a pair of binoculars has to input the location of most of the enemy contacts at some point. Also, sometimes the old school is better in the modern world. The lesson that sticks with me is coming across a US Army MP 2Lt who was lost. The batteries in his PLGR were dead and he had not been taught to navigate with map and compass. Nor had his driver. His Sgt was the only one in his pl who could use a map and compass and he was elsewhere with a section. I taught him to do a resection and left him to find his way to the RV. Imagine when we fight the Soviets, er Russians next time and we need to do so under EMCON 1.
  5. (Concepts) as stitching and planning for blank map

    CAS sorties normally use low level transit corridors flying to and from the FEBA which have a slightly removed relationship with the terrain. Not unconcerned with terrain features but more concerned with location of AMA's etc.

    I still prefer to see FLOCARK done on talc with overhead markers. PowerPoint is not conducive to a proper terrain analysis.

    Funny, I don't know anywhere, anyone liked in the rain in Gagetown. Except maybe F-2 or F-6 by the fireplace with a whiskey.

    Interesting, we have been using LCol Mouat's Mapsymbs font and the MilIcon generator unfortunately they are based on App-6a and it is a bit clunky now. I'll see if we can get this one on the network a if I can get it past the ISO. Cheers
  9. Its taken 55 years but finally

    My Father, who joined the RCAF in 1942 and retired in 1969 didn't believe me when I told him things some of my friends and some of my troops told me when they got back... And leading up to it http://www.history.ca/100-years-of-remembrance/gallery/sector-sarajevo/
  10. Need a hand getting up to speed

  11. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Related: the ability to reorg your C/S to replace cas and regain some cbt effectiveness. For example, your troop is down 2 veh, one with turret damage and a dead gunner, the other has a dead cmd from small arms fire, the tk cmd from the damaged tk could replace the dead one in the undamaged tk and your back to 75% from 50%.
  12. Missed you by 20 min. not usually home in time for this but the Mess was closed due to water in the lower bar...Will try again next week.

    Yes, as I discovered last week for TGIF... And just to add to the confusion, AST is not currently observed anywhere, it is ADT now... UTC -4 is currently = EDT...
  14. Roger. Maybe the instructions should be updated? Anyway I will try to be there it will be easier to do an hour earlier than later!
  15. Well, I dug my old map of Gagetown out and dropped in to TS 20 min early to find the battle in full swing and did not want to drop in mid battle. Has the TGIF timing changed from 0300 GMT? Maybe next week I can get online in time. Cheers!
