    Nice effort. The RIMPAC pics have already been posted here I think. And most people here just directly go to Combat Camera if they want to see CF pics.

    Went back quite a ways, didn't see it. I know some ​RIMPAC pics have been posted already, but I didn't see these ones.

    That aside, if everyone just went to the official websites and didn't bother posting them here, the site might as well shut down.

    Some CJIRU promotional pics. Funny how the CANSOF website is filled with dead links.

    Is "never unprepared" a double negative?



    DND cutbacks require the CF to clean and reuse air filters...





    Others from Combat Camera.




    Sniper Course training...



    New helmets?

    Thanks for those promo pictures. They're pretty neat actually. I was a little faster than you with those combat camera pictures - they're part of my post just one page earlier.

    PS: Never unprepared isn't a double negative (because unprepared is one word, unlike 'not prepared')

    I suppose they don't feel confident enough to say "Always Prepared" - too much of a obligation. They can't guarantee they're always prepared, but at least the will never be completely unprepared.

    I remember seeing a video on this on the Army website, it's some snipers from R22eR training with some new rappelling kit/method. Might have just been some unit run training, not a Basic Sniper course.

    If they go with that new helmet system, I am going to find the one responsible and sh1t in his boots.

    Aaaaaargh, kill it with fire!
    A clear example of over-engineering a product..

    Clear example of the CF always reinventing the wheel and coming up with a octagon.

    Same person who came up with the design of the combat boots, installing accuwedge in the C8s, tac latch and we can go on.
