    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.

    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.

    Hahaha, major thumbs up for that EOTech mount at 02:20, that's just hilarious!

    "Well the new helmet is not good, I can't shoot with it."

    "That's no Problem with the helmet. You just have to modify your rifle with a complete new part and adapt your kind of shooting, then everything will be fine..."

    Not meant to insult or troll, but that whole system could totally be german

    We're going to mount your EOtech sideways so your windage and elevation adjustments will all be ****ed and also you'll need to aim at the top of their head to hit them in the chest.

    Exercise PALADIN RESPONSE
    Approximately 200 Army Reserve Combat Engineers and supporting arms from LFWA and LFCA are participating in Exercise PALADIN RESPONSE 2012 around Chilliwack, B.C., over the holiday season.

    This exercise enables sappers to develop their technical and leadership skills in gap crossings of water and obstacles. A domestic operations scenario emphasizes cooperation with other arms and services within the Army's Territorial Battalion Group (TBG) model.

    You know, of all the peoples in the world, you'd expect the Canadians to have plenty of white in their wardrobes. Yet, someone in procurement must've forgotten to order white jackets/overcoats/whatever. I don't think I've ever even seen one!
