Mushroom colored boots? Id be curious to see that. I left the military so I dont get to hear about the new gear anymore.
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.
"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.
Sold! we'll take em!

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![*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Canadian Army personnel conducted Exercise STALWART GOOSE (Ex SG 13) near Deer Lake, Newfoundland, from January 24 to 27, 2013.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Approximately 200 soldiers from Canadian Army Reserve units in New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador participated in Ex SG 13.
