    It's just that our Coast Guard is a civilian entity and has no connection to our military. They occasionaly may train with our SAR Techs (they are military) but other than that we are in not related to each other. Our navy handles most soverenty issues/patrols (except in te Arctic...thaats usualy a Coast Guard job as they have the icebreakers) and our AF handles Anti-submarine work.

    Not even small arms? So how do they get the US fishermen poaching in the Grand Banks to stop and allow boarding? 'Cause the fishermen ARE ARMED!

    Canadian politeness?

    Interesting approach indeed... but I mean don't you guys face gangs with fastboats trying to carry drugs, **********s, immigrants and other illegal stuff in Canada?

    That's an tiny, highly overworked Navy. That's why there are poachers galore in Canadian waters.

    In Germany its pretty much the same - though there actually is not even a single coast guard... different ships belong to different government agencies etc.. so the ships of the mnistry for agriculture and fishing etc might not have any weapons on board too. only maybe those who belong to the federal police or customs might have some pistols.. though i'm not even sure about this

    Actualy the enforcment of law in Canadian waters is the responsability of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They get assistance from the Coast Guard, the Navy and The Fisheries department but it is their mandate.

    The first of three ships in the Barentshav class. A couple of unusual things with these ships are that the propulsion is powered by liquefied natural gas, and the 40mm gun will be lowered below deck when not in use.
