clip Army.ca Server Availability

January 11, 2018, 10:12:12 by Mike Bobbitt
Folks, for the first time in a long time, good news.

According to our monitoring tools, Army.ca had 100% uptime in December. That means that for the entire month of December, the server was never unavailable.* For the keeners in the group, our monitoring report from 30 Nov to now is attached.

Thanks to everyone for your patience through our past frustrations... I can't guarantee it is all behind us, but I will take the good news while I can!


Cheers
Mike

* Some caveats, early every Sunday morning the server reboots to keep it fresh as a daisy. This usually takes less than 1 minute.

xx Trials begin for the world’s smallest operational military aircraft

January 10, 2018, 14:09:31 by Old Sweat
This report by ADM(Mat) staff is reproduced under the Fair Dealings provisions of the Copyright Act. It highlights trials of a fascinating development in UAV technology.

Trials begin for the world’s smallest operational military aircraft

The Canadian Army and the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command are conducting the first-ever operational trials and evaluations on the latest version of the smallest operational military aircraft in the world – the Black Hornet 3, made by FLIR.

Weighing just a few dozen grams, it consists of two aircraft, a hand controller and a chest-mounted tablet, all fitting into a small shoebox-sized package. The aircraft has a range of over a kilometer with video and night-vision capabilities.

This equipment opens up a whole range of possibilities and both commands will seek innovative ways to evolve tactics, techniques and procedures to use this new capability, assess its usefulness and identify requirements.

Armyca-Ico Is there any place I can find photos and videos?

December 05, 2017, 21:24:43 by ARcan
So my friends were showing me some pictures and videos they took during training or just random stuff at the base.

First question:
Is it okay to take pictures and videos during any military operation? Cause it seems like everyone is doing it.

Second question:
Where can I find some pictures and videos of Canadian Forces? Mainly user uploaded, nothing official. I am mostly interested in the Armoured Reconnaissance unit.

xx Hunting

August 28, 2017, 07:38:33 by Somethinginteresting
Hello,
For armored nvm/officers and infantry ncm/officers, is hunting encouraged if living on base?  Do you still need to get deer tags or is it open season haha   ^-^
I know this may be a silly question but I am just trying to see what the attitude is like about this on bases.

xx 2 RCR/Gagetown life

March 31, 2017, 01:15:17 by Nate7475
I just accepted a CT to 2 RCR from Pres and have never worked with 2RCR/been to gagetown. I have been on a few Reg force exercises with 1 RCR and have a basic understanding of the life/culture there such as stay away from Dukes coy like the plague. What can I look forward to and what can I dread about my new life in 2 RCR? How does living in Gagetown compare to other bases?

Thanks
