FIFY...The podcast is a good snapshot of what the Canadian Army is focusing on for Latvia. Overall I think it’s an okay plan, not great but maybe the best we can do given current constraints.
I am uneasy though because overall I think the Canadian Army is going to become or continue to be very myopic out to the mid 2300's. I think we will see three largely separate armies emerge similar to the Afghanistan era. We will have a fairly well equipped and modern army in Latvia, a second force in the Canadian based regular army with the largely documented deficiencies in equipment and finally our current reserve army with minimal to no additional changes to equipment or structures.
It will work for the single mission in the immediate term but it won’t fix any of our actual systemic underlying weaknesses.
