    Question for Artillery guys

    As with anything with the army the needs of the org will come first, that being said where you get posted will have the most impact on your employment. If you get posted to 1/2 RCHA, 5 RALC or the RCAS expect to start on the Gunline maybe the STA batteries if there's an opportunity. OPs will be...

    Umbrella still needs a strong base or the first gust sends it flying. Even if we're still talking in metaphors and not lawn furniture suggestions.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Which is why we now actually have uniform dress instructions instead of one for men, one for women, one for First Nations, one for practicing Muslims, one for practicing Norse Pagens, one for practicing Sikhs, etc etc. Trying to correct someone before was like going through a hundred layer flow...

    Soldier Operational Clothing and Equipment Modernization

    For the last few years at least in RegF for combat arms you sign for one from your unit and don't turn it in till you leave said unit or not at all and take it to your next unit.

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    IMO neither truck is very well set up as a 155 gun tractor the MSVSM at least lets you have most of the detachment and 32 rounds 155 with prop but the SMP requires a whole other troop carry vehicle at all times.

    D.I.E. cis-het white men bun fight [Split from:SWO badge]

    D.I.E. cis-het white men bun fight [Split from:SWO badge]

    Not saying you're evil, the facts say we're losing people. We need to find ways to keep what we have left, if that means a union let's do it. But right now the troops are leaving in droves. This whole site will spends months debating the ideal amount of c6s in a platoon but none of that matters...

    You're right a union might get in the way of the fast and effecient process the CAF has to remove them, and instead they'll probably just I don't know ride out a career in the canteen which would be unimaginable in the CAF
