That's a great looking sub! My ROD sailors are quite jealous!

The Karmanaskis Navy is welcome to make port-o-call. Welcome to use base on the Pacific or in the Caribbean area.
Please do not take the sub out of the water for the next 5-6 years, you might find out tracking device that was placed on the hull by divers in the locks. It was a bit loud for the divers.

Chris,
Hence the quick docking 'after' clearing the final lock. Part of the limited crew rotation included members of the KDF NDU team for a sweep of the hull too.
We thank the CofC for the kind offer of your facilities in the area but we do not want to be a burden in such a busy place.
It is not that we do not trust you Chris, it's just S.O.P. Laughing

You will have plenty of chances to try and track us in the future.
Just keep checking behind your carriers.
Bon Voyage.

redleg,
Thanks, I don't really like ships but I am becoming fond of my little sub flotilla.
I see it as a very cost effective way to defend my island.
I almost went for a micro ship this year but just can not handle the size! Hats off to all of you that do.
I'll stick with the 1/350 scale, easy to work with and keeps the fleet small as is the Country.
so no big carrier groups for me (just yet).

Mick,
That explains the two tracking devices. We had one on a semi-tractor trail (we think) then on a train heading east by northeast. The other device ended up flying to Mexico City on a 737. Our intel team said that submarine could not do either, much less both. But we have some questions to determine the feasibility of the submarine traveling on a highway and railroad while flying at the same time.

Officials from Health Canada are traveling to the company responsible for the production of Medical Cannabis in hopes of striking a deal that will allow Health Canada's own Cannabis distribution centre in Ontario to bring it in.

Shelia with WFOXY News reporting that, Health Canada already has Cannabis distribution center, yet Cannabis has been illegal in Canada. The Government is being again, very deceitful. Criminal behavior. Once again another embarrassing moment for the New Canadian government. The Health Minister has to go, perhaps the previous finance minister was also involved. May need to clean our for in the Finance Ministry and Health, too.

WFOXY News,
This is Shelia reporting. Canada has said that cannabis is now allowed in Canada that the ban has been lifted. Yet, no one is able to get any legally, only from medical clinic or a back of a SUV or side of a van.
Canada is setting up their own department to provide medical treatment. This is the only time in the history in North America that the government is sole source provider of cannabis for medicinal supply. How wrong even it is even in ** CENSORED ** new Canada. The government is not providing anything yet, cost is unknown. Help the citizens, the government serves the people. The Monarchy is dead or should be.

Moved from the Mech training post.

The KDF respects the NCAF and its way of training (keep updating us Mech).
Karma-Naskis is very different, the KDF is a very small peacetime force that relies on conscription for a war time only mobilization.
Our BMT (Basic Military Training) is standard across all forces, regardless of rank. Everyone gets BMT.
8 weeks produces a basic Soldier, be it Army, Navy, Air Force or Border Guard.
After that extra training is given for the required role, anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 years.
It can be infantry soldier or nurse, officer or matlot, pilot or plumber.
But if there are no more tanks, ships or aircraft, they are all Soldiers.

With regard to the continued SF questions from NC. The KDF prides itself on producing after 8 weeks a very good, no BS basic soldier.
Their boots may not be like glass, the drill is not perfect and facial hair is common
However all meet a set physical standard, can use a personal weapon, have thrown a grenade (some LAW or RPG too) and work as a member of a section in defence and attack.
After BMT they are all very confident, motivated and competent.
They understand what their Country is asking them to do and most importantly why!
The aim of BMT is to produce a KDF Soldier that will fight for Karma-Naskis.
They will never ever give in, they will go down fighting, kicking, biting and screaming. They will never ever give in.

Any member of the KDF who has completed their conscription can apply to join the SOG. Very few are selected for training.
The KDF can make anyone fit with good food and exercise. They could also teach anyone to do just about anything given enough time and training. That is not what the SOG is looking for (still most volunteers are very fit and smart).
There is one thing that is very hard to instill in someone, so it better just to find the ones who have it.

The soldier the KDF SOG is looking for is one who who has failed 100 times.
But will try 101.

The first few days of the selection is just physical and the numbers drop quickly. As time goes on the work load keeps getting harder with less sleep. The simple group marches/runs with kit give way to individual efforts now always with a task to be completed.
Some tasks are a deal breakers, if they fail it is over. Others are never meant to be possible or done in the given time. The candidate will not know.
It will not matter how fit or smart they are, they will start to fail. Also the goalposts tend to move.
Arriving at a map check point after 10km walkies at the end of a long hard day "OK #57 I want you to take this jerry can of water to this grid ref on the other side of that hill, then you are on the truck and done for the day.
"Off they go with the extra weight plus their own kit and rifle, up 2,000" then down 2,000 on the other side.
The truck is there with two staff members. "Good job #57 that was 4 hours 17 minutes" the water is emptied on the ground "Now take the empty can back to the staff who gave it to you. You have 3 hours 30 minutes."
That is how it goes on day after day, relentless and harder. They can quit anytime and many do but by the fifth week a few are left.
The ones with the will to push on.

That will to carry on is what the SOG is after.

Once they have the few remaining candidates with that, the selection will be over and the real training can begin.
From approx 150-200 starters normally around 15-20 will be left to continue on to the next segment.
More may drop out during the training but help and guidance is now given. The standards are set very high and do not change. Some years are good, others not so good.

There was a selection once when no one passed.

Jezz it's very counter productive, as you selected just rejects. But still the NCAF council has already made their decision to not pursue the creation of a Special Forces unit for the NCAF.

Well that is the decision the council went, as the evidence provided by the KDF was unsatisfactory to warrent such a Special Forces team. The outcome would have been different if a member if the ROD spec ops unit gave their voice at the meeting.

Karnanaskis spec ops troops are the best of the best. Their guys never give up - hence the "fail 100 times and try a 101th time" statement. That means they are fierce competitors and they exhibit determination and fortitude, not that they are failures.

The ROD as been providing assistance and advice for quite some time now. New Canada needs to do some of the work for themselves too - do some research. Do some reading. The information is out there but you have to work a little bit and then apply what you learn.

I am sure that the Commonwealth does not have any special ops soldiers....
A billion people throughout the Commonwealth, who needs spl ops. The force multiplier.
Why sacrifice a team of 12 highly trained men when with egos a mile wide when one can use a battalion to start and successful finish the job. Cover more ground with more bullets and grenades.

We do have snipers, or we used to. The got shot by enemy snipers. That was a real bummer. We do have a special unit with 12 guys in it, Identified as Rambo 1, Rambo 2,... Rambo 12. Tough unit, kick butt.

Lets get back to Syria.
