Who's kidding who, here? You ALL have special forces. You can't afford NOT to. That would be like not carrying your Swiss Army knife at all times... Ha, ha! Bet you don't do that, either!

Which model of swiss army knife do you use up north? Single blade, as the original?

The NCAF is now scrambling to get the PUMA IFVs as soon as possible.

Coastal artillery usually considered more defensive than anti-ship missiles. The 130mm artillery are used primarily for ground support, defensive fire support, counter-battery, interdiction. Much shorter range than ground launched missiles some with ranges of a 100 miles, some extending out 800 mile range.

P-3 patrol aircraft From Whidbey airbase took pictures earlier around Vancouver Island There have been rumors of this vessel for months and months. Has capability for surface and sub-surface interdiction, special forces deployment, access denial, etc.



This along with several coastal artillery units, this will have influence into Washington state waters north to Eski, Graham Island down to Oregon, East to NES Canada, out west into the Pacific.

Graham Island Government
The government of Graham Island including Moresby Island has purchased two U-212 A submarines to go along with the two U-212 that Graham Navy has operated. These are diesel-electric subs, smaller in size, thus more difficult to detect and hide in and around Graham and Moresby Islands. The spokesman for the Graham Navy spoke that the Karmaskis Navy has been known to be ready to deploy the Porpoise which is smaller, has a smaller cross-section to be detected. That and the ability to hide in the shallows makes the smaller submarines very capable in the home islands. The Porpoise is highly effective in shallow waters and close to shore. It can enforce a blockade. Thus we had to respond to be able to counter the Porpoise and to engage New Canadian Navy if necessary to defend Graham.
Another reason is that Canada has shown the world to be aggressive going to armed conflict around the world since they reunited in New Canada. They have acquired more aircraft, even after losing some a year or two ago. Graham is concerned when Canada might decide to expand or try to blockade the us.
Graham knows that the porpoise is highly capable which we had to counter with the U-212 A submarines. Also need to be able to prosecute our defense, to prepare in the event big New Canada gets crazy, well really crazy or insane.

We have no such plans on blockading the US nor your islands. though this "Porpoise" you speak of can pose a threat to the RCN as well fortunately we do have ASW capable aircraft and ships to which we can detect this sub.

Oh, once again New Canada thinks they can do it all. Sure you can detect the Porpoise, but not all the time, nor small diesel-electric submarines. They are just as likely to close the west coast of Canada, all the shipping and trade.
What are the ASW assets that New Canada has available? Any ASW aircraft would be detected by radar at Whidbey AF Base, Karmaskis, Graham, Eski Nation. Same with ships, helicopters. Canadian submarines would be detected by the smaller submarines prior to the Canadian subs detecting the smaller subs hiding in the shallows. The Canadian subs and navy ships might only know of a small sub from the active ping of a torpedo in the terminal phase just prior to impact.

Recon pictures.





What submarine base is this? A base of the Evil Empire, that received an inquiry from a phone line in Canada at a naval base regarding a purchase of a Typhoon.

The RCN never made any inquires regarding a typhoon sub nor do we have any interest. who ever made that call must have been made by some illegal arms dealer, we will investigate this matter further.

Chris the ASW assets that New Canada has consists mostly of the CP-140 Aurora aircraft, the Carrier borne CS-2 Tracker and Grumman Avengers, and lastly the Short Sunderland flying boat, for ships we got the Tribal Class Destroyers, and the Halifax Class Frigate

those ASW aircraft may be able to track a sub that has nuts and bolts banging around in the hull of the submarine. They will not be able to find a small sub in the shallows. Hope you are using more than operational research to find submarines.

Chris asked 'What submarine base is this? '
That's not Karmanaskis.



All five Orca submarines of the KDF now in use.
The problems with small subs is not so much locating them but the much larger area you are forced to cover looking in the first place.

A quote from some smart boat type.
"A smaller submarines is more covert than larger ones. The smaller submarine has less target echo-strength and emits less noise (if the same silencing techniques are used in it – this point may be open to debate).

A smaller submarine can also go places a larger submarine can’t access (especially important in the Baltic and around Sweden’s archipelago). Enemy ASW can exclude shallow waters from their equation if your subs can’t operate in them, and on the contrary, must include them in their equation if you can. Small submarines therefore draw on the enemy’s ASW strength."

That Porpoise photo is probably just a whale or something.

Hah hah.
That other submarine was was a sub, in the category of ‘porpoise. How could poor K-country afford the 5 Orcas and any other sub?
.
A lot of security coming into Pudget Sound Naval Base. Between a Tico cruiser and Burke DDG with escort and trailing security ships. Smoke being released to obscure something between the two warships. Do not see a ship, nor a sub with sail.
. Speculation is it is the Porpoise submarine. Why else would it have been seen in US waters couple days ago.
. Did Karmaskis get to trail the porpoise?
.
Those Orkas look like targets.... but watch out, it might be NC. Certainly if Karmaskis wanted to blockade NC. Especially if Eski, Graham participated. There is is a 150-170 mile gap from southern end of a Graham and northern end of Vancouver Island. Graham has one Sturgeon Class sub.
