    Canada Polar Class 2 Ice Breaker,Coast Guard

    Here is a feature from Vanguard magazine on the new CCG Polar Class 2s characteristics being built by SeaSpan Marine in Vancouver to date!. Her "Design" weight of 26,036 tons may not be her "full-load" weight. I suspect it may come in heavier at between 28-30,000 tons. In any case, one of the...

    Thanks Underway for that very informative and fast reply. I actually knew a lot of what you have commented on but was unfamiliar of some of your SPY 7 (V3) comments. Cheers and have a "Great Navy Day"!!

    Canada Navy Canada Surface Combatant (CSC) Program

    Hello Underway. I get that the X Band Illumination Radar (by MDA) is now not required for the SPY 7 (V3) radar but, any radar can be jammed to some degree. Is this something Canada should be concerned about with the NA-30S Mk-2 Fire Control System (FCS) for the 127mm? The LM SPY 7 (V3) Radar...

    Here is another LM/BAE graphic of the CSC Frigate just released. This one features a "filled-in" mast with what appear to be EW AEs and perhaps a FC Radar for the 5" Leonardo gun FWD. The NSMs also seem to be "Trainable" as with the BAE proposed missile fit for the Hunter class Batch II fit. It...

    Nice pictures Ted. Where did these "Archived" pictures come from? First time I've seen these. Are these official government photos or are these just AI for your own affect? Are you saying MDA is no longer involved with the Illumination Radar system.... then who is?

    Hello, ucuyorum. MDA has been in the Space business for many years now including building satellites and the CANADARM used on most of the Apollo systems and the ISS, RADARSAT programs and satellites. No, they have not built Naval Radars yet but with their expertise, they should be able to...

    I take it from your "Humm" emoji reply Ted that you do not want to to discuss anything WRT the CSC design as related to the MDA Illumination radar and the critical radar it must use to keep our sailors safe from harm? 🐎 :poop:

    Canada Navy Canada Surface Combatant (CSC) Program

    Naval Specialist Ted Barnes seems to feel that there is something "funny" about Canada's CSC Type 26 Frigates abilities to defend itself with a civilian Canadian company's (MDA) requirement to produce a critical Illumination Radar for the CSC as they were contracted to do. If you have something...

    Is there anyone out there that has any new information on the MDA Illumination AESA Radar to be fitted on the CSC Type 26 Frigate as of the 13 February? I am only speculating of course but here is what I have. If any forum members can help me out here, that would be great!: "1 x Solid State...

    Defence Q&A Radar action

    Interesting questions AngelWer. With the more modern AESA S Band 3D Long Range Discrimination Radars in service today, I would say "possibly" but probably would only be able to discriminate the large missile (Hypersonic) once in flight. The modification of a fighter however might only be able to...

    So, if I read you correctly Ted, Phase 3 of the Lockheed Martin PDR has essentially been completed with CACI and the CSC Frigate program for Technical Engineering Support? The only things left to do for Phase 4 Implementation to begin is for the Canadian Government to 1. Select Teams; 2. Select...

    Hi Nilgiri!! Yes doing well. Just haven't had much to say lately on the CSC Frigate "on-going" saga of government silence with the program. Hopefully the up-dated SSE and PDR will be released sometime this Decade!! Cheers!;)

    Hello Ted. As a so called "military expert and Ottawa Citizen reporter, Pugliese's reputation as a "qualified and unbiased reporter" has always been suspect to most informed personnel and his objectiveness is just as bad. I would not put my faith in almost anything that comes out of his mouth or...
