With the Success of the Bombardier CF-21 in the Pit Stop Category at the Fighter Rodeo. Bombardier Aerospace uses this success as a marketing advert, for the fighter having the fastest reload and refuel rate.

Meanwhile at CFB Cold Lake, all the Pilots from No 401 Squadron the only unit in the POP team, that made it into the finals but lost to the KDF squadron for the Trophy. Are going through a years worth of flight training in the Simulator in order to improve their skills for the Next Fighter Rodeo, hopfully they can get the trophy next time.

In Tech News. Avro Canada's RAM Paint will become standard kit in a future variant of the Bombardier CF-21, and Canadairs entry into the 5th Generation Fighter Market the CF-32 when they get their Prototype flying in late April.

Less simulator time, more stick time.
Quantity has a Quality all its own.

As with the faster reload time ever, the aircraft only holds about 50 rounds per gun, not much to reload. :D :? :D :(
Guess what? Smallest gas tanks for aircraft, but it is bigger than a riding lawn mower.!!
:D :D :D :oops: :| :oops: :| :D :wink: :D

Congratulations for your series of victories at the Fighter Rodeo!! Really good stuff. Great training you have conducted. Great results.

Chris,

He beat my harriers that carry less fuel and less rounds, so good job to mech.

Yes, at the rodeo, Mech did well. That’s why I congratulated him after my (attempt) humor.
Finalist and winner.

Though New Canadian and other POP Officers do have several written complaints about the displays of terrible behaviour at the Fighter Rodeo.

1. An NCBC and PON News crews was very disturbed, after seeing some pilots performing, for a lack of a better word "Risque" Dance at the News Tent which caused it to collapse.

2. The Feline and Da Vinican Attack crews reported seeing a sight of attack crews from other nations running naked which made them look away in utter embarrassment and disgust at that sight.

3. There was a rather disgusting incident involving the use of "Colon Medication" for some sort of practical joke, which is not tolerated in the POP nations militaries.

It appears all of these disturbing incidents where all related to the mass consumption of this "Avatar Ale." and would recommend that the ale, shall no longer be served in future Fighter Rodeos and other events.

With the retirement of the venerable CF-18s from RCAF Service. the No 410 Fighter Training Squadron is receiving North American Harvard's as their new training aircraft in order to give the pilots the allotted stick time needed to help improve their flying skills.

Meanwhile the RCN Fleet Air Arm has made a decision to have the 2nd Carrier Air Wing along with the RCN Attack helicopter squadron operate from the deck of the Tarawa class LHA HMCS Lake Superior, instead of the HMCS Maple Leaf which is at this point has been left unfinished and abandoned for years. Thus allowing for the 2nd Carrier Battle Group to be disbanded and the remaining ships will be placed in reserve status until they can be reassigned.

The NC Army just received their first batch of the new KF-51 Panther Tanks (Designated as the Panther C1), with one tank taken to CFB Wainwright to test out its 130mm gun and HERO loitering munitions at the gun range. Its expected these will serve in the 1st ABG this year. Also New Canada and the other POP nations are deciding on which Tank units to send to the Tankers Ball in June, this event the NC Army figured will be a great way to have their new Panther C1s compete aginest the tanks from other nations.

After several years of service the NC Army's M47 Dragon ATGM will finally be offically retired and replaced with the Javlien and NLAW systems. The reason for this decision is that the NC Army officers where impressed by the effectiveness of attacking tanks from the top. they hope that these systems will help the NC infantry be more effective aginest EE Tanks.

in other news Bombardier and Canadair is set to introduce their fully stealth capable prototypes later this month, using Avro's Patient Grey Ghost RAM Paint. Bombardiers CF-21S variant and the Canadair's CF-32 Pelican

A new POP Run Tourism business is currently in the works called Pax Global Tours as part of an effort to boost international prestige and to make income off the tourism business. The plan is to acquire a fleet of Airbus A380 Jet liners and modify them for first Class passenger services only. The planned routes for the A380s includes all four Pact Nations, Aleppo Syria when the Victory Palace is completed. And any friendly neighbour nations like the ROD and the RPNW.
