The LPD KNS Fearsome loading Sunday in the ROD after a great competition.

Pulling out of port early this morning for the cruise home she is joined by a Knox class and a 98m Flexpatrol now being built in Karmanaskis.

Edit* Changing out the photo of my new Flexpatrol frigate. I had them at 115m long but I was not happy with the overall shape. Rebuilding them all at the original 98m long and 15m beam, looks way better. Will re post when painted.

PG, it is 'keel-hauling', thank you. There is a rumor that you and PG conduct keel-hauling periodically. Or is it only with a citizen from a Dom?

The NCAF is asking the ROD and US bomber groups in Alaska taking part in operation Polar Guardian, to please not fly over NCs Air space in the Arctic during their exercise.

ROD aircraft are spending most of their time over water, with the exception of those bombers flying out of Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska.

The CoC is making an apology to NC for flying our B-52 over your territory without warning.
We will be flying in the far north, in the Arctic Circle, just so you know. We are testing a prototype system. Several prototypes being tested which are on different aircraft..

Thank you, just maintain a good distance away from our Economic Exclusion zones in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

Anything north of 74.3 is territory of CoC. It is an animal, wildlife preserve.

6 bells and the party is getting going, Brandy and cigar parlor in the marquee tent on the deck of the new KNS Nakiska, Bodgit & Konnem dockyard, Karmanaskis.

Distinguished guest retired Chief of Naval Operations – Admiral Dave Davidson (“Old Salty Dave”) ROD Navy, cracks another bottle of Hennessy at the table of the KDF C of D, General Tromperie.

"So General what do you make of the news coming out of Eski or Graham or whatever it's called this week, is it NC?"
"Its a holiday Dave could be anything, I've got nothing solid on it. Most likely a CCNN ratings boost by that chick on prime time."
"NC is at a very low readiness level right now so I don't see it but you never know. We are using a new asset the Air Force has tonight."
"It's cost me damn near 1/2 a billion dollars to get this bloody Wyvern project to fly, I'll let you know through the back channel".

"Another?"
"Cheers Dave why not, or should that be Wyvern not?" all LOL.

Would the ROD be interesting in participating in a officer exchange program? It might help to better relations with both our militaries and help improve our officer corps.

What exactly would NC want to accomplish with an officer exchange? The ROD has put an enormous amount of time and effort into helping NC develop their military, but we have yet to see any real reforms.

Our major reforms was to get rid of the whole purchased officers commissions and replaced it with the more proper Merit system but it will be a long time before we have any competent officers on hand.

The other is the acquiring of some modern equipment. Mostly guided missile ships to replace our ww2 era vessels plus the CF2Y Sea Dart has been a major asset to the RCN.

The ROD Ministry of Defense is pleased to announce that Grunt Week is a go! The year’s third international event is dedicated to the poor bloody infantry, and it is open to all members of the imagi-nations international community. The event will be held from Sunday September 12th through Saturday September 18th at Kurth Barracks, home of the ROD Army’s Infantry School.

Unlike the Fighter Rodeo and the Tanker’s Ball held earlier this year, Infantry Week is not just a competition. For this event, each nation is welcome to send up to 250 personnel to participate in infantry-based events that will promote camaraderie among infantrymen and foster an exchange of ideas and information. Participants will conduct road marches, shoot a plethora of weapons, run through bayonet and obstacle courses, and train in combatives and field craft. At the end of the week, ROD Infantry School instructors will also administer the tests to qualify for ROD Airborne Wings, and the coveted ROD Expert Warrior Badge.

What, no competition? WRONG! While the Grunt Week participants are honing their infantry skills, there will indeed be a competition. Each nation and service are invited to send a 10-man rifle squad to compete for the titles of Best Grunt and Best Squad. Each service may send a squad – so, for example, the ROD Army and the ROD Marine Corps will each send a squad to compete.

Each competing rifle squad will consist of 10 soldiers (with no rank restrictions). They will be equipped with tactical equipment appropriate for field operations and patrolling, 10 x helmets, 10 x bayonets, 9 x rifles, 10 x pistols, and 1 x belt-fed machine gun.

The ROD will provide each rifle squad a secure squad bay and arms room. We will also provide housing and meals for all participants, dignitaries, and media during the event. Heads up: you will be sleeping in open bay barracks used for basic training recruits. If your small arms require ammunition other than NATO 9mm, 5.56mm, 7.62mm, or .45 ACP please let us know in advance.

Please let the Ministry of Defense know if your imagi-nation would like to send participants and/or competitors to the 2021 Grunt Week. If sending competitors, please let us know your squad names. Hollywood names are encouraged.

ROD Marine Team: Executioner
