    Re: HMCS Algonquin and HMCS Protecteur collides at sea, no one hurt

    The rumor is that The Netherlands will buy F-35's, not 85, the original number or even 56, as is now the official plan, but that the submarine service will have to be sacrificed. A pity, I was once a guest of that service, without however seeing a submarine.

    Canadian Naval & Maritime News, Pictures and Videos

    I thought, with Canada building several new class vessels and with their other naval and maritime involvement along their long coast, that a thread similar in nature to other nation's threads we have in the Wolrd Armed Forces forum would be appropriate.

    So here is the first article regarding news for the Canadian Maritime and Naval Forces:

    5th Hero Class Patrol Boat delviered to Canadian Coast Guard

    These vessels are similar in size and finction to the new 154-ft US Coast Giard Sentinnel Class cutters (Fast Response Cutters) that are now being built to replace the 128-ft Island Class cutters. Both the Senetinnel and Hero classes are based on similar Netherlands Damen Stan patrol cutter designs that Canada and the US adopted.

    Canada extends its Arabian Sea Maritime Security Mission


    [​IMG]

    Glad to see this. The Canadians have been prociding a frigate to the maritime security mission there and the Halifax FFGs are decent combatants. They have 16 ESSMs, 8 Harpoons, a 57 mm main gun, carry 24 anti-submarine torpedoes with six ready on two three tube mounts, and have an embarked Sea King helicopter.

    Re: ThyssenKrupp's Berlin Class AOR Design Selected As Canada's Next Supply Ship

    Update: The two supply ships are to be named HMCS Queenston and HMCS Chateauguay:
    Sun News : Yet-to-be-built Royal Canadian Navy ships already named
    https://twitter.com/RCN_MRC/status/393771688728354816

    Both names are new names for the RCN, and are meant to signify important battles in the War of 1812. HMCS Queenston is named after the Battle of Queenston Heights, where roughly 1,300 British regulars, militia and natives lead by General Isaac Brock defeated an American invasion attempt of roughly 3,550 soldiers and militia. General Brock was killed during this battle.

    HMCS Chateauguay was named after the Battle of the Chateauguay, where less than 500 British regular's, militia and natives defeated an American invasion of 1,500 soldiers and militia.

    Re: Canadian Forces News , Photos and Information

    6th Hero Class Patrol Cutter delivered to Canadian Coast Guard


    [​IMG]

    The Hero Class cutters are based on the Dutch Kaman 4207 design. These are similar, but a little smaller than the US Coast Guard Senitnel Class of cutters which are based on the Dutch Kaman 4708 design, and which are also being constructed at this time. Canada just finished her 6th, the US Coast Guard has now launched 7. Canada plans for nine of these vessels, the US plans 58 of its vessels. I thought a comparison of these two modern medium sized cutters would be in order:
