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:

New Hero Class Vessel Joins Canadian Coast Guard’s Fleet

The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, yesterday announced the acceptance of the fifth of the Canadian Coast Guard’s new Hero Class vessels, the CCGS G. Peddle S.C.

The CCGS G. Peddle S.C. is a Mid-Shore Patrol Vessel that will be based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It was constructed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, by Irving Shipbuilding Inc. A formal naming and dedication ceremony will follow.

“We are honoured to accept the CCGS G. Peddle S.C. into the Canadian Coast Guard fleet,” said Minister Shea. “This vessel, named after Canadian Coast Guard Chief Officer Gregory Paul Peddle S.C., will be used for fisheries enforcement duties in the Atlantic Region.”

The Hero Class vessels are 43 metres in length with a displacement of 257 tonnes and a top speed of 25 knots.

The Hero Class vessels are named for decorated soldiers, veterans and police officers as well as employees of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard. By naming these after Canadian heroes, the Government of Canada hopes to encourage future generations to learn about Canadian history, culture and geography.
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.

The National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) Secretariat today announced that Vancouver Shipyards will commence construction on the Joint Support Ships, followed by the Polar Icebreaker, under the NSPS non-combat package. It is expected that construction will begin in late 2016.

The decision was based on a comprehensive analysis that included the readiness of each ship’s design, schedule optimization, project costs, and risks related to the timing of ship delivery. The analysis considered operational impacts such as gaps in program capability, and possible ship life extension or refit costs for existing vessels.

The NSPS Secretariat also sought input from Vancouver Shipyards, as well as First Marine International and KPMG as expert third parties, to ensure the best advice was considered in the analysis.

The decision ensures that Canadian shipbuilding capacity is sustainable and does not create the boom and bust cycles that characterized previous shipbuilding projects. Through the NSPS, the Government of Canada has committed to building these ships in Canada, and in doing so, it is re-establishing an industry that is going to bring jobs and prosperity to many communities across the country.

The Government of Canada announced today that it will continue its commitment to maritime security and counter-terrorism in the Arabian Sea region by extending Canada’s contribution to Combined Task Force 150 (CTF-150) until April 2015.

The continued presence of military assets in the Arabian Sea region gives Canada and 28 other contributing nations the flexibility and capability to respond quickly to emerging crises in the region.

Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship Toronto and her crew of approximately 250 Canadian Armed Forces personnel, based in Halifax, N.S., are presently patrolling the Arabian Sea region as part of Operation Artemis, Canada’s present contribution to CTF-150.

HMCS Toronto will be relieved in theatre by HMCS Regina, based in Esquimalt, B.C., early in 2014.

“Operation Artemis demonstrates Canada’s commitment to protecting Canadians as part of the global fight against terrorism and to working with our partners and allies for peace and security in the maritime environment of the Middle East,” said the Hon. Rob Nicholson, Minister of National Defence. “Our dedicated sailors, airmen and airwomen are successfully detecting, deterring and disrupting terrorist activities and networks at sea, which hampers terrorist operations ashore. They will continue to promote security, stability and prosperity with our allies.”

“During the four rotations that have been part of Operation Artemis, our crews have done outstanding work, including flag-verification boardings and interdiction operations, which greatly support security in this important region,” said Lieutenant-General Stuart Beare, Commander, Canadian Joint Operations Command. “Canadians can be proud of our role in sustaining good order at sea, and allowing for the safe flow of people and commerce across these waters.”

Since the start of Operation Artemis in May of 2012, Canada has consistently deployed frigates, along with helicopter air detachments, to the Arabian Sea region.
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:

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.

The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, yesterday announced the acceptance of the sixth of the Canadian Coast Guard’s new Hero Class vessels, the CCGS Corporal McLaren M.M.V.

“Our Government is proud to accept the CCGS Corporal McLaren M.M.V. into the Canadian Coast Guard fleet,” said Minister Shea. “This vessel will help sustain Canada’s fisheries by enforcing fisheries regulations and providing a Canadian presence in the Atlantic region.”

The vessel is named after Corporal Mark Robert McLaren M.M.V. of Peterborough, Ontario. On December 5, 2008, Corporal McLaren was killed in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, during an ambush of his Canadian-Afghan patrol. During the ambush, Corporal McLaren managed to crawl through enemy fire to aid his team’s seriously injured interpreter. He was awarded the Medal of Military Valour for his heroic actions.

The CCGS Corporal McLaren M.M.V. is a Mid-Shore Patrol Vessel that will be based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It was built in Halifax, Nova Scotia, by Irving Shipbuilding Inc. A formal naming and dedication ceremony will follow.

The Hero Class vessels are 43 metres in length with a displacement of 257 tonnes and a top speed of 25 knots.

The Hero Class vessels are named for decorated soldiers, veterans and police officers as well as employees of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard. By naming these after Canadian heroes, the Government of Canada hopes to encourage future generations to learn about Canadian history, culture and geography.
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:

Canadian Hero Class Coast Guard Cutters




Dsiplacement: 257 tons
Length: 140 ft.
Beam: 23.3 ft.
Draft:
Speed: 25 knots
Compliment: 14
Armament: None (Considering 25mm deck gun)
Built to Date: 6
Planned: 9

US Coast Guard Sentinel Class Cutters




Dsiplacement: 353 tons
Length: 154 ft.
Beam: 26.6 ft.
Draft:
Speed: 29 knots
Compliment: 22
Armament:
1 x Mk-38 Mod 2 25mm auto cannon
4 x Browning .50 caliber MGs
Built to Date: 7
Planned: 58
