    The Monarchy and CF

    The folks that talk about the monarch being foreign won't care that there is a Canadian ceremonial rank.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    A couple of reserve squadrons still use the P-3C. There would still need to be some massive design changes (like gutting the inside of a kitchen reno) since the CP-140 seating arrangements and systems locations are different than the regular P-3.

    Surface Warfare Officer badge

    We don't anymore. It got repealed within a few months. The Australians (RAAF) and Kiwis (RNZAF) don't differentiate - it's just the RAF that does that. To be clear, personally I don't see a reason to change (agreeing with @SupersonicMax here) but I just want to point out that not all AFs...

    Surface Warfare Officer badge

    To further confuse things, like how you're not supposed to say the "Navy" part of Lt(N) - e.g. "Lieutenant Bloggins", not "Lieutenant Navy Bloggins", you're not supposed to say the "Acting" part either. So, "Sub-Lieutenant blahblahblah", not "Acting Sub-Lieutenant blahblahblah". So...

    Uh, they don't have TVs mounted to bulkheads in the CPFs? MCDVs have those in the Wardroom, C/POs, and Main Cave. The idea of the Flex on TV is pretty cool though. Put up a nice screensaver of PAO shots from the deployment too.

    New Chief Of Navy For The RAN and News On Hunter-class

    To be fair, those statements are from the Defence Minister, not the incoming Chief of Navy.

    New Chief Of Navy For The RAN and News On Hunter-class

    Interestingly enough, the ANZAC-class isn't much newer than the CPFs, and for reasons unknown they are "fitted for but not with" a CIWS.

    New Chief Of Navy For The RAN and News On Hunter-class

    Article talks about possible capability gaps in both RAN surface and sub-surface fleets due to program delays. Hmm...where have I heard this before...:unsure: https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/2022/07/new-chief-of-navy-for-the-ran-and-news-on-hunter-class/

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    There needs to be people to interpret the data (until AI/ML is good enough which is a long way away), but do they need to be onboard? Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems have all of their crews elsewhere and interpret/act on data. I'm not sure if it would need more people. For example, would...

    It's still counted as "24 hour days at sea", right? So if a ship sails for a week, Monday and Friday (assuming those are the dates of departure and arrival) don't count?
