The 7-year-old Healy is the USA nation's newest icebreaker. It's 420 feet long and is capable of breaking ice 8 feet thick.
Wonder if this is what Canada has in Mind or Something Less ?

I think if we're going to buy one this is the way to go, much more modern, cheaper and reliable, not like that "made in the USA" crap.

I agree. America makes bad stuff. Russia makes better stuff. Soon, Iran makes better stuff than Russia. Then Canada buys our stuff. We have many mosques in Canada. Why not visit. We also have advanced technology that you would like to buy to make your life better. Canada is beautiful country, but it's politics are bad. We have many who support us in Canada.

Iran and China might make better stuff than the Russians one day.

Because all you have to do is take their design and improve it. Iran, and especially China are nothing more than copyright/patent pirates.

Especially China. Without Russia, China's claim to an armed force would still be gunpowder. And people think Chinese are smart.

The "NOOR" missile that Hezbollah used against the Israeli warship in the war with Lebanon was a knockoff of the C802 Chinese antiship missile, which of course was derived from..

The Russian AS-15 Kent ALSM/ SS-N-21 Sampson / Kh-55.
