from what I hear.........and I stress.........this is only a rumor.................the pearly palace in Ottawa is considering another jump unit. It costs way too much to have individual jump coys with the infantry battalions. They did that before the Airborne regiment was formed and figured out it was too expensive then............kinda makes you wonder who the genius was who thought it would be different this time around [Blotto]

That is exactly the move that the army needs to make. It should reform an airmobile battle group complete with all arms support.
