Drones and the RCN

Major (retired) F. Roy Thomas, MSC, CD, MA (RMC). 13 February 2020.

Without anti-drone assets should the RCN become a coastal navy operating under the umbrella of cheaper shore-based anti-drone assets? Or should Canada’s navy procurement include provision of at least one anti-drone warship for each coast, including the Arctic? After all, it seems that the anti-submarine warfare threat, and the unmanned underwater vessel (UUV) threat, may be best countered by RCN submarines and UUVs (if we ever acquire any). As a long retired Armoured officer, I would like to hear some naval voices on this question in Canadian Naval Review.
