RED DASHED LINE = North Warning System - ( SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR LIST OF COORDINATES AND MAP)

Formerly the DEW line (Distant Early Warning Line) consists of short and long range radars 11 long range, 36 short range. These are sensors that can detect incoming bomber aircraft or missiles from the Arctic, they are used by Canadian NORAD in CFB North Bay. Each one would need to be neutralized by Russia to eliminate NORAD’s capability of detecting missiles and aircraft. These sites are small so a smaller yield warhead would be enough, or they could opt for using cruise missiles to take them out before their first strike. If nuclear warheads are used rather than cruise missiles, the fallout radiation should be fairly localized however because there are so many of these sites there would be a decent amount of fallout over Canada’s far Northern frontier.


A) CFB North Bay - North Bay, Ontario

46.357846°N 79.416477°W


MAJOR TARGET - Home of Canadian NORAD, all air and missile defense sensors feed into North Bay which acts as a first alert to any attack on the U.S. coming from the Arctic/Northern direction. North Bay would be the first to detect anything and then transmit information to the U.S. NORAD in Colorado Springs. If Russia takes out this base then Canada and the U.S. would be somewhat blind to any missiles or nuclear bombers coming from the Arctic direction. There is also a MASSIVE UNDERGROUND BUNKER COMPLEX at North Bay comparable to Cheyenne Mountain that is currently kept on "warm" status, but not activiely used it is one of the largest bunkers in North America built 60 stories underground.


B) CFB Cold Lake - Cold Lake, Alberta

54°24′18″N 110°16′46″W


MAJOR TARGET - Home of one of Canada’s F-18 Wings, the 4th wing. They have a lot of F-18’s here that are used to patrol Canada’s Western Air Defense Sector. These F-18’s would be scrambled in the event of any Russian bombers coming over the Arctic or from the Pacific. In the case of an intrusion into Canadian Airspace from the Northern Direction they would rendezvous with F-18’s scrambled from Bagotville.


C) CFB Bagotville - Saguenay, Quebec

48°19′50″N 070°59′47″W


MAJOR TARGET - The eastern counterpart of Cold Lake, home of Canada’s other F-18 wing responsible for intercepting intrusions into Canadian airspace coming from the Eastern or Northern Direction.


D) CFB Greenwood - Greenwood, Nova Scotia

44°59′04″N 064°55′01″W


MAJOR TARGET - One of two bases in the country using the CP-140 Aurora and CP-140A Arcturus anti-submarine/maritime patrol and surveillance aircraft. They patrol the East coast of Canada with these planes to detect any Russian nuclear missile subs.


E) CFB Comox - Comox, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

49°42′39″N 124°53′12″W


MAJOR TARGET - West Coast counterpart to CFB Greenwood


FORWARD OPERATING LOCATIONS -

These are small bases in Canada’s Northern frontier that can be used by Canadian fighter pilots flying F-18’s patrolling the Northern reaches of Canada and the Arctic. These FOL’s are critical for Canadian fighter jets patrolling the Northern frontier because of vast distances involved in dispatching F-18’s from Bagotville or Cold Lake to the far Northern reaches of Canada and into the Arctic they would run out of fuel before making it back to their home bases, so they need a place to land. These FOL’s can be used for multiple other purposes as well and so they are a target.


Created under the North American Air Defense Modernization (NAADM) program authorized at the Shamrock Summit held in Quebec City on March 18, 1985. The locations are maintained by the Canadian Department of National Defense. The NAADM program was authorized by the Canada-United States Memorandum of Understanding signed by Prime Minister Mulroney and Ronald Reagan at the summit.


F) FOL Yellowknife

62.45131°N 114.4501°W


G) FOL Rankin Inlet

62.80563°N 92.1098°W


H) FOL Iqaluit

63.75107°N 68.5534°W


I) FOL Inuvik

68.30740°N 133.47022°W


J) FOL Kuujjuaq (Fort Chimo) - Kuujjuaq, Quebec

58°06′N 68°24′W


K) CFB Goose Bay - Goose Bay, Labrador

53°19′09″N 060°25′33″W


Goose Bay is also considered an FOL that can be used by Canadian F-18’s, but also hosts a radar system pointed eastward. Also hosts multi-national squadrons from UK, France, Germany, Netherlands.


L) CFB Winnipeg - Winnipeg, Manitoba

49°54′36″N 097°14′24″W


Canadian NORAD HQ and flight training schools. This is the administrative HQ of Canadian NORAD and functions as an administrative base for the Canadian Air Force. CFB North Bay is the operations HQ of Canadian NORAD where actual data is analyzed and communicated to the U.S. from sensors.


M) CFB Trenton - Quinte West, Ontario

44°07′08″N 077°31′41″W


Heavy Airlift squadrons - C-17’s and C-130’s, and C-150’s
