Canada Cannot Into Marine Deck

Postby DeckCheney » Wed 26 Aug 2015 21:38

I'm aware that not many people play marines decks; but I've just realised that Canada has ZERO marine units. Can this oversight be fixed so that NORAD Marines isn't a -5pts deck for no reason?

While we're on the topic; make the CF-188 a Marine ASF?

The reason behind that is likely due to the fact Canada doesn't have anything close to a Marine organization (or even regular army troops trained in amphibious assualts) Likewise, I would guess that their hornets don't have all the equipment on them to land on aircraft carriers, as they don't have any, why have them? (Or all hornets may be able to land on carriers regardless, I dont know much about hornets)

You can't give Canadians marine Decks if they never had any Marines.

Su-24s and -27PUs can't land on carriers either and they're in the Soviet marine deck.

Canadian F-18s do have the proper cable catchers IIRC.

Actually, I think the mortar on the LAV chassis is in Marine decks for Canada.

Land-based aircraft being unavailable to marine decks is stupid given that "army" decks have unrestricted access to naval aircraft.

Canada can't really justify a standalone marine deck given their lack of a dedicated marine corps but there isn't any particulalrly good reason for Norad marines not to have access to more stuff, access to the Canadian F18's would solve a lot of problems for the US marine deck without being inauthentic as an earlier poster pointed out they still retain their carrier gear which is actually used to land on some of the smaller airfields in Alaska i believe.

Because some Su-24 were assigned to naval air force... Su-27 should not be available in USSR marine deck.
