No Canadian Marine units?

Postby CloakandDagger » Mon 29 Feb 2016 08:35

So I was making a few NORAD and Commonwealth decks and I noticed: Canada has basically no Marine deck units.
Just a crappy, expensive version of the LAV-M, and two TOW jeeps are the extent of Canada's Marine ability.

What the heck is going on here?

Can we please have, like, a TON of Canadian units set to be Marine?

It's pretty ridiculous for them to be completely missing. I realize that Canada is one of the small nations that was previously missing some specs, but that was multiple games ago, it's a part of two coalitions now, it can't be screwing over both of it's coalitions by not contributing any units.

I mean, come on, it's literally worse than ANZAC!

Anzac at least contributes planes, recon infantry, regular infantry, and TWO crappy artillery units, despite not having a Marine deck itself.

I want to see Canadian line inf, ADATs, F/A-18s, cougars and LAVs in marine among others..

CDF unification is a great start point for justification.

Yea Topspin kindly posted this issue on the Marshall forum after dlc3 came out sadly nothing came of it. Off the top of my head Canadian rifles, airborne maybe some of the Leo's and perhaps the marksmen, chuck in a few of the hornet variants and NORAD marine could be a very decent deck.
I hope your buratino's die screaming.

For large scale naval overseas deployment the relevant large scale unit would be the CAST brigade although I don't know if it would qualify as a marine unit.

At least just gib the F/A-18s the Marine spec. Gives you a F/A-18 ASF and cluster bomber for NORAD. Both things a USMC deck lacks.

What if Canada can't into marines, because it's payment for Canadian Airborne having access to motorised( The only shock paratroopers in game, who can into it)? :D

If the Eastern Bloc fulcrums are in then I think there's an argument to be made for the Canadian hornet.

So this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_ ... gade_Group
Cites components as 5 CBMG https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_Canadia ... gade_Group and a squadron of CF-5 fighters.

If people want to make a case for Marine spec, you might as well base yourself on that.
