Give CAB 90 Eryx
Bring Vandoos back and give them M3
Highlanders can be reserve
PS : can they strap something better than ss-11 on ch118?
maybe i-tow or tow2?
There's no point to giving Canada reservists: they have plenty of cheap infantry as-is that is more effective than reservists could ever be. By extension, neither NORAD nor CMW have need of them.
If you'd want to create a completely new unit to give them the M3, then what's the point of giving CA'90 an Eryx? Why not then give the Vandoos an Eryx? (There won't be any new units for Canada regardless, but your logic requires more work.)
As far as the helicopter ATGMs go, there's precedent for putting TOWs on a Huey - since in Vietnam, that's how they tested the original ones. Problem is that Canada really doesn't have precedent for having Huey gunships to begin with IIRC.
On a side note: would Highlanders '75 receive the same renaming and training treatment that Highlanders '90 does?
