LStR-40 and FJB-40 says hi
Tzanhanim, Maglan, Givati as well

but if north korea gets t90s as gifts
finland straps ss-11 on a training plane which breaches the paris peace treaty
strapping tow-2 on ch118s doesn't look too bad
and they can probably "borrow" some heavier tanks just like when they did it in afghanistan
if that part of wiki is correct

keep current name and give reservist status with significant price drop.

Then
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?

So a 15pt Reservist squad with an ERYX, then. I know they're reservists, but I really hesitate when I think about ERYX squads being bought for 25pts a pop.

My mouth is moving, but nothing relevant is coming out. Also I cannot guarantee that my research is perfect or even remotely accurate.

Some flavours appeal more to some than others.

For the most part, Special Forces Units are the only exception.
