Canadians and Canadiens might consider calling an alert. CofC is trumping up a pretext for attacking GS. It may be a diversion. Those forces he sends may suddenly swing north for your territories.

Agreed the Canadian military is on high alert, the army has the border closed and heavily patrolled, the RCAF are scrambling CF-18s, and CF-101s and RCN ships are moving out of harbor to patrol our waters.

Agree. Some degree of discretion is in order when discussing ALL reality forces.

If you go to dakkadakka they have a paint range compatibility chart that includes army painter along with the other major brands. You just need to know which vallejo paint Cama is using and cross reference. If you can't find the chart I can PM it to you.

edit: their list isn't very complete though, looking at it again.

Take care.

Yeah, the dakka list isn't very complete and doesn't cover those colors. My main go to list was scale model helper but his site isn't working and I'm not sure when or if it'll come back. And that's a shame as it was a massively comprehensive list of FS colors and their equivalents in a lot of ranges.

So Polaris Indy RMKs then, though I did come across a pic of a Ski-doo Skandic being used by the Canadian army but I guess that depends mostly on the period.

still having snowmobile mounted infantry would work well considering that most of my games happen on arctic maps.

So the GHQ LAV-25s make great Canadian Coyotes. Do the Canadians use the other variants, like the LAV-AT and the LAV Mortar carrier? And how are Coyotes organized? Mechanized infantry units? Armored Reconnaissance?

Thanks,
