ConceptEdit

The Canadians are meant to be a slow-starting, unpredictable nation. In the latter ages, Canadian seapower is overwhelming, while their land and air forces are highly specialized. The lack of an effective light infantry unit will hinder them in close-quarters fighting, but when the infantry set up, there's a deathtrap waiting to happen. With their cloak and ability to move through forests, the Canadians can have an army pop out of almost anywhere, although their long set-up time before battle slightly balances that. I attempted to counter the Canadians' glaring weakness at close-quarters-combat with the mortar team, although the inevitable splash damage from that will leave either side with some collateral damage. The Canadian scouts are meant to be commandoes, and the transport helicopter accents that. Yes, you can pop in a tank or a few snipers. But sending in 10 JTF-4 scouts and sabotaging everything in sight is extremely gratifying.

Overall, the Canadians are a delicate nation to 'play' as. At long range, they are deadly. But close in with them and their forces will most likely fold in no time.
