On the other hand, Canada is also in a nifty defensible position where the entire population, numbering only 34 million, could virtually vanish into the Arctic - and very few militaries in the world would be equipped to follow them. You see, [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia General Winter]] does not just fight for the Russians.

UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne was when the Canadian army began [[TookALevelInBadass Taking levels in Badass]], as it turned in an impressive performance at places like Passchendaele, Ypres, and of course Vimy Ridge, a performance that was integral to Canada's development both as a nation and on the world stage. The "Hundred Days Offensive" is sometimes called "''Canada's'' Hundred Days" as the Canadian Corps was used as "The Shock Army of the British Empire" in the attacks the pushed the Germans back over the Hindenburg Line. Canadian soldiers later made their BadassArmy reputation clear in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII[[note]]Storming Juno Beach (the second best defended sector) on D-Day and advancing the farthest is a particular highlight.[[/note]]and the UsefulNotes/KoreanWar. Since then, though, they are usually deployed in UN peacekeeping, and that made some Canadian soldiers unhappy. Currently serving with their U.S. allies in the WarOnTerror in Afghanistan, they also served in Bosnia and the First UsefulNotes/GulfWar. To this day the Canadian forces have a reputation for punching above their weight and can be [[BewareTheNiceOnes downright scary]] in joint-forces training exercises.

The Canadian Forces, as they are known today, were formed by the unification of the Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Canadian Navy, and Canadian Army into a single command structure in 1968 to [[ExecutiveMeddling save on]] [[BoringButPractical non-essential costs like overlapping training, supply and administrative structures]]. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Forces#Unification_and_beyond This had elicited some resistance]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks from Canadian soldiers]], but over time, they accepted it -- mostly. The unified administration and training ultimately worked out after initial teething troubles, but the idea of trying to create a single service identity and uniform with no distinction between army, navy and air force never really caught on with the troops. Gradually, the services reasserted some of their former identities, with Maritime Command regaining the use of naval rank titles after a few years, followed by the readoption of separate dress uniforms for the (still lower-case) army, navy and air force in [[TheEighties the 1980s]] (though the new Distinct Environmental Uniforms were more of a [[PaletteSwap palette swap]] of the Unification uniform with some differences in detail rather than a return to the services' former uniforms).

* Canada was the first country to adapt the [[CoolGuns/BattleRifles FN FAL]] Battle Rifle. They had developed their variant referred to as the [=C1A1=] Battle Rifle. (Which is a derivative of the British [=L1A1=] Self-Loading Rifle.) Like the [=L1A1=], it was designed with imperial measurements instead of metric measurements. It can only fire in semi-automatic and it can be fed stripper clips. They also developed the [=C2A1=], which was used by the Canadian Navy that can fire in full-auto. It was replaced with the Colt C7, which was a Colt AR-15 made under a license.

The current standard issue weapon is the C7 Rifle, an M16 variant which is modified for better reliability and is commonly equipped with the C79 optical sight. It is supplemented by the C8 Carbine, [[CaptainObvious carbine]] version similar to the M4.
