A guide on how to build a Canada Deck. Canada is a interesting deck to play with severe weaknesses in several areas. If you want to actually play Canada competitively, just play CMW or Norad but this is just pure Canada, if you want to suffer through Canada this is what you have…
Canada’s strengths and weakness
SEAD & ASF
Anti Plane AA
Cheap Anti Heli AA
Medium Heavy-Super Heavy Range
Mediocre-Trash Plane Tab past Fighter and SEAD
All units of Canada
But it gets the job done…
It’s a 10HP CV for 125pts, nothing special but don’t underestimate the Browning
It’s a Cmd Infantry Squad… What did you expect?
All transports expect the truck are fine
It’s a fast jeep… what else?
CMD Leopard C1
It’s a 150pt 2TAV Armored CV… nothing special
It’s a 2FAV,2SAV semi survivable CV… it’s only 120pts
The most unique unit!
It’s a FOB!
It’s a 30pt Supply truck
Just use the Iltis
Just use the HLVW
It’s a Logistic Helicopter… Good for large games, inefficient for everything else
This is only really here to spam, it has more availability than Can Rifles 85 so it comes down to do you prefer extra availability or the improved LAW… Use these for Cannon Fodder
Canadian Rifles 85
The improved version of the above… It gains a LawA4 but loses avail. It’s 5ptr sucks but you can still use this as Cannon Fodder. The other reason to use this is for the TH495. It used to be 15pts with 2FAV 2SAV… It’s still a decent IFV
Canadian Airborne 90
This is your shock infantry which is fast and very solid, you have the CG M3 which has 275m extra range for the LAW than normal and 20AP, Comes with Best MG ingame and comes with acceptable AR. Take with Bison
This is your 10 man Eryx squad… It’s the same price as Legion 90 yes yes, but that is French bias so… Anyways 10 man Eryxs are beasts while defending and the Minimi is the best MG… take with Bison
It’s a bit redundant with highlanders 90 but it doesn’t mean it is bad
It’s Mediocre MANPADS but still fine
The only thing keeping this out of trash is it’s access of the TH495
It’s meh shocks but obviously better than having no inf but you have other stuff
It’s just worse base Can Airborne unless you care about 3 more CG M2 Rounds
You will have more success killing helicopters by blowing a pipe
it’s a 5 man FIST Squad
I’ll let your hopes die down
It’s very mediocre and has zip Anti plane AA but it has all the tools needed to defend the line from everything else
It’s a mortar…
This is to defend your wheeled opener because what else do you have ands it’s only 35pt
Your only decent AA…
It is a dual purpose missile, it has decent anti heli range, It can also hurt tanks, just keep in mind that this is SUPER micro intensive and a Arty/Plane Magnet… not the best Anti plane but what else do you have?
It’s gun AA, it’s not the best but what else do you get?
Use this to ground pound with 7HE for 50pts…
It’s the above with better range
It’s a wheeled mortar…
Leopard C2 Mexas
This tank is amazing…
It’s 14FAV (which is 1FAV above the 13FAV threshold), 17AP is Decent, 10RPM and it’s only 80pts… A must have for any deck involving Canada…
It’s a decent tank, it has 1 extra AP for free over the Leo 1A5… and 17AP at longer range is much better than 16
it is a ok 10RPM Fire support, it unfortunately has only poor optics unlike the Leo 1A4…
It’s a 25pt FS with Decent Armor (For the Price) and a decent gun
For 5pts (To the Mk.5) more, you gain 2AP that you don’t care about…
For 5pts (To the Mk.6) more, you gain 1AP that you don’t care about… the 275m range is nice but it’s bad
The ATGM is trash and the 5pts isn’t worth it
Commonwealth’s and therefore Canada’s recon tab is sad…
It’s a recon Heli
It’s your best recon vehicle…
It has very good optics but bushmaster is utter crap… atleast it is accurate I guess
Atleast it can fight…
Sneak around with it I guess
I mean, It could be used but it is also bad
M113 C&R Lynx
It’s a recon jeep…
I don’t hate the Chimera but I don’t like it either… You are forced to take it unless you want to be raped by anything heavier than 100pts
It’s a Tow 2 Carrier… it is very useful because what else do you have? It is fast so it can relocate
The above but without the speed…
Also why is this 2Fav and 2Sav but the inf M113 has 1Fav…? Pls gib Canada M113A2 Eugen
This is actually decent as for 40pts, you bring a Tow 2 and you usually get one shotted anyways…
M113 106MM M40
In Cmw just use Wombat
It is the Vehicle tab…
It’s an AH.7 without the inf, and the speed, and the autonomy, and a full set of rockets… but what else do you have? It’s good enough if you need FS, it’s still sad.
Somewhere in this list:
Haha Heat rockets funny…The Miniguns have half the RoF of 2x Browning…
The SS-11 is trash… Nuff Said
EF-101B Electric Voodoo
It is 90pts for 50% ECM and Medium Stealth… What a bargain!
It is a decent workhorse, it has the 6-5 Set up which is great!, the 6 Aim 9Ms are a bit much, but it’s defo better than the A Eagle with 6-4… Veteran, Vulcan… What do you want?
It has the crappy clusters but you have 8… not Block 5 Levels but certainly better than the American Fighting Falcons…
CF-116 Freedom Fighter
It has a VERY GOOD payload for 70pts… but it is a one way ticket…
It is a rocket plane… Atleast it has some heli hunting capabilities…
Yoogen pls gib HEAT Rocket plane, this has the same ones on the Gunship
hahahhahhehe… just use the Electric Voodoo
It’s a decent ASHM Plane… and Don’t play Naval.
Building the Deck
Building the Deck Part 1: Logistics
So we have 3 options:
Leopard C1 CP. It’s a tank cv with 2TAV
The M577, It’s 2FAV, 2SAV, 10HP and only 120pts
Command Squad, It’s a Inf CV.
Than you want a second CV:
You CAN take a Jeep CV but with the Avail Bonus, you really don’t need.
The Grizzly CP has 10HP for 125pts…
If you haven’t taken the Inf CV, you may take it here.
Now we have a Logi Truck:
The HLVW is a 30pts which imo is ideal…
You may take the 15pt truck but… it’s really inneficient.
and the FOB…
My deck would have: CMD Leopard C1, Grizzly CP, HLVW and the FOB (Downvet all)
Building the Deck Part 2: Infantry
Canadian Airborne 90 + Bison
It has the best MG in game… A Decent launcher with a extra step in range and 20AP is good enough… Not Vampyr levels… That is only for Chad VDV 90 and Lstr 40 but still Decent
10 man Eryx:
It has a Eryx… 10 man and Minimi…
Canadian Rifles+M113A1 As I have said, avail Bonus
Canadian Rifles 85+M113A1/Bison… Yes Bison is 10pts but it has 2FAV… You can always also just take it in the 5ptr… only 1Fav though…
Canadian Rifles 85+TH495
Decent IFV, Decent Infantry
This last slot is flexible
Are you struggling with tanks?
Maybe 20pt Eryx Spam
Are you running out of spam? get more spam…
Do you run out of Shock inf? Well get more Can Air 90…
You want Heliborne Inf? Can Air 90 in Helo…
My deck would have: Canadian Airborne 90+Bison, Highlanders 90+Bison, Canadian Rifles 85 + M113A1, Canadian Rifles 85+TH495 and Canadian Airborne 90 in CH-147 (All Downvetted)
And Note… Bison>Grizzly…
Building the Deck Part 3: Support
Wolverine… It’s not the best but it might be the thing between your opener and Mi17s
ADATS: It is too Overpriced as a Anti Helo but it’s what you have it’s a very good AA Weapon and a Decent AT…
Centurion Marksmen: not the best but what else do you have?
M125: It’s a Mortar
M109 R.C.H.A: It’s 50pts For 7HE… What a Bargain!
M109, M125, Centurion Marksmen (Downvet) and ADATS and Wolverine (Upvetted)
Building the Deck Part 4: Tanks
Light-Medium: Leopard C2
Fire Support: Leopard C1/ Centurion Mk 5
My Tank Tab is:
Leopard C2 Mexas, Leopard C2, Leopard C1 (All Upvetted)
Building the Deck Part 5: Recon
CH-136: It’s a Recon Helo…
Cougar Recon: It’s 20pts and can actually shoot…
Coyote: Can actually shoot and 45pts…
Pathfinders: Your recon inf
Yoogen… where Pathfinders 90/Jtf2???
Recce: Take in Grizzly or CH-147… Not needed but it’s there…
My Recon Tab is:
Pathfinders+Grizzly, Pathfinders+CH-147, Coyote, CH-136… (All Downvetted)
Building the Deck Part 6: Vehicles
It’s non turreted and slow… and no stab… and low RPM… but it’s all you have so… (It’s a minor… ask Anzac if it has a Heavy Tank)
Iltis Tow 2 It’s a Jeep ATGM… dies to a sneeze but what Non Transport/Pereh Transport Doesn’t?
Lav III Tow 2: Lots of extra ATGMs…
I bring Chimera and Iltis Tow 2
Building the Deck Part 7: Helicopters
Building the Deck Part 8: Aircraft
SEAD: Electric Voodoo
Bomber: CF-18 , CF-116
Rocket pod plane: CF-104 Starfighter
For My Deck I have:
CF-188, Electric Voodoo, CF-18 and 2x CF-116
CF-188 Upvetted and everything else Downvetted
