Can someone make a timeline of what arms the Canadian army used until they were taken out of service?
Thanks very much ive been looking for a long time for this
I have on my computer a PDF file showing all the guns ever used in the canadian forces. Wolfe got alot of them but there are a bunch left out that we probably dont know we ever had.Originally Posted by Wolfe117
Thats cool that explains why I was seeing older soldiers pics from the 60's-70's with FN FAL's.
The C7A2 is still in its early stages, that cadpat camo is not officially there. You know they change it or put it on ther A1's right now.
THe Canadian Army never used Carbines or Thompsons During WWII?
By the way the 303 Lee Enfield is still in service in the CF.
Do you have a picture of what this weapon looks like?Soon to be in 2006 C7A2 which looks like **** with the cadpat on it.
The "FN FAL" C1 was basically just a British L1A1 SLR with a hole cut in the upper reciever for loading the weapon with stripper clips whilst the magazine was still on the weapon. The C2 was a fully automatic LMG version with a heavy barrel and 30 round magazine.
the Canadians used the sten gun i think it was called anyways it was a british SMG, the 303 is not used by the CF only used by Cadets. Right now the A2 is in the testing phase, the CADPAT on the C7A2 is only the Sling other than that its either green or black...Originally Posted by [M14
Best to my knowledge (off the top of my head):
They did use the M1 Carbine and Thompson during WWII; I have seen photos.
I have seen training footage of the Canadian Rangers (Inuit and Natives in remote areas) and they use the Lee Enfield .303 still.
The Cadets use the Lee Enfield Mk. VII - .22cal conversion of the .303.
I think the FN C1A1 was in service in 1955. And like someone pointed out, the C2 was a heavier barrel, automatic, 30 round weapon for support.
C7A2 = ugly
Didn't we use the Stirling at some point or am I on crack again?
How can you say the A2 is ugly when its not even built?
I've seen Canadian soldiers during WWII using M1 Carbines. Springfields too....
actually the C-7A2 is right now in the testing..i saw it on that show 'Truth duty Valor'
What?? i Watch that show and i havent even seen it.......there's only been on episode...
