~ In-game description

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) is a playable free DLC faction in Squad. This faction is the fourth conventional army featured in the game. It was originally developed by fans of Squad as a modification for the game, but was later incorporated officially by OWI as DLC. This faction was added in the Alpha 15.3 update on July 27, 2019.[1]

Flag

The flag representing the Canadian Army in Squad is the Flag Of Canada, unofficially called the Maple Leaf. The red and white colours come from the Royal Arms Of Canada (derived from Saint George's Cross, the Flag of England, whom Canada still owes allegiance as part of the Commonwealth under the United Kingdom), while the Maple Leaf stems from coats of arms from the 1800's (known as the Red Ensign)

Kits and equipment

The Canadian Army is the first conventional faction to have the Sniper kit under the Specialist category, equipped with a bolt-action rifle. The faction also has access to plenty of long-range scopes.

In-game equipment

The Canadian Armed Forces features a mix of both US and European weaponry, some of which is produced locally in Canada and some of which is procured from friendly nations. Nearly all CAF combat roles have optical sights, making the faction extremely lethal in infantry combat.

The CAF vehicle lineup is extensive and dynamic, including options such as open-top ATVs, light jeeps, and high-tier wheeled IFVs. The Canadian LAV 6.0 combines the speed of a wheeled platform with the firepower and armor of a heavy IFV. However, Canadians lack vehicles capable of launching guided missiles.
