Canadian Service Flag from 1921 to 1957

The Canadian Army were the armed forces of Canada from 1940 to 1968. It was formed from the Canadian Militia, following the latter's modernization in the late 1930s. The Army, unlike the Expeditionary Force of World War I, was formed autonomously from the British government. Hence, it was mobilized solely under the jurisdiction of the Canadian government. At the time, the government wished only to support Allied forces with weapons and supplies with a limited amount of units being involved in engagements. After 1945, the Canadian Army saw a limited role during the Korean War as a field force. After that, it did not participate in any major international conflicts and was unified with the Navy and Air Force to form the combined Canadian Forces in 1968.

Battlefield 1942[]

In Battlefield 1942, the Canadian Army appears in Patch 1.6; fighting exclusively against the Wehrmacht for the city of Caen in northern France.


Against the Wehrmacht[]

Player Kits[]

The Canadian Army classes is identical to the British Army with the exception of the Assault, which is issued a Johnson LMG instead of a BAR 1918.

The Canadian Army is similar to their British counterparts in terms of appearance, sporting the Brodie helmet (albeit with an additional net cover) along with British backpacks and webgear. They wear camouflaged Denison smocks with "Canada" emblazoned above their left chest pocket, and brown pants with black boots. Medics do not have the large red cross, and Scouts do not have camouflage on their helmets.
