However, Canada's military has been known to do quite well with the money they have. We have one of the best-trained fighting forces in the world, as our soldiers are not trained as specialists (like in the US). Rather, they are trained heavily in a wide variety of areas.
Canada's military also invented the most effective camouflage currently in existence, the revolutionary CAnadian Disruptive PATtern, or CADPAT. It is a digital pattern, printed in leafy-green or desert pixels by a computer. The US Marines copied this design and turned it into MARPAT (MARine PATtern).
The service rifle of the Canadian Forces, the Diemaco C7, is essentially a US-issue Armalite M16, but better.
