Since its inception in 1949, NATO has been a community of free nations
brought together with a common goal, to defend the freedom of Western
Europe and North America. To do this Canada, France and the Netherlands
deploy armoured and mechanised forces in West Germany.
Old allies have also been called on, and an ANZAC Brigade of
Australian and New Zealand troops answers the call to fight. Canada, the
Netherlands, and Australia all have 105mm armed Leopard 1 tanks, while
both Canada and the ANZACs have M113 mechanised infantry. France has its
own 105mm armed AMX-30 tank, while infantry travel in AMX-10P IFVs or
4×4 VAB APCs. The Dutch also have new Leopard 2 tanks and mount their
infantry in YPR-765 IFVs.
Recon options include the Canadian Lynx and Dutch M113 C&V
tracked vehicles and the heavily armed French AMX-10 RC armoured car.
Among the many support choices there are Canadian and Dutch M109
artillery, French rapid fire AMX AuF1 SP 155mm howitzers, Canadian
ADATS, French Roland and Mephisto, and Dutch PRAT missile vehicles.
