Canada has an interesting history of military vehicles. Early vehicles were obtained from Britain, and from the USA, but almost a million were also made right here in Canada. In fact, during World War II Canada became a major supplier of military vehicles to the British Commonwealth. 

The following pages will be expanded, but basically you will see:

  1. Canadian Military Pattern vehicles. Originally called DND Pattern (DND = Department of National Defence). http://bcoy1cpb.pacdat.net/cmp_canadian_military_pattern.htm 

  2. Modified Conventional Pattern (MCP) vehicles. These include staff cars, station wagons, and civilian style trucks. http://bcoy1cpb.pacdat.net/mcp_-_modified_conventional_pattern.htm 

  3. Standard Military Pattern post-WWII vehicles, also called "M" series. e.g. M38CDN, 135CDN. http://bcoy1cpb.pacdat.net/smp_-_standard_military_pattern.htm 

Other types may be added.
