Coloring request from

Since I'm running out of ideas myself and that he proposed me to color his drawing, I thought 'Why not?"
It would be good for me to practice~Original descriptionOne of those classic cases of "it's much darker in reality" -.- My scanner has become too used to charcoal already
I felt I should update my popular but ultimately outdated Canadian Forces Land Command picture with something more recent (not to mention they don't even carry that name anymore). Here we have Stacy McCormick showing off the Canadian Objective Force Warrior 2 (COFW) armour used by the Canadian Forces in WW3 and later campaigns, sans her AWE helmet. COFW is a two part modular armour system similar to that used by most Western Coalition countries, featuring bullet defeating armour on top with shrapnel defeating soft armour inside. That being said, the Canadian Republic has some of the lightest troops. Unlike the US or the European Federation, they tends to lean away from powered armour or heavier protection. Not only does it help drive down costs, but it makes soldiers less reliant and technology and less vulnerable to hackers and EMP. That being said, Canadians still carry the title "Stormtroopers" despite the seemingly outdated, rugged approach.
As far as weapons, Stacy is a standard rifleman (riflewoman?) unlike Celestine Maxille ravajava.deviantart.com/art/Ce… who is a Specialist. This means better weapons and armour at the loss of cool electronics like a micro UAV and elementals (little robots with mounted SMG's). She carries a C-25 battle rifle, a combat shovel and a knife that doubles as a bayonet. Like most Canadians, the C-25 is really all that is ever used in combat, the knife being used usually as a box cutter, shovel being used for exactly what you think a shovel would be used for . That being said, WW3 did feature some bayonet charges, the majority of them ill fated, but they existed.
Aside from the uber high tech AWE system helmets, Canadians only carry a single computer on them. The RIM SCREEN, a fairly popular cellphone sized computer in the Red Skies universe is carried, acting as everything from a radio to a GPS and everything in between. A traditional map and compass is usually carried, and the Med-Tech usually has an old analog radio just in case the SCREEN's EMP shielding (only available in the military version, sorry) fails. Due to the nature of SCREEN's, they are more rugged than even the best battlefield computers.
Anywho, may sit down and colour this later, no promises
