    2bn$ (even CAN$) for a "Berlin Class" ship seems way too high, the last german ship of the class cost ~350m Euro.

    The easiest fillers for the Mission would be the UH1Y and AH1Z of course that assumes that the Canadians actually make the investment.
    They are in active production, no need to heavily modify as they are a finished product and are based off the same family of vehicles used now and the Canadian forces could use the USMC to train them up.

    I knew you would protest, but you went in the wrong direction.
    One of the biggest drivers of the need is the lack of Utility Choppers Quote. The Canadian forces CH-146 Griffon were developed from Civilian choppers and spec'ed with a shelf life ending in 2021.
    And your Reapers cannot transport personal.
    When I pointed to the UH1Y It can also mount gun pods and rockets, at a bare minimum it could kill two birds with one stone... to a degree. but optimally you want an attack chopper it carries more weapons and can be used more in concert with your Grand Coast guard. And if the Attacker and Utility share parts all the better.
