One thing I am sure of, no one is in any danger of being hit by a Canadian aircraft carrier.
Favorite Canadian military joke:

Leading up to a new campaign The US UK and Canada were discussion what forces they would contribute. The Canadian Minister of defense offered their largest warship, 1/2 of the army and 1/3 of the air force.

Which ended up being, Two Mounties a canoe and a flying squirrel.

And if we get really pissed off we'll burn the White House.

Again.

My favourite Canadian military story was in the paper a few years ago. Apparently in the early 30's they discovered that the American military  had in their contingency plans, plans for invading Canada.

They responded by developing their own contingency plans for a preemptive invasion of America - striking through Illinois and Michigan IIRC.

Included in those plans were such details as acquiring the necessary maps from gas stations along the invasion routes. :lol:

True story.

We only make fun of the French because we desperately envy them since their offshore race scene is so much healthier and better developed than any other country. 

Edit: Discussing this with son's friends on Discord, we totally agreed that France v Poland is totally something that you'd see in War Thunder

I suppose, sort of... Well, I guess as well as the French can try... Maybe...

Although 30 divisions advanced to the border (and in some cases across it), the assault never happened. When the quick victory in Poland allowed Germany to reinforce its lines with homecoming troops, the offensive was stopped. The French forces eventually withdrew amid a German counter-offensive on 17 October.
