Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*

Canadian soldiers are armed with British Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* rifles, which is historically incorrect as the Canadian forces were armed with Ross Rifles during the Second Battle of Ypres. German soldiers also use this rifle instead of correct Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifles.

Machine Guns

Maxim 1895

Canadian soldiers use Maxim 1895 machine guns. This is not entirely wrong because the British Expeditionary Force was still equipped with Maxims when sent to France in 1914.
