CMP (Belg) (SD2)
CMP (Belg) is a Belgian Support unit in Steel Division II.
Background[edit | edit source]
The CMP (Canadian Military Pattern) truck was designed by General Motors and Ford and Chrysler in response to an invitation from the Canadian Department of National Defense from 1937. Designed to follow British CMP specifications, in order to maintain commonality with Commonwealth vehicles in the event of the war, the CMP truck became one of the crucial elements of British military forces after the BEF was forced to abandon most of its fleet at Dunkirk in 1940. Numerous variants were manufactured, with over 500,000 CMP trucks produced in total over the course of the war, used by all Commonwealth nations. This particular variant is the Ford F15.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
CMP provides 6th Airborne's Belgium elements with a unarmored transport for 40 units.
