A Canadian mechanized platoon is organised into three sections and command group. A section usually consists of ten men, a section commander (Sergeant) and 2IC (Master Corporal) each armed with a C1 FN assault rifle, M113 driver with an SMG, three riflemen with C1 FN assault rifles, two C2 heavy-barrel FN Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) gunners, a Carl Gustav 84mm SRAAW (M) (Short-Range Anti-Armour Weapon-Medium) gunner and a Carl Gustav 84mm SRAAW (M) loader with a C1 FN assault rifle. The HQ Group also includes a C5 GPMG (M1919 chambered in 7.62mm NATO) machine-gun and a 60mm mortar. The platoon is also issued with a number of M72 SRAAW (L) light short-range anti-armour weapons.

The mechanised platoons of 4 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group are trained and prepared for large scale combined arms defence and counterattacks against a Warsaw Pact invasion of West Germany and Western Europe. Training, equipment and tactics are designed to face this threat, and annual exercises keep them fully prepared.
