-In the thread we had convene that Quebec was not really a puppet state per se since it didn't entered the war against the CSA or anyone else, it only send 30 or 40 thousand soldiers to help patrol Canada at US demand. So it had some latitude in its relation to the US.kinda weird to use french uniform and insignia considering that:
- Quebec is a US puppet state in that timeline and France is an enemy of the US
- modern style french uniforms and insignia were adopted long after canada was conquered by the british so that they were never worn by anyone in what is now modern day Quebec.
- lastly, and a lot of people seem not to grasp this, quebecois are not french, do not consider themselves french and are not considered french by other francophones. The idea of an independent Quebec adopting french uniforms and insignias makes as much sense as New England declaring independence from the US tomorrow and then adopting british uniforms
-Obviously, but we imagined that Quebec would not want to wear British or US uniform either and French uniform kit would have been pretty cheap.
-Of course, this is why the uniform are pretty much the only French part (the insignias were added by Alterwright and I admit it make little sense), the only other option beside US uniform would have been a completely original model. We imagined that the nationalist government would not like to use US uniform since they wanted to have an ''independant'' image, not being seen as a ''french-USA''.
EDIT: they still use the US Stahlhelm and probably the US springfield, so its not like they adopted exactly the French uniform and arms.
