Japan - Get Started


Army Guide

Japanese Army

The Japanese forces would use their knowledge of the terrain and surroundings to try to gain the upper hand - laying traps and ambushes, and using the harsh environment to their advantage. They were so heavily indoctrinated that there wasn’t a thought of surrender - they would fight to the death.

Get started with: Imperial Japanese infantry, Japanese Veteran infantry, Type 97 Chi-Ha tank

Key Battles: Philippines, Burma, Pacific islands

Special Naval Landing Force

The Japanese SNLF were the marines of the Imperial Japanese Navy - highly trained, high quality troops with excellent morale. Their uniforms were olive drab rather than the Army’s khaki and they carried equipment packs including their distinctive gas-masks.
