    A suggestion - make some infantry types (SMG gunner, AT gunner perhaps?) wear the officer's hat, as it was common in the Japanese army for all ranks and was used commonly by enlisted men etc - it would go some ways to increase visual variations for the Japanese side Smile

    OK, it sounds good! Basketball I think, SMGman could be equipped with an officer cap.

    Here's a stationary MG "type 92". Rate of fire 450, bullet 7,7×58mm SR Arisaka, cartridge 250 bullets.

    "Type 1" is almost the same. There is only one difference bullet 6,5×50mm SR Arisaka.

    Here's a sniperman in the "scout squad".


    And it is a first try to implement MG Type 92 Smile I have to rotate MG 3D model on 180 degrees, coz MG shoots from the back Very Happy
    And there is smth. wrong with a texture or may be MG 3D model, coz it is covered with a green color  :O:


    PS
    It is a very sorry, that Japan Community is not interested to implement a Japan side in the game.

    FIXED!

    It goes without saying that Japan side will be available for the STA3.x.  Perhaps, it'll be available for STA2.x also.

    Will be proceed this "beast"? Type 96 150 mm Infantry Mortar
    That's a big "candy"! Can't take a toss  lol!
    For sure, there will be available Type 97 81mm

    Thanks!  salute Would u like to take part in the texture preparing?

    Meanwhile, we've already prepared:

    ATG 37mm may destroy BT-5 at the distance ~1200m, BT-7 at the distance ~800m.

    Mortar 81mm Type97


    MG Type 92

    And tank Chi-Ha Type94 is on the way!  happy


    I've found Japan tankers.

    First try to see how the japan side does Smile
    There were the next sides:
    Soviet:
    1. 6x T-26
    2. 2x infantry platoon

    Japan:
    1. 2x mortars 81mm
    2. 2x MG
    3. 1x infantry platoon
    4. 4x ATG 37mm

    Soviet attacked towards Japan positions. After a couple minutes almost all Soviet infantry were wiped out by MG's and mortars. Then became a turn for the tanks.







    Losses:
    All Soviet units completely destoyed
    Japan lost:
    - almost all platoon infantry
    - 2x ATG
    Some members of ATG's and MG's crews were killed.

    Conclusion:
    Japan side is quite strong at least against T-26 and infantry Smile Take a note: Japan infantry is still out of AT rifle.

    Here's a final variant Chi-ha with a camo. Tank is a very weak, but it is OK against BT-5/T-26. The better variant Chi-ha Shinhoto is not available yet.
    There are four tankers. One place (F3/Commander give access to the rear MG. U've to take this seat)

    戦=fighting
    一=1
    二=2
    三=3
    "戦一, 戦二, 戦三" May be an abbreviation. May be troops designation.
    志=ambition
    乃=is
    虎=tiger
    白=white
    愛=love
    國=country or motherland
    愛國=patriotic
    "み,こ,の,イ,そ,あ" These words are hiragana or katakana. These words resemble letters. Such as "A, B, C, D". If they appear alone, they may be used as serial numbers.

    I am not a Japanese, so I can not guarantee that the above explanation is correct. Very Happy

    I am not detailed, but I supplement within the range I know.
    Kanji or Hiragana seems to be various ways of being used.
    Japan had also troops grouped in the pronunciation of Kanji.


    Tank 1st division tank 1st Regiment

    1st company(Type95):ち
    2nd company (Type97):く
    3rd company(Type97):志
    4th comapany(Type97):乃

    These name from 1st Regiment's founding location, 久留米市(Kurume city).
    Kurume city at 筑紫平野(Chikushi plain or Tsukushi Plain).
    筑紫平野=筑紫野

    筑紫野(Chikushino)

    ちくしの(Chikusino)

    ち(Chi) く(Ku) し(Shi) の(no)

    ち(Chi) く(Ku) 志(Shi) 乃(no)

    -------
    When using Hiragana and Katakana as a number.

    early← →late
    い ろ は に ほ へ と ち り ぬ る を....
    イ ロ ハ ニ ホ ヘ ト チ リ ヌ ル ヲ....

    ------
    愛國,虎 were were used in order to lifting fighting spirit.

    sorry,I dont know details how to rule in old japan forces.

    There will be two types of Chi-ha tank: mod.37 and mod.39 with three types of camo:
    - yellow (early one with a differ rear deck)
    - green
    - purple


    I've to confess Japanese tanks were not designed to fight against the other (enemy) tanks shooter puzzled
    It is a pure device to support infantry attack. Moreover, according to the Japanese Field Service Regulations the tank must not move more than 400 meters form the infantry location.

    Japan side gets a unique soldier - kamikaze!

    As u can see a soldier has a specific bandana and equipped with arisaka+bayonet. This unite has effectiveness =3. Ordinary rifleman has effectiveness =1. It does that in the defencive positions kamikaze will tight greatly a defended area. There will be nomore than one kamikaze per one infantry squad.
