There should be a campaign about that, consisting of Japan succesful invasion in some region, the example is like in my country where Japan successfully took control the area over dutch in WW2 before that atomic bomb dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Found this, this thing looking interesting at first. A "cheap" weapon (then the production must be cheap with a technology first?) that consisting of bomb that is attached to a balloon. But, turn out to be a failure (lol). Anyway, this one is considered as a secret weapon. The balloon just fly away to North America without anything, just wind (pretty inaccurate and ineffective as it is kill only 6 people in entire American region lol)

If not satisfied you can use that helmet too.
For the weapon, they use type 38 as main in the early war,

but changed it to type 99 in the later.

Thought they not changed them all.
The type 38 is good because it has little recoil, only little damage (10-15 rounds per minute). But type 99 had bigger cartridge (thus bigger damage) and had anti aircraft sight (bonus against aircraft?). It is only bad caused of big recoil (small weapons, big cartridge) and it is a last ditch, thus it has poor quality. They always had bayonet with them.
Sorry, it is hard to search it :P

Could you post where these battles took place please, and (for trigger ideas) how it was fought too?

Might be a good future project when I finish that AoS campaign in the campaign suggestions/ ideas.

The balloons I think should be neutral and has a 10%, after neutral end their turn, to blow up. These ideas are for the weapon's inaccuracy and unpredictability. :lol:

We need the AM6 "Zero" for these campaigns.

Here you might find some good planes that were used by Japan to implement:

I believe they all saw service during WWII, but correct me if I am wrong, asap!

I think i will try at least making a map, about a battle in Chumpon, Thailand between the Imperial Army Battalion and Thailand Resistance. But one question, what do you think? A full scale of battalion (consisted of 600 units, divided into 3 companies consisting of 100 infantries and 50 machine gunners, leaded by a Lieutenant-Colonel) or just a company (leaded by Captain)? We will need the infantries, machine gunners, the Light Cruiser Kashii (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_cruiser_Kashii), and a general generally. :lol:

So what nation color should Japan have?

White? Or a tan that is lighter than Russia? Or both!? ;)

Well some planes should be green, but they can be a darker shade of green than allies, and with a red dot to show from which nation it belongs.

Type 89 I-Go (Chi-Ro)
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_89_I-Go
Used in the second Sino Japanese war, and even against the Russians, but I don't think it should be a producable one. This is because the type 97 Chi-Ha was more widely produced and has an upgrade version for whenever we plan to put that in.

Some other tanks are:
Lights:
-Ha-Go
-Ke-Ni (upgrade of the Ha-Go)
Medium:
-Type 97 Chi-Ha (most widely produced medium tank)
-Type 1 Chi-He (upgraded from Chi-Ha)
Amphibious
-Type 2 Ka-Mi
My idea for the Ka-Mi: Campaign unit. Cannot not be produced. Should be able to traverse in water in a similar fashion to the undeads in AoF.

[The upgrades are up to you to implement in one update, or a separate update for when upgrade units have been figured out for the other nations.]

Does that mean you want them to bear the colors of their flags?

Well, the USA, and Russia neither have the same colors of their flags on them. ;)

I was just asking if you: wanted them to have the same color scheme as the flag, or if you wanted the symbols put on them. (but which color would they mainly be?)

If so, use the flag. It is easy to recognize anyway by their flag. Between square or just circle like germany.

So you meant their faction emblem then. ;)

I was asking for which primary color it should be?

I guess just let the primary color like the infantry, for vehicles maybe like russian, but lighter.
