For me I think pitched infantry battles and suicidal charges against enemy tanks when I think of the Japanese in WWII.
I've also been reading Rays of the Rising Sun lately, about Japan's various puppet states and puppet armies.
It makes me sad Inner Mongolia never acquired independence and that the Japanese used their White Russian soldiers so disposably.
I could totally see a manga or anime about a White Russian serving in the Manchukuan Army during the Second Sino-Japanese war, Soviet border incidents and WWII. Apparently they had a big sabotage operation in Siberia that was hardly covered.>>26216
Didn't make that connection!>>26217
You're right, the Type 99 155mm howitzer is a better comparison, however I wanted to stress how fuckhuge 150mm is.
