    Was ist Das?!

    No really, I have no idea what I just read.

    That, and it wouldn't ever make sense for a fictional nation to be called Nippon... You know... Because Nippon is literally Japan... Oh hey, and did you hear those Squad 7 boys got disbanded in 1935?

    I think that, considering the Valkyria Chronicles series is set in earlymid 18th century, a lot of this stuff sounds really awkward. There are some questionable design calls here too--there's no reason to wear ninja stuff or straw hats in the world of VC, especially with times as advanced as they are. This would require Japan to be tactically backward. I'm aware that most any fictional media takes liberties with depictions of real life events (Shoguns don't exist in the 1900s) but it's totally inconsistent with war as defined in VC.

    Also, if the depiction of events is fictional, it is strange to have a country named after an already-existing country like Japan, when other names are already fictional like Gallia.

    And..."banzai charge"? No offense but it comes across as culturally insensitive.

    That being said I'm not opposed to introducing other countries into the world of VC4, though there's more they could do with the nations already existing. I think it might be cool.

    Fine then, it'll be the Pacific Shogunate, still resembling Japan, a blend of feudal era and WWII era tactics and policies. We'll have Scouts, Engineers, and Snipers wear uniforms resembling WWII Japan soldiers, while Support Gunners and Lancers wear straw hats and Shock Troopers and Armored Soldiers wear Samurai Helmets and Armor.

    I thought VC was based around 1910/1940's Europe?
