Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Japs invade both china and vietnam along with many other other south eastern asian countries. And what about the british defence of Singapore I think it's probably way too late for this but that would be cool if a map or two would be in .7 if I'm an idiot i apologize ahead of time:cya:

Yea china-burma-india theater had some interesting battles. I watched a program on the 'burma bridge busters' that was pretty cool though it would be hard to make a map on that. Link on the history program (it was on this summer when I saw it): http://www.ddaymuseum.org/museum_news112403.html I wonder if they'll do the japanese invastion of manchuria and what not. I mean if there goin do theoretical post 1945 maps why not pre-39 maps?

Battle of Shanghai could be good. Chinese could have a bunch of random weapons like : Mosin Nagant and K98 (yeah, they had k98s) as rifles. T26, Pz2 (yes, they had Pz2),Ft17 (if we have the french one day it will be modeled). It may seem strange but the nationalist chinese actually had many german helmets and used the potato masher (or german grenade, if you prefer). The reason they had all this was that the germans helped them build their army so they could beat Mao's communists. Of course when Japan invaded they asked leaved China alone.

If you check through the RFA files of 0.61, the Chinese are represented. As are D-Day Polish, but these aren't in any maps. I think eventually the Devs will get around to making them.

I'm pretty sure they've made or are still working on a Burma map(Britain vs. Japan). With McGibs jungle carbine that'll be one hell of a map. Now only if we could get grass fields.... that would be awesome.

The Russians only declaired war on Japan very late into the war but they had a massive offensive in China. Theres allot of famous battles and actions that took place in the South Pacific all through the war. Personally I'd like to see a Burma map with Australian Beaufighters and Spitfire MkVIII's.
