oscar989Did the Japanese inflict heavy casualities on the Soviet infantry when the Soviets invaded in 1945?

Soviet loses were minimal . The Soviets sent veteran troops, veteran generals and tested new combined arms doctrines they learned from experience agaisnt germany with equipement ment to defeat the german war machine. The result was outlandish, especially considering Japan had a big advantage because of favorable terrain and horrible infrastructure (wich wasn't too good for soviet mobile warfare).

" As a result of the Russians' meticulous planning and bold offensive plan, they took 594,000 Japanese prisoners including 143 generals and 20,000 wounded. The Kwangtung Army suffered over 80,000 men and officers killed in combat which lasted less than two weeks. In contrast, the well- prepared Soviet Army had 8,219 killed and 22,264 wounded." [13-175]"

I would love to see some Japan vs. Soviet Union maps in FH2. There are a few battles that can be recreated: Lake Khasan - 1938 Khalkhin Gol - 1939 Battle of the Kuril Islands - 1945 Operation August Storm - 1945 I think that Lake Khasan and Khalkhin Gol would be rather well balanced. If we could make the Kuril Islands map a naval map with infantry combat over the islands then maybe it would also be balaned there. Then as some others have pointed out, we could put Japanese Ha-Go's and Chi-Ha's versus Russian BT-7's and T-60's (scout tanks). Btw, can somebody please show me a picture of this Japanese Ho-Ni "tank destroyer"? I didn't even know they had one.
