zju_wangyi;3380216Here is a blog webpage of a Taiwan-made pcgame which is named " War of Eight years II" http://blog.sina.com.tw/8war/

Is that for BF2? I don't if it's a sequel. If it is, I'll find someone who speaks taiwanese to explain it to me because their models are amazing.

It seems to be a single-player shooter game.:)

bakarocket;3380095Er. Right. Okay, how about you be president and I'll be Prime Minister?

On the topic of uniforms and vehicles, I have some okay pics of an in-law (we think) of mine with an unidentified tank.

On the photo Renault NC-27, evolution of Renault FT-17. All chinese NC-27 has been captured by IJA in 1931.

zju_wangyi;3380147The first one is the most difficult to recognize, we present it with X; the second seems to be like 校; the third one looks like 廷 or 题; if it is X校廷, it's most likely to be a man's name; if it is X校题, it probably means "X校writes" (题means "write" and X校 is the name of the man who writes this)

The problem is that isn't a Japanese name. Does it resemble a Chinese name? If so, that brings another problem, why is a Chinese man wearing a Japanese uniform?

hoho, we are somewhat going offtopic, I'm afraid. Let's go back focusing on chinese theater.;)

Absolutely. Actually that was why I posted the pic in the first place. I can't figure out what tank that is, because the engine block is too long and the exhaust is on the wrong side. The photo might be flipped, but even then the engine block is still too long.

Anyway, the real picture would be a great source for skin details, and I'm going to use it to build a tank as soon as I can figure out what tank it is.

edit: Thank you Taranov! I had no idea the Japanese used the captured tanks, and that could be fun used in the Chinese theatre. Now why is a Chinese guy wearing a Japanese uniform? Or maybe Korean?

@bakarocket: The man in your pic is not wearing Japanese Uniform, instead, he is wearing Chinese Civil Revolution Army's uniform (early version, before Nanking Government was built). Look at this photo. jianglw1.jpg The man is wearing the same uniform as that in your pic. Do you know who he is? He is Jiang Jieshi ( President of Nanking Government, I'm not sure he is the second president or the third, because there was a big mess in china at that moment).

Referring to the tank, it's most likely to be the French FT-17 light tank unknown1yh7ep4.jpg ft172mc5.jpg (look at the part where I marked for comparison). The Chinese Northeast Army bought some FT-17 in 1920's. In fact, the man in your pic is probably to be an officer of Chinese Northeast Army which was lead by Zhang Zuolin (Zhang Zuolin is one of the biggest warloads of china at that time). After Zhang Zuolin was killed by japanese in 1928 (japanese troop set an explosive at the railway where Zhang Zuolin's train must pass), his son Zhang Xueliang began to lead Northeast Army. He made a great decision, that was to let his troop merge into Nanking Government's Central Army. From then on, more and more other warloads began to merge into Central Army, for fighting together against the invading japanese.

Thread's not dead, I was just busy drinking. I'm not sure the uniform is the same though. The cap design is totally different, the pockets are different, and the general has no collar insignia (that doesn't mean so much considering his social rank though). Most importantly, we have to remember the source of the pic. It was found in our family shrine buried in a bunch of papers.

He made a great decision, that was to let his troop merge into Nanking Government's Central Army. From then on, more and more other warloads began to merge into Central Army, for fighting together against the invading japanese.

I was reading a bit about this as well, and it seems that more people were joining the IJA than were joining the Communist and Kuomintang armies. That could make for some great map ideas.

(This is very surprising considering how angry people are at the Japanese now. There were 1 million Chinese people in the Japanese army for goodness sake.)

They were called "pseud troop" who fight chinese resisters for Japanese. They were traitors. :mad:

But they were not considered as part of IJA.
