Does anybody know if the nose cone on the Type 96 LMG was removed for .65? The Type 99 LMG should be the one with the nose cone.

Well you guys can debate the reliability of the Arisaka Type 99 all you want; the documentaries you may have seen are in reference to "last-ditch" weapons, which did not see widespread usage even to the very end of the war.

"last-ditch" rifles were manufactured around 1944-1945 and only distributed to fresh troops needing to be armed in the first place.

The countless Japanese soldiers in China were using Type 38s and Type 99s probably manufactured before Pearl Harbor!! Soldiers on the front lines throughout the Pacific were using the millions of high-quality Arisakas manufactured most likely BEFORE the war even started!!

Last-ditch rifles were built towards the end when Japan was fighting a losing war, and needed to arm troops behind the front lines and in secondary defensive or policing roles throughout their conquered territories (troops that Japan wanted to arm as cheaply as possible).

Even among these troops, the vast majority of their weapons were of standard high quality manufacture (and "standard" Japanese manufactured weapons were of the same or better production quality as the weapons of any other nations)....what was poor quality was not the manufacture but the design; Such as the Type 11 machine gun, the Type 14 Nambu pistol, the Type 94 pistol (which was used by pilots and tank crews mostly).....when people refer to the "poor quality" of these weapons, it's not that they were manufactured poorly, it's that the basic DESIGNS of some of these weapons were poor (ie; the Type 11's ammo loading mechanism which seemed like a good idea but in practice was clumsy, awkward, and often plain didn't work).

The vast majority of "last-ditch" Arisaka rifles were distributed within the home islands themselves and made with the express purpose of arming as many of the Japanese population as possible in order to defend against US invasion.

Did you know that both the Type 96 and Type 99 had a scope as standard feature (in addition to iron sights)? Technically they should give us a scope for the type 99 too.

1.5x standard wasn't it? Its no use having a scope if the range that the scope can see is when the shots are so innacurate that they dont hit anywhere near the center dot.

Exactly. I'm glad you mentioned that.

The bolt action rifles should use the Battlefield: 1942 reload times and animations, and the Japanese need the MP18 replaced by the Type 100 SMG.

Yep strap a bomb to yourself and dive under a tank. Sadly it is sort of like what those damn Iraqis are doing now.
