I’d like to put a veto vote on south and north Korea being in the same tree, seems a bit out of touch with the current geopolitics from those who voted that option.
NK would be a good fit for a line in China and although there’s some rough history SK and Japan are on far better terms now so if as I suspect there’s not enough for a standalone tree it would make for some good additions to Japan diversifying their very single focus top tier lineups.
How is there enough equipment for a SK tree unless you do a united SK + DPRK tree and have it start from tier 4 or something like Israel?
SK’s vehicle’s from it’s independence after WW2 being mostly American based shores up a weaker Japan tree, who’s post war consists of a few US vehicles followed by indigenous designs. Type 74’s + SK M48 upgrades followed by Type 90’s + K1’s sounds plenty strong. Plus SK has way more SPAA options to shore up the basically exhausted Japanese post war options.
NK going to China would be interesting if it isn’t added as a united KR tree.
Well, not really. The Type 81 is still far from its full potential and the Type 11 is just as self contained, with even more advanced weaponry. On top of that a trailer mounted Type 11 can be implemented with the FCS vehicle, thus providing full radar search, LOAL and datalink course correction.
Japan might be lacking in some areas, namely CAS and support vehicles, but SAM isn’t one of those.
The geopolitical aspect? Korea is currently one country, just divided like East and West Germany! (Of course, only under the laws of SK and NL) The people of North and South Korea also desire unification, insisting on one Korea, and jointly participating in international social events such as the Olympics. Geopolitically, the North-South union tree is more correct.
Technically, as has been said above, it makes sense for NK to be parasitic on China or the Soviet Union. However, it would be absurd to say that SK has almost no technological connection with Japan. The only technological similarity between SK and Japan is that they are western countries and try to follow NATO standards. Only look at the technology system, it is right to add SK to the United States. If you continue to insist that SK be added to Japan at this level, do you think that any country that follows NATO standards can join Japan as a subtree?
Asking to add a parasitic tree simply because current diplomatic relations are close is the same as asking to suddenly insert a parasitic tree on Germany because Ukraine has become friendly with Germany against Russia. So now North Korea can form a tree with anti-Americans in the Middle East and South America!!!
I think it would be good to just ask for it as it would cause less work for the gaijin :) There is no difference between leo2 and k2 in their connection with Japan, so it would be possible for the purpose of diversifying the same tree!
Why should vehicle from an unrelated country go because Japan’s equipment is lacking? In that case, just asking for a copy of the Russian Pantsir will reduce the gaijin’s workload. If the Korean tree’s vehicle is poor, it’s okay if it doesn’t come out.
I doubt they’ll include vehicles that require seperate radar or tracking vehicles anytime soon. Gaijin has been very insistent on self contained SPAA.
That’s the whole point of sub-trees no? A somewhat related nation gets added to an already existing tree to add more options and sure up tech tree deficiencies.
That’s the point, Type 11 requires the vehicle only for mid course correction, LOAL and target search, just like the Type 81.
The Trailer mounted system isn’t an idea to make it possible, but an idea for a seperate version of the Type 11 that is added in addition to a basic launcher at a higher BR, since it would have these abilities the launcher vehicle can’t do alone.
So I keep saying that Korea and Japan are not related… They are not related to the same level as holding FlaRakRad…
Are you crazy people? New nation, made of adversary states, one is like china but much worse, obsolete soviet era tech, other has handful of high tech toys and some of US gear?
last thing this game needs is another scuffed nation. I would even toss out israel if you asked me.
Subtree of poor japan, sure, japan has smallish techtree and introducing one line of interesting korean toys in it would be a good idea, like the south africa with GB.
Subree? Why not
New nation? Hell nah!
Combined Korea tree and Thailand subtree for Japan seems like a good option. Most sub trees start at low tier so Thailand would be a better option for Japan.
It’s a fucking video game stop being a little bitch, geopolitic this geopolitic that, if that’s the case then Israel should not exist at fucking all, it should be French subtree.
Japan tree complement is Southeast Asia subtree, that’s it.
Thailand has low tier options? That aren’t Japanese?
course not, they can try indonesia, they got a lot of Japanese and Dutch early ww2 trainer and fighters.
And in the long run Japan will see Mirage, A-4, F-5, F-15EX, Rafale, Su-27, Su-30, Hawk, and more F-16 variant.
They have Japanese options that aren’t in the tree yet, as well as others like the H-75N for example. They even have a few completely domestic aircraft, even if those would be at a very low BR.
Tanks are a similar thing, with Japanese vehicles and others as well. Some personal favorites for me here are the T17 armed with a Japanese cannon, or the Type 76 40mm SPAAG.
Naval they probably have the most unique options, like the Thonburi class that would be really interesting to see.
I’d also hope for a bunch of Thai camouflages for vehicles already in game. I’ve been wanting to fly a Thai Ki 27 for a long time, but my only option is a user skin that other players aren’t able to see. There is a nice marketplace Ki 43 III camo however, which if I remember correctly is the only instance of a foreign operator of Japanese vehicles in the tree, apart from the US test paint for the Ki 45 and G8N.
Had me in the first half king
