I already know that the united Korean Ground Forces TT went to developer proposal a few years ago
However, a lot of time has passed since then and the proposal is outdated and insufficiently detailed, and needs to be updated with new content
As a Korean, I’ve been very disappointed to see comments like “Korea should be a Japanese subtree”, “North Korea should be a Chinese subtree”, and “Korean tree lacks vehicles” in this community.
They argue that Korea is geographically close to Japan and that the Japanese TT’s vehicles are lacking in numbers so they should be filled with Korean vehicles.
They argue that we should think about the balance of the game more than political reasons, but this doesn’t make sense.
Having the Korean TT as a subtree of the Japanese tree would omit a lot of Korean vehicles that could be in the game, and would destroy the possibility of a complete TT.
Germany already has West and East Germany together, and so does China.
Why would they want to relegate only Korea to one subtree, excluding North Korea?
Also, if a lot of Korean vehicles are added to the Japanese TT, it will be the Korean TT, not the Japanese TT.
That’s why the Korean subtree is not welcomed by the Japanese Warthunder community either.
I love Japan and currently enjoy the Japanese TT the most in the game.
As a Japanese TT player myself, I would like to see more Japanese vehicles (Type 81 TAN-SAM, MMPM, Type 89 IFV prototype, Type 90 MBT prototype, Type 60 SPRG-quad, M24(ATM), Type 16(30mm), etc…)
The gaps in the Japanese TT should be filled with Japanese vehicles, not with vehicles from other countries that have no technical relevance.
So with this post, I hope to not only renew the topic that has already been proposed, but also to explain to many people what kind of vehicles could be in the united Korean TT
I’m writing this in this thread because there’s a rule in the suggestions thread that you can’t rewrite the topic that’s already been suggested.
