If memory serves correctly, the second OVA is supposed to be released today. I'm rather excited to see what it'll be like

If their chests get too large they won't be able to get into their tanks.

Memeic level stuff requires the response: "Panzer vor means 'panzer vor' in Russian".

Even a porn star would take up less room in a tank than a full size Russian in winter gear.

This is not a fault of industrial capacity, this is the fault of military planners. Japanese naval commanders remarked on numerous occasions that the A6M Zero proved to be so successful in the initial stages of the war that they never considered a replacement until it was too late.

Just a question, when Army of Japan fact strong Army such as Soviet or US on land? Most of time they engage poor armed like Chinese, Mongolia, Viet Minh v.v... and little French troops in East Sea Peninsula. While most of time they fighitng US, UK on the ocean, thus most of their IC was spend to navy and air force, the amry also has many plans to upgrades their equipment, but only at low piority. Result, when they begin engage US army on island, Soviet on continents, it is too late for upgrade their army since their navy, air force were defeated and Japan's mainland is bombardment.

Japan actually engaged Soviet forces as early as 1932, which eventually accumulated to infamous battles such as the Nomonhan Incident. Unfortunate for Japan, the Soviet commander at the time of the incident was none other than Zhukov himself. Even though Japan secured a peace negotiation not in their favor, the end to the border conflict proved to be a mixed blessing. After all, Japan would be free of Soviet harassment until 1945. Unfortunately, its unknown how much Japan actually learned from these border conflicts.

OTOH, though the overall quality of the Chinese army was poor, its German trained divisions equipped with German gear proved to be very capable. As a result, the Japanese Army eventually came up with the Type 99 Arisaka for its infantry, which was a local variant of the Mauser that chambered the 7.7×58mm as opposed to the 7.92×57mm.

Another curiosity to note is the fact that none of Japan's machine guns were belt fed. They either rely on magazines, strips, clips and rarely, drums. Even though some are more than capable of being belt-fed. The reason for this is more of a psychological factor than others.

Did the Germans supply the Chinese with any Panzer Is and IIs? Because that would be fun. Panzer I and IIs verse Type 89 and Type 97s.

Everybody's gotta pitch in for the Motherland. Even if that means Stalin has to be a pony.

(That was a hella awkward statement.)

The Far East Front of Soviet at 1932 don't has any tanks such as T-34, KVs or IS. Some divisions were trained by German are not enough for become a real threat to miliion man strenght of Kwangtung Army, thus Army plans are set at low piority behind the air force and navy for Pacific war with US Because don't has enough Industrial Capacity to cover all like US.

BTW, I found Japan had a bel-fed machine gun, Type 3 Machinegun is based on M2 Browning.

You don't need the T-34, KVs or IS to prove Soviet armor superiority. The existing Japanese armor, such as the Type 89 and anti-tank weapons had already proven in the incident to be completely inferior to the Soviet BT-series tanks.

Although I was not talking about the existence of Japanese heavy industry at the time, I was talking about small-arms.

Enough of a threat for Japan to maintain more than half of their total army manpower in China. What people seldom recall is the fact that approximately half of Japan's total army casualties occurred in China.

That is unfortunately incorrect. The Type 3 Machine-gun was designed and produced in 1914. Itself based on the Hotchkiss M1914 from France, which took a strip. The M2 Browning was not in service until 1933.
