This is after seeing a thread from a certain forum:

Most knowledgeable people about Militarist Japan would say that there was no way Japan will be able to join in the invasion of the Soviet Union and avoid being slaughtered. There are various reasons for this, most steaming from the lack of oil and the general inferiority of weapons.

Yet, I believe it was possible for Japan to have done better than what most AH people believe. It stems from the report written after Nomonhan which basically nails down all the main problems of the IJA and recommendations of how to solve the deficiencies.

I'll be posting about this report later this week. I hope it will start some engaging discussions.
