Default Japanese Infantry Companies

So in the editor we have Japanese Infantry companies A-H, what does the A-H represent? Is there a reference someplace in the guide on how Japanese Infantry companies were used (A-H)?

Or is there an historical document where I can understand it a bit better?

No idea. They are variations on company structure used by the Japanese constructed by the three people named in the info line of the OOB with, I was told 2 decades ago, that Taki had a big part in setting up the unit/ formation structures.......

game guide



OB rewritten by Zoltán "Kazan" Zajonskovsky for version 4.0. with special thanks to Akira Takizawa (Taki).

no idea if that was the case or there was a lot of conflicting info ( likely ) and that's why there are so many different Coy structures. I have not touched it and I'm happy with it as it is. Pick whatever one suits your purpose and don't obsess about which one is "correct" becasue they are all likely as accurate as they can be within the game OOB framework

I seem to recall seeing these in the "handbook of the Japanese Army" - a series of books in the 80s(?) which were based on intelligence pamphlets the USA produced in WW2. They had multitudes of battalion types, brigade types, etc (Bns with 4 coys, 3 coys, coys with 3 and 4 platoons, an assortment of support assets (some bns with 4 70mm guns, some only 2)).

In other words, just as horrible a mish-mash selection of "official" TO&Es as the Jerries had, just in a smaller army.

And then the Japanese Navy had its own army as well. And land air and bombers, tanks etc. and the army ran their own supply convoys separately from the navy ones. Japanese inter-service rivalry was intense, to put it mildly.

This site came up on a google, and seems to have the same sort of info as the previously mentioned guidebook:
http://www.1jma.dk/articles/1jmaIJAc2.htm

No idea if it matches what we have - but we did have input from a Japanese history buff in the early days, who had his own website (Takai?). Plus a couple of the OOB team we had in the early days were into the Japan-China stuff.
