Default Will Japanese soldiers fight to the end?

Will Japanese soldiers in WinSPWW2 have special morale check? I mean if they are hard to retreat or route even in high suppression, and wil do the "Banzai Charge" in the rain of bullets if I order them to.

As far as I am aware, Japanese are affected by suppression the same way as everyone else.

However, they usually tend to have high morale scores.

Japanese simply do not surrender. That is the main difference.

Japanese have a bonus in hand to hand combat at range 0 with other infantry.

Japanese infantry elements do follow the normal dispersal rules, but have high morale and experience, so remnants may linger. I think in earlier versions of the game, you had to always eliminate every last man?.

Japanese tend not to "bug out" from a failed armour assault (lower tank panic).

Other than that, they are normally affected by suppression and so on.

JIA are very hard to to take on.

They have been trained where defeat is not an option.

Then they are battle hardened by the Sino-Japanese Wars in the early and mid 30's.

They do get suppressed, but recover quickly.

I consider every Japanese unit will fight to the last man,and pour on the fire,even it's just 1 man left.

BTW, a tip,,get 2-3 JIA units "not supressed" within a Hex or 2 of the enemy and then assualt,
Will simulate a "banzai charge" and routing of opposing infty will likely
happen.

I rarely play scenarios in the pacific theatre because fighting the japanese is extremely frustrating at times. Often it comes down to endless slugfests with little in the way of maneuvre.

So it is very difficult to begin a long campaign with the U.S. in the Pacific and in 1942 or early 1943. Be very power of fire with machine guns and artillery. You have to take care of the infantry to get experience. Avoid close fights.
Do not despair if the first battles were defeats or draws. The important thing is to keep men.

Pretty realistic I would say. Otherwise you can try as the soviets in the chinese theatre.

Look at the AAR I'm doing on a long U.S. campaign. We see the strength of the Japanese and the inexperience of the Americans in the first years of war.
And you will see how bad I am as a commander

Been awhile since I've played against the Japanese. But when I did in the past, I found it almost impossible to get them out of a hex. Short of wiping them out to a man.

......which is why the battles in the Pacific were so nasty and why so few Japanese soldiers even tried to surrender and if we'd left them like every other nation that would have been pointed out right from the beginning. The SS doesn't surrender easily either.
