    • Yes
    • No
    • Too early to think of it
    • Addition of nations is not important

China joined Russia in what start to be the third world war


January 2027, China finaly joined their allies, Russia, and send a portion of their army to solve the actual conflict. The actual German president is almost sure this is not a coincidence, tension have grewed up since 2021, and China needed an occasion to show to the world their new military technology and power, showing to America how powerful they became. The president of Germany asked to Japan governement some help in the pacific, distracting China from East. Japan governement accepted, leading to one more sino-japanese war.
Taiwan, decided to help Japan by sending them some soldier. In exchange, Taiwan have to be recognized as the real China by both Japan and Germany and some lands have to be reserved to Taiwan. The new unified Korea decided to attack directly Japan to protect their long time friends from East.


(I'm not an expert for writing this case of scenario, but you probably understand how i see it :p)

"Asia Frontline" ? What do you mean ?


It's simple, really. It seems like some people here want to see more nations. As we still don't know what dev's want to put in the game, I decided to do a (probably unnecessary) thread about some Asian forces, to see if people enjoy the idea of seing those factions in game (or not), also to have some "experts" coming to me like "It should be like this, it's more realistic" to give a better picture of what is closer to reality or not, as i'm clearly not an expert. Most of things i have gathered come from websites where scrolling down is enough to discover new things. 


Why adding China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan ?


Well, first of, the only really interesting nation to add is China because of their actual military power and their weapon diversity. All other nations give more of a context, to give opportunities to have some new locations with interesting design. Any Asia army forces could be welcome, but i choose those 4 because of their actual weapon loadouts more than anything else (as i don't know if dev's will include weapons that are unused by actual army forces). Any suggestion of another nation is welcomed bellow.


Is it important at this state of the game ?


Ahahahahah. Ahahah. No. But it will probably be useful in the future. There is still a lot of things that will change in the game, and this kind of addition is pretty huge. So, we probably won't see it before the end of the early access, at least. Maybe in 2019, or 2020. I can't be sure. It's just want to expose the overall idea and see what people think about it, etc. 


About guns


Well, most of the following links will be from modern firearms, a Russian website listing a lot of weapons, even some that are not well renowned. Keep in mind that most of these guns are from China, as they produced a lot of them. I keept only fairly recent guns, released at least in the 70's, and nothing too exotic, like assault rifle combined with grenade launchers (Rip Korean K11).

K2 Black Panther (South Korea): https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/K2_Black_Panther


Soldiers equipement:


I found a encyclopedia for... Army camoflages, so i will link to them, to avoid any photo spams. This post is long enough !

China: http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=China

Japan: http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=Japan

Taiwan: http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=Taiwan

South Korea: http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=South_Korea


(I know, i did this in less than 5 minutes, but... NEXT PART)


Potential Locations:


This part is... Complicated as we can only have some exemple but not much. I can only link to some collections of pictures, not much.

China: Chengdu -> http://www.visitourchina.com/chengdu/photos.html

Japan: Senaga -> https://www.shutterstock.com/search/senaga+island

Taiwan: Tainan -> https://www.tripadvisor.fr/LocationPhotos-g293912-Tainan.html

South Korea: Daejeon -> https://www.tripadvisor.fr/LocationPhotos-g297887-Daejeon.html


Aaaaand that's pretty much all folks. I really want your toughts or some other suggestion, and please don't forget to vote ! :D

Oh also, i know there is this thread: 

But i wanted a poll and go deeper, show why i want those nations, even if i would be happy with pretty much any addition in the game.

I want Asian regions eventually, but I really think it's too early right now. World map has to be functional for starters and I think map locations should be spread out from Europe in a radius, so first new maps we should get should be within areas like Italy, France, UK, Sweden, some middle eastern maps and maybe east/west coast US. THEN after we get those, devs should consider adding ASEAN regions and Asia in general.

I'd personally really like some maps set in Taiwan/Shanghai/Tokyo and other Japanese cities. Akihabara has a lot of potential to be a cool map.

If they add new factions, China and USA should be the first they add, so yeah I am totally with you

we will need an asian and african/middle east theater of operations sooner or later. europe is becoming too simple and too obvious for most video games.
