Hello fellows!

 

I want to suggest to add Japanese tank decals for our new beloved friends on tracks.

 

One really important is the Rising Sun flag, which can be found on early Japanese tanks:

Further I would love to see some Kanji on the tanks:

No tank is complete without a tactical number:

At the end a few unit insignias would be really nice, like those:

Thank you very much in advance for your support! :004_2:

Yes that's a captured Stuart Tank, but look closing at the side, I can't tell what type of markings.

I would also like to  also see Japanese tanker helmets and the regular standard Japanese army helmets in the decoration choices.

The researchable US star-spangled banner has only 48 stars, unlike the purchasable and current star-spangled banner with 50 stars. Hinomaru (japanese flag) didn't change since 1870, so no need to copy-paste the already available flag ingame (like it didn't happen to Union Jack after introduction of british tanks, because the flag back then wasn't different to the current one). Rising sun flag is different though, should be in game.

Bit of an overlap here, a lot of the "kanji" section are unit insignia and tactical markings.

My favourites would be the   marking of the tank school in Manchukuo and the emblem of the 5th Independent Engineer Regiment (although I won't take my chances with the mods and post it), but I'll support any and all of the historical decals.

Oh, and a 突撃! decal is a no-brainer, but we'll have to get the maximum decal size raised back up to use it properly.

Why is that?

 

The regiment was equipped with the Soko Sagyo engineering tank - commonly abbreviated to "SS" - and, as the emblem was for the side of those tanks, they decided to use that abbreviation for their emblem.  To make it more geometrical and insignia-y, they made the S shape very angular and stylised, then arranged them in a rather striking cruciform pattern, in black in the middle of a white roundel so it stood out against the camouflage.

Oh, I see. That's always a hot topic :D

Hi! I would like to discuss something that I noticed when Japanese Ground Forces entered the game, and thus make a suggestion to fix it.  

 

First off, let me just express that I'm very happy that Japanese tanks were introduced to Warthunder.  I remember a year or two back that Gaijin explained they probably weren't going to implement them, and they did! That being said, I noticed something off about these Japanese tanks that no other trees have.  Japanese tanks do not have their historic roundel for their tanks.  In fact, the Japanese never even used roundels for their tanks like almost every other country has.  Instead, they used their Japanese flag.

 

Notice in all of these pictures below, every single Japanese tank has their historic flag printed on them.

Sadly, this rising sun flag isn't in-game, and thus I can't make my tank look historical as I want it to. Further, the only flag you can buy for your vehicle is the modern "Japan" one for 500 golden eagles.

 

My suggestion is to add this flag in the "Japan" or "Axis tanks" section of the Warthunder decal shop for 200 GE.  Thank you! :)
