Thanks for the comments guys! It is a nice kit to wear though I think the sizes are off slightly. My Hiki Russian kit is in size large but is a little big for me while this Japanese large uniform is a bit snug. Ah well, it'll do. Need to figure out the puttees now.
Regards,

Ralph

Nice one Granger, my IJA kit feels a bit Spartan now!

Hopefully too many missions won't involve the use of spades as the jap one is a PITA to tie on the back pack. One of the main reasons for me getting the backpack was so I can shove lots of foliage in it and combined with the helmet should make me look like a talking bush.

Yeah, I'm keen on the angry shrub look :) Japanese personal camouflage was pretty impressive and I'd like to imitate it, particularly if it means getting shot less :whistle: Puttees are also handy for stuffing lumps of foliage in!

Yeah there's some impressive pictures of Japanese camouflage floating around. Not sure what the terrain is like at fireball but I plan to get there early so I can camo up with a nice mixture of leaves and grass.

Another plus side is if the Americans can't see us, they'll soon get bored and start shooting each other. They like a bit of blue on blue action :rofl:

I've been lucky so far in that I haven't had any trouble like that. At least it got through in the end. How many shots can you get out of that? Will be nice for the banzai charges

Ralph
