IJA flag

The IJA's flag

The Imperial Japanese Army (Japanese: 大日本帝國陸軍 Dai-Nippon Teikoku Rikugun) was a component of the Empire of Japan's military which consisted of ground and air forces which conducted land-based operations. It participated in a number of wars, such as the First and Second Sino-Japanese wars, the Boxer Rebellion, the Russo-Japanese war, World War I and World War II.

In its early days, the IJA took inspiration from Western armies, and invested in the purchase of foreign technology and equipment. The IJA mostly saw a rise during the reign of Emperor Shōwa (known outside of Japan as Hirohito), whose policies were often centered around Japan's military power.

During the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Second World War, the IJA participated in the invasion of China and of Pacific and South-East Asian territories, subsequently building bases and being mostly on the defensive in the latter half of the war.

After the surrender of Japan in September 1945, the Imperial Army was dissolved during the American occupation. Since 1952, Japan maintains the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, the "successor" of the IJA.

Kits and Weapons[]

The faction uses mostly the same weapons as the corresponding faction in Battlefield 1942. However, some differences are notable: the Type 5 is available to the Assault and Heavy Assault as optional primaries and remains the standard rifle for Engineers. In addition, the IJN also gets Mortars from the base game and the new Type 100 Flame Thrower, and the Mp 40 replaces the MP 18.
