One of the greatest regional armies of Yu Jing is the Japanese Sectorial Army. As the Japanese have always shown a clearly distinct cultural identity, the High Command, with the Party’s consent, thought it was opportune to reward Nipponese troops for the courage shown in their military service.
In this way they were given the ability to form a small army composed entirely of troops and units of Nipponese origin. Such army would have its own officers, all of them Japanese, who could establish their own operative methodology and their own combat style, remaining always loyal to the military precepts established by Yu Jing’s High Command.
The Japanese Sectorial Army has a strong offensive focus, reflecting the brave and combative nature of the troops composing it. The Nipponese warlike philosophy is strongly influenced by Bushido, the Path of the Warrior. The noncommissioned instructional officers have stamped into the head of each recruit the lessons taken from old Japanese military texts. Concepts like courage, duty (giri 義理), the will to win and the importance of an aggressive attitude receive special emphasis, and provide a subconscious motivation for the troops of the Rising Sun.
