Unfortunately I didn't think to take tech screenshots. However, I did take one that shows the economy and armed forces which I'll show in chapter 11. My original plan was to show the research right before I made my grand entrance onto the global stage. For now, all of my infantry techs for mountain and regulars are up to date, as is my engineer river bridging tech. My land doctrines are up to date and my artillery at this point was around 1938 levels I think. Industry is far worse and aside from education is at 1932 levels or lower. I think I started researching single-engine aircraft after I took Beijing, but I don't remember. When you only have 6 LS points you need to really focus on one area if you're going to excel, and I had 6 points up until I took over the northern area, which brought me up to 11 points (8 from Regional Power law, 3 from education tech) and really allowed me to start branching out. To reach Regional Power requires at least 100 brigades and 30 IC, so you guys now know I have at least that much at this point.
I can't reach the next level of International Status without 5 total aircraft and 100 IC, and the jump between Regional (8 LS) and major (15 LS) is a huge bonus. I've already hit Regional status, but need to unify all of China to reach 100 IC and get 5 air wings to become a Major. As a comparison, Italy is the biggest Regional power in the game and isn't a major. To reach major status I think Italy needs to build or capture about 15 IC to reach the 100 IC mark.
