Everybody had them, but the Japanese also did not have the combat pilots the Germans, Brits, and French did. No Red Baron or Rickenbacher to find as the Chinese were not the enemy at the time, Korea was conquered, the US and Japan were at peace, and the German Far East Army did not have planes worth anything. I could supply names of pilots that died in droves after a couple of weeks, but if you're looking for accuracy these guys never lived long enough to be higher than the Japanese version of Major or Lt. Commander depending on service and most were 2nd Lts. and most would have to be killed weekly after being in the game in accidents. Maybe putting together a generic name list might work an Ito Kurita or JiroAllenby said:I doubt that the Japanese were alone in suffering a high attrition rate during the development of their air service. Sometimes it can be difficult finding how many of these leaders died prematurely because they are often so obscure, so I expect that a great many of the air leaders in the mod are inaccurately portrayed in some respect.
I have added Tsukada and Yashuda. Tokugawa was already in.
Also came up with a couple of general and minister names for Korea.
F.J.H. Nienstead, served as chief military advisor to the Korean monarchy from 1899 to 1905. Trained and designed the Korean Army until the defeat and puppeting of Korea by the Japanese in 1905. Forced to leave Korea under the Taft-Katsura Agreement. "Retired" American military officer and member of American missionary group. Probably skill level 2 or 3, maybe logistics wizard or defensive doctrine as special traits. Supported Artillery as future of warfare and defensive strategy including trenches and forts to slow down enemy troops.
Charles William LeGendre, served as chief military advisor to Korean monarchy until death in 1899. Old School type, American Civil War Hero. Probably skill level 2 with old guard trait. Still believed in large upfront battles: line against line fighting and cavalry charges. Also member of American missionary group.
I can't think of the Schools of Military Thought right now so hopefully you can decide what they should be by the brief description I gave of their ideas.
