On a side note, in the event that the ROC does get added into the game,

A way (probably the best, most accurate and logical way) of differentiating it from the current "China" in the game is to rename the current "China" and associated tags (flags, faction etc) to PRC, so the Republic of China can use the correct and official ROC abbreviation as a tag instead of the more intuitive but controversial, politically, historically and officially incorrect "TW".

Reasons for it being incorrect is due to the political climate and stance of the ROC on Taiwan until the 1990s (especially in the period of 1949 - 1980) was exclusively of the ROC being the legitimate China, instead of the split political identity (Are we Free China or are we our own country) of the late 1980s - today.

An example would be the two Koreas, in-game neither side is tagged as just "KOR", but with their own respective appropriate (NK, ROK) tags.

I included some non-self propelled systems and such since certain systems could reasonably be motorized, some can plausibly be motorized and I really am unsure if actual mounted versions exist or not for some of these (T-82 AA gun etc.)

Just trying to keep all plausible options all on the table!

Pretty sweet stuff! Before, I thought of ROC as unviable, because of next-to-no tanks whatsoever. While that remains true (I see no tanks worthy more than 50 pts), the rest of the stuff seems more than fun.

This could have been an injection of fun that would have made Blue Dragons actually good. Heck, great even.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

Wouldn't the ROC being in game lead to the game being banned in China (PRC)?

Probably, assuming it wasn't even banned already, but actually if it was included in-game as the ROC it probably wouldn't be as likely to be as banned than if you included it as "TW".

Funny politics in action, Chicom is more comfortable with the ROC/Taiwan being acknowledged as Republic of China than as a separate "Taiwan" state.

All in all it's kinda pointless to bother with the censors imo (though I know it's about the $), due to how easy they're triggered anyway

The censors are probably already triggered by the Bear VS Dragon campaign, potential "loss" against the JSDF, USA etc...

Added some boats, WW2-era DD fans rejoice!

More detailed information on armaments and such will be added soon.
