What about a Scenario like the Boxer uprising? You own a small area in China, held by joint forces consisting of paratroopers and you have to hold the area against Chinese forces until reinforcements arrive
That'll be cool
Isn't that basically the premise of the "Pearl of the Orient" campaign ? If they are only 6 of them, there would be more variations i expect.
Germany : unfortunately, W-Germany might not even be in the campaigns. I expect the campaigns to focus on the five new nations + Pacific rim (USSR, US, Canada maybe) and Hong-Kong. Maybe France might play a peripheral role, but limited to something like one reinforcement marine battle group as an option for one campaign.
Unless there is a WWIII in the pacific, general brawl, no brakes campaign.
I think it was confirmed that all nations, which will directly be brought up to 1990s standards will be part of the campaign
But it does not answer the question why German paras would be there... certainly not to reclaim Tsingtau, which was lost to the Japanese anyway.
But indeed I often think of the 8-Nations-Alliance since RD was announced. However, when it comes to the defense of embassies, that is a BGS-task. And that one does get a new unit.
Well, you have to look at it that way: German embassy means German ground. The Bundeswehr must not defend the German embassy because it is not allowed for them unless the defense case is called out. The BGS/Bundespolizei was/is responsible for the embassies. But if China/NK would attack the embassies, they would attack their respective countries. The US embassy would be defended by USMC troops, I think GB and France also let the military defend their embassies. And if those countries will be attacked, the Bundeswehr is allowed to work on German soil meaning the embassy.
Nevertheless I fear it would be to small scalled
EDIT: I think I expressed myself quiet ... confusing for the most people
tl;dr: Bundeswehr is only allowed to fight on German soil if Germany is under attack. In peace the BGS guards the embassy. If the embassy is attacked, Germany is attacked and the Bundeswehr is allowed to defend the embassy
