At the very first, West Germany had about the same restrictions as Japan had after World War 2. There was (or still is) in article in the constitution which says, that Germany´s Army may only act in case of defence. So this makes not much sense. There would have to be some sort of attack on Germany. But there are/were no German colonies, close allies (like the US and Japan) or special interests in Asia. So it´s kind of doubtful that there will be a realistic reason to include Germany in the Campaigns, but I am sure Eugen will make something interessting up
Yes, but then again UK/France don't have much reason to be in either. Although they had small colonies, none of those were going to hold enough troops to fight a full fledged war in Asia. Forget about top of the line armor divisions with Leclerc and Challenger II!
From that respect W. Germany is rather ok.
