Forgive me for being slightly OT but do you know why the Chinese are less popular a WWII subject among those with an interest in WWII?    They lost around 20 million people during WWII. Their combat related deaths only surpassed by Germany and Russia.  One would think those kinds of losses would at least bring them infamy but surprisingly little seems to be mentioned of them during WWII in regards to most publications on the subject.
The reason can be found in one of the diary's of a Japanese soldier who fought in China
"For every soldier they shot we shot 10 more"
"There was no resistance serious enought to form a thread"

It depends on which Chinese units and which battles, I think there were battles which the Japanese were defeated with high casualties... Man, what do you expect from the Chinese, which many are only equipped with melee weapons?
So the rifleman get's only a kinfe on team china that's kind of boring.,,,,

Perhaps a three way battle between Nationalists, Communists, and the Japanese.

not likely. all chinese people no matter what political party fuaght together against the japanese. if you did do a chinese theatre of conflict i would like the see the flying tigers and their fight against the japs.

Don't worry, it is much better than a knife, at least much longer range for the Da Dao, I suppose if the Chinese front ever come you'll be able to pick up Japanese weapons.

Agreed 100%. To be perfectly honest, I feel the Chinese desperately need to be portrayed in a game (I don't necessarily mean FH here, which obviously the team is doing much as it is, but I mean any FPS WW2 shooter!) far more (especially given that they haven't been portrayed at all) than virtually every Allied country outside the Big Three; it's not for no reason that they were referred to as the Fourth Policeman. It's amazing how in virtually every period Allied propaganda China is emphasized everywhere as not only a major Allied power, but THE major Allied power outside the Big Three, yet today their contribution has been all but completely forgotten in the west.

Hey Skywind, that is nice compilation of Chinese front battles. While best part is research of battles, dev and betatester team is quite small and all of FH2 content is made in free time and as hoby. If you have some free time, group of friends to work together and will to make content, you could learn mapping or modeling wepons, sounds, etc. It is nice opportunity to learn some skills that can be used in work, freelance etc. Hop on Discord to chat with people that also love to discuss FH2, potential battles that could be represented in-game and help if you decide do some modding!  ;)
