Far East War
Far East War is a 2013 modification developed by fans of the game for the RTS game Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, created by many skillful modders with a lot of historical knowledge, coming from different countries and regions. The theme of this mod is the war between China and Japan from 1937 to 1945, also known as the Second Sino-Japanese War, in which the player can command the National Revolutionary Army (NRA) or Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) in battle. The dev team studied many historical records about the NRA and the IJA. In the Far East War mod, uniforms, weapons, equipment, camouflage, the camouflage paints on vehicles, and even the rank of each soldier, were made as historically accurate as possible.
