Japan by diogonen Japan by diogonen
It's Japan from Hetalia this time! The gun is current standard issue rifle of the JSDF, a Howa Type 89. The camo is a newly developed (2008) desert camouflage pattern issued to the JASDF (Japanese Air Self-Defense Force) serving in Iraq. Again, feel free to correct anything!

Thinking about doing a series with this modern military theme; here's germany: [link]
Do you guys think I should?

Ooh yes I've been interested in the Rangers, and America just really seems to fit flying eh? But I've still got to do a bunch of research.

That's really cool!

But Japan doesn't have a military, I thought. That's why he and the US are such good friends....

But I still love it! Curse my annoying knowledge

No no, you're right! Under their constitution, they can not use military force for offense, but have quite a powerful self-defense force.

I'm glad you do :D

SO an American uniform... Because he falls under the protection of the United States as of WWII. Is that what you did?

Well it's a bit complicated I think. After the U.S. occupation of Japan after WWII, even though the constitution stated they will never have land, air, or sea forces, they almost immediately established the Jieitai (Japanese self-defense forces). This includes the Japan Ground Self-defense Forces, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces, and the Japan Aie Self-Defense Forces. Their technology is I think perhaps the most advanced? I'm not sure... And their military expenditure is one of the top ten. So they develop and manufacture their own equipment like the camo uniform, and right now, they can only deploy Jieitai for non-combat, like aiding in Iraq.

Ah, that does make sense. So this is the Jieitai uniform then? I must say, you've done your research on this project :D
Most advanced technology and high military expenditure, for self defense. Wow.

Yep, and that's what I thought too; wow they love their technically non-existant military XD

I know, right? It's justified, I mean, no country should be without self-defense, but wow.

True, It's pretty unfair that they can't ever have a military under the current constitution...
