Empire of the Blazing Sun

With its relatively small size and widely scattered possessions, the Blazing Sun military is one of the few to operate with a true combined-arms structure. The empire’s military is split into three major organisations – the Shield, which defends the Blazing Sun’s existing holdings; the Sword, which constitutes the empire’s prime offensive power; and the Crucible, a balanced and flexible force that provides both replacement troops and fighting reserves to the other two forces, while being fully capable of engaging in independent action if necessary.

Although their ratio of different assets may vary, Blazing Sun divisions include all manner of forces and equipment, from infantry companies all the way up to mighty Land Ships and Mobile Airfields. Moreover, each division has its own organic air support and a battle fleet to transport it anywhere within the empire and beyond.

Blazing Sun infantry, known collectively as Ashigaru, fight mainly as aggressive, fast moving formations. However, the hard core of these formations, who also provide garrison troops from Blazing Sun war engines, are the Rocket Assault troops. These modern Samurai eschew the use of firearms altogether, favouring a combination of swords and potent poison gas grenades adopted from the Koreans, to do their deadly work.

Blazing Sun land forces use highly unconventional equipment thanks to the adverse terrain in which they must often fight. Their land ships take the form of huge heavy walkers capable of traversing terrain that would defeat conventional machines. Backed up by tough and versatile tanks and smaller walkers, all armed with turrets of devastating strength they are a force to be reckoned with, especially in tight terrain.
