October of 1937 in Shanghai

Saw the movie on a recent flight TMP link

A little background on it – link

Enjoyed the film – but was surprised when I saw Chinese Troops outfitted with German equipment (524th Regiment of the 88th Division – Trained and equipped by Germans) possible Order of Battle – link

Question is – Do you have any Chinese Troops outfitted with German Equipment?

A – Yes
B – No
C – No but plan to

Not so far but tempted – my Warlord era Chinese are mostly Copplestone

Of course. There was a fair amount of German equipment in China.

They were used recently in a skirmish game in part of Shanghai.

thumbs up

And yes, the Chinese did have a lot of German equipment they bought from Germany, before WWII.

Way back in high school one kid argued with me that the Japanese were using German equipment (his 'proof' was a propaganda poster showing Japanese troops in German stahlhelms.) I told him that if the Germans had shipped the Japanese any such helmets, the Japanese would have melted them down for the steel… LOL
