Playable Sides: Japan, Russia

Since the end of WW2 Japan have in several occasions raised reclamations about its rights on the Sakhalin Island and the Kurils.

Despite some late agreements some incidents have arose the heat in the area. A couple of Japanese fighters were shot down by Russian MiGs by ‘error’ during a Russian air exercise in the Kuril Islands.

Russia insists the Japanese fighters were flying too close to their exercise exclusion zone, and more important they were over Russian air space. Japan does not agree with this view and the incident is now in the UN Security Council.

Japan knows Russia will veto any resolution against its interests… the Japanese Government with a broad public opinion support decides to press forward and break diplomatic relations with Russia.

Japanese Self-Defense Forces are given new ROE against Russian forces: a non-declared state of war is in effect.
