Change default Jpanese AT Gunner's mine

“anti tank impact mine Ni-05” is not realistc as for default(WW2 entire period). This is like VG-1 on Germany.
There is no record of planned production before 1945.5.10¹. IJA reported that it’s effective², but such report is “1945.3.29”(battle of Philippines 1.16~).

You should implement these instead: “Type 99 Armor-Penetration Land Mine”(99式破甲爆雷)/“Type 3 Conical Antitank Hand Grenade”(3式手投爆雷)/and other

I’m Japanese, and I know that kamikaze is treated as a symbol in other countries, but to be honest, I’m annoyed that it’s the general one.


I forgot, damn Ni-05 needs to be removed from the icon. Please respect Japanese people instead of BF5.

I wasn’t expecting anything, but I hope they at least rewrite the unit badges.
Ni-05 is nothing to be proud of. Whoever wants to make a suicide weapon a unit badge?

In the first place, why they keep use very strange weird name?
What’s the “Ni-05” lol


Since the official name of the Japanese improvised explosive device is unknown, Ni-XX appears to be a provisional code name given to it by Western intelligence agencies and military researchers. Well, yeah, it’s not historically accurate.

  • Friction-Fuze Land Mine Ni 01
  • Pressure and Traction Land Mine Ni 02
  • Improvised Land Mine Ni 03
  • Hemispherical Antitank Land Mine Ni 04
  • Lunge Mine Ni 05

As for “lunge mine”, this designation seems to be correct in English, since the document containing the Japanese designation was translated by US intelligence.

Thank you for information (and sorry for extremely delay of reply)

In Japanese military documents, it is called “刺突爆雷” as US intelligence you shows, too.

In many case, such type of weapons did not have year destination like weapons mass-produced in arsenal.
I hope one day they fix name of it.
