  1. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    Agreed, especially since he's gotten along just fine with Count Terauchi.
  2. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    ...could they call it the Yamato Cannon ITTL? ;) ;) ;)
  3. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    So...if the Germans called theirs Schwerer Gustav, what do the Japanese call theirs?
  4. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    Come to think of it, how are Japan's relations with regard to Ethiopia? IOTL, even their budding alliance with Italy and Germany, the former's invasion and annexation of Ethiopia caused quite a stink in Japan.
  5. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    @WaterproofPotatoes Is Yamato still seen as a 'hotel' ITTL? Or are accommodation on all Japanese ships already better than OTL that Yamato's up to Western standards accommodations aren't a source of resentment from crews of other ships? I get the feeling the Mongolians will be showing the...
  6. Post WW1 German Empire. Monarchy never abolished

    Speaking of Italy, there's one avenue the Germans might try to play the colonial game again, by funding oil exploration and development in Libya.
  7. Post WW1 German Empire. Monarchy never abolished

    Britain's enmity to Germany was based on their competition on the colonial stage, and the threatening size of the German Navy. A revived German colonial empire would be a non-starter...though I don't think the Germans would even try. WWI showed them that they couldn't defend their colonies, and...
  8. Post WW1 German Empire. Monarchy never abolished

    It would butterfly the Nazis, but not necessarily German expansion and rearmament. That said, Germany might be right-wing, but it won't be as hellishly evil as the Nazis turned it into. Their territorial ambitions would be less, for one thing. They'd still probably remilitarize the Rhineland...
  9. Five Years Less - Brezhnev dies in 1977

    This is true. I'm already LMAO just imagining jihadists cheering again and again as they destroy T-72s and T-90s one after the other... ...except they just keep on coming. And then the jihadists run out of rockets, and there's still a full armored corps bearing down on them. Or they run to...
  10. Five Years Less - Brezhnev dies in 1977

    ...so he picks a fight with not one, but two superpowers? Oh, and the second of those superpowers is historically proven to be able and willing to pay a Human cost running into tens of millions to completely and utterly crush an enemy?
  11. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    I imagine the Jewish-American community is a particularly supportive element for détente and more between the USA and Japan.
  12. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    Somehow, I get the feeling once Israel is up and running ITTL, they'll be importing a lot of modern equipment from Japan and Manchukuo. Tanks, fighter jets, munitions, etc...while there'll be plenty of cross-country training and exercises, i.e. Israeli naval and air force officers spending time...
  13. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    Apparently there will be in Manchukuo, with the Harbin Synagogue being a major landmark and historical site for decades to come. Speaking of treating Jews better, it's apparently a historical case of debts owed, both literally and figuratively. A Jewish-American banker, Jacob Schiff...
  14. The Co-Prosperity Sphere

    Actually, I think he'd be torn. The man's ego would be really stroked by these developments.
  15. Five Years Less - Brezhnev dies in 1977

    ...gee, I wonder what the Muscovites are thinking about that loon in Bucharest?
  16. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    IIRC, based on snippets from the future, China will be divided into at least five countries. There's Japan's puppets Manchukuo and Mengjiang. Japan also keeps the Qingdao Leased Territory, which now runs from the city of the same name up the coast towards and including the Liaodong Peninsula in...
  17. The Sun, The Stars and The Sickle: Alt-WWII and a Tripolar Postwar World

    I'm actually hoping those guys make it to their destination safely. I mean, not just because they're the good guys, but also because the crew are such a comic bunch. It's a waste to society if they all get torpedoed and beaned :P
  18. The Co-Prosperity Sphere

    I like the first one the best. And sorry if I offended you, rest assured, it was not intentional.
  19. The Co-Prosperity Sphere

    Why not just use the one from the Man in the High Castle?
  20. The Co-Prosperity Sphere

    Let the saints sing! Let the church bells sound! Russia is reborn!
