The concept is to provide air-mobile infantry with the firepower to engage Tripods with minimal supports.
I had intended this as my "Japanese" infantry troops, but Japan has already been accounted for.
The Japanese fought with French livery in the Boxer Rebellion and WWI (They added their own features.) I would use Old Glory WWI French (ribbet) for the Koreans. The French had a lot of influence in Korea and Indochina.
Yes Scott, there's an excellent line of Old Glory Boxer Rebellion figures at a very reasonable price - packaged for Osprey's "Men Who Would Be King" rules. The only figure they don't seem to have is one for the British Chinese regiment, picture in the rules on one of the plates. Cool looking uniform.
Yes indeed, France in particular shaped a most of the Korea & Indochina region until the 1950s.
