>>54049937 I mean SK army is much better right now but in case of war Japan would quickly catch up, larger population, larger economy, larger industry, Japan has even capabilities to develop nuclear weapons relatively quickly.
>>54050882 >why do koreans hate japanese some do some don't give a shit. the army and navy hate japanese because of forced concritions during ww2 most of these recruits could never write back home and many recruits had shitty jobs (Example : prison guard, military policemen and other low end jobs)
also many korean woman where taken by officers who wanted some company (mostly navy men)
Also japanese males looked down on korean men alot both civilian and army.
>>54050882 My grandpa told me life during the colonial era was n't so bad before the commies fucked us. In reality, chinks are the ones that have the right to be pissed. >Japs helped modernize and even gave education to our people >But for chinks, all they got was death.
Realistically speaking, assuming no other power in any way interferes in the country, here's the situation:
Japan has a powerful navy, South Korea has a grand army. South Korea's navy is notably weaker than the Japanese, and the Japanese army is notably weaker than the South Korean. Both have an airforce roughly of the same quantity and quality. I must admit, South Korea has a bit more total aircraft than Japan. In short, we have:
Navy: +++++ Army: ++ Air force: +++
Army: +++++ Navy: ++ Airforce: ++++
That being said, and given the geography of the region, the first stage of war would be Japan defeating Korea's navy to the point Korea has not a single ship. JSDF would take plenty of casualities, for every 10 South Korean sailors, some 2 or Japanese, but in the end Japan's navy would position itself along the coast of South Korea and bombard positions as far some 100km into the mainland. This would weaken Korea. Not to mention, Korea would esentially be blocked from trading, because of North Korea, to the north, and no where to go with Japan's navy blocking the country.
I don't know about South Korea's land based anti ship missiles but if they have a relevant AShM stock they could make a lot of casualities to Japan.
Japan has no relevant marine force capabilities, and even if they did, they'd only be able to invade South Korea from up to 3 or 4 different points. Not to mention that, at any sight of Japanese troops, South Korean artillery and K1s would crush the Japs. So that would end up in a stalemate until South Korea crushes from the naval blockade by South Korea or attemps to invade the North, earning a border with China. Things get complicated from here. Japan could bribe China to shut its borders for trade with Korea, China could do that voluntarily as a payback of what they did to the Norks, or just to dispose a rival and earn Japanese trust. But if they don't shut their borders, South Korea would still breathe
But in a scenario where world nations are taken into account, things are completely different. There are many possibilities involved. The US would order they troops in Japan to stay on full alert, maybe send them back home, to later start an invasion. North Korea could well use this whole thing as an opportunity to roll its human waves down the south's border. China would likely sell supplies to both sides.
>>54050284 Mandatory conscription is third world thing tho People think SK might need it more than other developed cunt because they're next to some mad meme country, but I think they should give that up. It's not like NK can invade Seoul in 30 mins like the meme say or anything.
Also yes I think Japan is better armed, in the sea at least, but that REALLY matters.
>>54051986 >A lot of Koreans in the north look identical to Manchurians and a lot of Koreans in the south look identical to Japanese. ? uh literally not at all koreans and japanese look so different its actually incredible that people still do the whole xd all asian rok same meme
South Koreans have more modern weaponry, which they can buy directly from us. Japan has to jump through loopholes in order to do the same. Training wise, Korea has 70 years of experience. Japan has lost their attack doctrines, Koreans developed theirs (as wells as having to deal with stress that boosted their defense doctrine)
>>54052060 "a lot" means some overlap. the general features like face shape is similar, but after diet and different beauty standards their general appearance has changed dramatically. when you go to certain parts of sk, you know certain japanese features came from there
>Gwanggaeto the Great Koguryo was nearly ruined when he was born because of a powerful Baekje king who invaded and defeated Koguryo. Gwanggaeto singlehandedly created an empire through conquest that reached modern-day Mongolia. His empire was way bigger than the Koguryo map on Wikipedia. He got revenge on Baekje, and fucked up all his neighbors during his time including the Japanese and Xianbei, and vassalized all his nomadic neighbors.
>Eulji Mundeok Destroyed a Chinese invading army of 300,000. He fucked them up so bad that it led to the collapse of Sui (a united Chinese dynasty).
>Yeon Gaesomun Last leader of Koguryo who fucked up the most powerful emperor in Chinese history (Li Shimin) and chased him and forced him to hide in a well. He later became an iconic villain in Peking Opera.
>Gang Gamchan Fucked up the Khitan invading army. Before that, the Khitans had crushed Song China and were the superpower on the continent.
>Choe Young Famous undefeated general who has victories over Japanese, Jurchens, Ming (Red Turbans), and Yuan (Mongols). Underrated as fuck.
>Yi Sunshin Obviously.
All those guys are world-class military leaders. You guys don't know them because there haven't been comics, movies, or games about them. Korea has one of the most underrated military histories, and certainly one of the best among current Asian countries. Seriously, Japan brags about resisting two Mongolian invasions? Korea fought the Mongols for THIRTY years and finally signed a truce to become a vassal but was never outright conquered. How about you guys ignore memes for once and actually bother to do some reading about the subject.
>>54052433 It's me again. Modern Korea vs modern Japan? Japan because of their navy. But they wouldn't be able to gain any territory because Korean army is superior. Likewise there's no way for Korea to invade because Japan's navy is superior.
>>54052433 One more meme to clear up. Korea was a vassal (sibling state) not an actual conquered territory of Yuan. That means no Yuan troops resided in Korea. And Korean kings married Mongolian princesses including the daughters of Kublai Khan himself because the Mongols were trying to make the two races become one. Even the last empress of Yuan was a Korean women.
>>54051224 They have an "army" but they are starting to rearm much to the disapproval of many Japanese people. Japan is starting to see China as a threat and want to be adequately armed to deal with them.
>>54056453 China is collapsing right before our eyes. It's wise of Japan to militarize because when a nation gets more desperate they become more aggressive, and that is what is happening to China right now.
>>54056785 I wouldn't say China is going to collapse, they are like the US in so many ways: massive land area, good climate, lots of people (huge workforce), plenty of arable land, etc. China and the US will always be great economic powers on a global scale. However, China's bubble is bursting. China cannot really fuck up too hard because of how much they have in their borders, just like the US. I can't say for certain that China will surpass the US any time soon, but they won't really fall far behind.
