About the IJA Coastal Defense Battery:
On December 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan declared war on the United States, Great Britain and Netherlands. After an unprecedented string of coordinated surprise attacks, Japan soon controlled a vast amount of territory, including most of the Western Pacific. To defend their newly expanded empire, the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy embarked on an ambitious campaign to construct defensive bastions on the outlying islands and territories. In order to achieve victory in the Pacific, for the Allies would be forced them to breach this ring of concrete and steel.
The IJA Coastal Defense Battery is a multipart battle pack containing a Type 10 120mm Naval Gun, a prepared gun pit with ammunition lockers, and concrete observation pillbox. It also contains four Imperial Japanese Soldiers equipped with the state of the art infantry weapons (including two over-molded guns from BrickArms)
