Just curious......what do the Chinese Collaborationist and Manchukuo forces look like?

In a couple WITP mods, some very low exp. troops start in Manchukuo, which look like Manchukuo forces. Only problem is that it's pretty easy to train them up to acceptable levels in a few months. Tough to model them over the whole war.

These troops are tough to model....large numbers, fine for rear area security, and pretty much melt away in any real combat.

How did you guys handle this?

Dont use them for anything but garrison troops. They have VERY low experience and a dismal replacement rate.

....which is realistic, but will they train up to acceptable experience levels like in WITP? If that Manchukuo unit sits in place for a few months in WITP, pretty soon it is in the 50s in terms of experience, equivalent to a standard IJA formation.

Will that happen in AE? At least the very low replacement rate would prevent rampant use.

No idea. Never got more than 6 weeks in without restarting. I DO know that a 25 experience fighter unit will train into the 70s in about 3 weeks (unless they changed that).
