Japan Defense Force

Japan Defense Force (Nihon Kokubou Gun)

History: Formed as the successor of the JSDF (Japan Self Defense Force) The Japan Defense Force is larger and more powerful than its previous form. Formed generally to protect Japan, the JDF possesses a powerful force of Wanzers, Two of the larger Wanzer manufacturers (Iguchi Heavy Industries and Kirishima Heavy Industries) have contracts to sell certain wanzers only to the JDF. Their troops are very loyal and never backdown. Many of their troops are of a very young age, some as young as 17. The JDF is separated into two divisions, Eastern Japan Division (Tokyo to Hokkaido) and the Western Japan Division (Everything west of Tokyo) The HQ for the Eastern Division is in Tokyo while the HQ for the Western Division is in Osaka. Though they have a powerful military force, they still can't attack unless they have been attacked first. Although recently they have been known to declare something as a threat and attack it without being attacked first. They are good allies of the ADP. They would love nothing better than to send a Neutron S missile to turn the planet mobius into a barren nuclear wasteland. The JDF is secretly working on a space fleet to combat the threat of the enemies' space fleets.

The JDF was formed shortly after the First Spritewar.
