About Yu Jing

yujing
The other great power, the eternal rival always conspiring and intriguing to bring down its adversary is Yu Jing , the Asiatic giant. The entire Far East is united beneath the banner of what was once China but which has now formed a single, though varied, oriental culture. Product of great industrial and technological development and a forceful, thriving economy, Yu Jing is determined to achieve the dominant position which it aspires to.

Yu Jing is a playable faction in Corvus Belli Infinity that has a heavy Chinese flavour. They appear as a mishmash of classical and modern Chinese aesthetics and stereotypes, not all of them flattering. On the table, Yu Jing players can field most of the technology and unit types available to the other factions in the game save for the really niche stuff like shape shifting assassins and alien mind control devices. They have an emphasis on heavy infantry, and it is expected with the coming of the new edition of Infinity that Yu Jing will be able to put down more power armoured troops than any other faction. They are no means typecast in this role however, as Yu Jing players can call upon stealthy ninjas, superbike racers, shaolin warrior monks and even heavily armed transforming robots if they wish.

Yu Jing also includes 2 playable subfactions, with at least another two planned.

Japanese Sectorial Army.

One of the greatest regional armies of Yu Jing is the Japanese Sectorial Army. As the Japanese have always shown a clearly distinct cultural identity, the High Command, with the Party’s consent, thought it was opportune to reward Nipponese troops for the courage shown in their military service.

In this way they were given the ability to form a small army composed entirely of troops and units of Nipponese origin. Such army would have its own officers, all of them Japanese, who could establish their own operative methodology and their own combat style, remaining always loyal to the military precepts established by Yu Jing’s High Command.

The Japanese Sectorial Army has a strong offensive focus, reflecting the brave and combative nature of the troops composing it. The Nipponese warlike philosophy is strongly influenced by Bushido, the Path of the Warrior. The noncommissioned instructional officers have stamped into the head of each recruit the lessons taken from old Japanese military texts. Concepts like courage, duty (giri 義理), the will to win and the importance of an aggressive attitude receive special emphasis, and provide a subconscious motivation for the troops of the Rising Sun.

The Imperial Service.

Yu Jing’s Judicial Corps, in its authorized mission of protection and Law and Order enforcement, has a tactical wing for special tasks known as the Imperial Service. This section is the one in charge of carrying out tasks of internal defense, civil and military security, including anti-terrorist and anti-subversive actions.

The Imperial Service is under the direct control of the Emperor, and is considered his representation on the streets or in battle. On the operational level, the armed wing of the Judicial Corps can act fully integrated into the organizational structure of the army or as an independent intervention force.

The Imperial Service has a black reputation as a military corps because of the moral standard of its units, a mix of infamous penal regiments with police and paramilitary units sadly famous due to their lack of scruples and preference for drastic solutions.

Nevertheless, the effectiveness of this military body in the execution of its missions cannot be denied. Aside from the crudity of its hard and severe methods, or maybe because of them, the Imperial Service knows how to take control of any situation in which it may be involved and stands as a fearsome enemy; the claws with which the Dragon destroys the enemies of Yu Jing.
