Apparently some people are confused that the weapons aren't the normal ones as used in other dll's, allow me to clarify:

USMC officer = M1. This is because the shotgun replaces the thompson, and we were originally using an M1 carbine, but it sucked so we reverted to using the normal M1 instead.

Banzai = katana/pistol. This is because the japanese never had any airborne troops, so we added this guy because it'd be cool and somewhat different.

Jap engie = rifle/tnt. He gets the rifle simply because the japs never had any bazookas.

Jap lmg/hmg = same weapon. This is because the standard heavy machinegun of the japs was a huge piece mounted on a tripod, and nothing you'd expect a single man to run around with by himself. Hence the japs get 2 extra lmg's to make up for the lack of HMG firepower.

USMC shotgun - this guy replaces the standard airborne class, and the shotgun replaces the thompson.

The Japs had nothing :P.
I think they prefered the ubar effective airplanes kamikaze hehe, it would be fun to have guidable airplanes in dday.
Another question Flower/Fafner: why do I get low fps at the map beginning?After sometime playing it, they return to normal.

"Banzai = katana/pistol. This is because the japanese never had any airborne troops, so we added this guy because it'd be cool and somewhat different.

Please, make a good M1 Carbine, it would be an excellent addition to the game!

About the Japanese LMG. Technically, there is no HMG ever fielded in the game D-Day (the MG42 and US .30 are both classified as Light Machine guns or Medium Machine guns at best, when not on a tripod), so you could use the Japanese Type 96/99 (pretty much the same gun) as the Japanese HMG, and the Japanese Type 11 "Taisho" as the standard LMG. It also uses Japanese rifle clips for ammunition (holding up to 6x 5 rnd clips) which would be a cool feature. Sure, the Type 11 was plagued with problems (like the Sten jamming in the GBR addition) but it was a pretty nice gun AND was more prevalent (believe it or not) than the Type 96! You would more commonly find a Type 11, so why isn't it in the game?

Anyway, here's a reference picture:

And some stats:
6.5mm Caliber (small round, muzzle velocity slightly under most rifles)
Magazine: Up to 6 Rifle clips (30 rounds total, probably with a reload action similar to the sniper rifle bolt locking in between each clip)
500 Rounds/minute theoretical (about 8 rounds a second, in theory)
Weight: 22.5 lbs

It would be awesome if you could add this.
