FYI, the 1st Airborne Brigade consists of around 2,000 personnel.

Of course...how did American talk to Russians in WWII...sign language??

Smoke signals in the form of two mushroom clouds. That's how they talked.

"Through a translator. Would translators be used during time of war too?"

Skydive seems more suitable for invasion than self defense to me.

True. But when it's time to pay the piper ie; get ur feet wet / SHTF. How can you back up an ally or "fellow countrymen" deploying (either to-from) Kyushu to Hokkaido? Okinawa? Senkaku Islands?

It could be for defense as well. Depends on size of their balls- but heck! There were only 2 dozen or so, of these heroes. Doesn't say too much now does it-

Cool and interesting. I honestly didn't know the SDF had a paratrooper unit. An entire brigade (according to Wiki).
