RA3 Imperial Warrior Cameo

Imperial Warriors are the basic infantry units of the Empire of the Rising Sun.

Background

Drawing from a vast pool of young Japanese males (through drafting or voluntary enlistment), the ranks of Imperial Warriors are filled with fanatically-loyal and well-trained warriors armed with cutting-edge equipment. Each Imperial Warrior is unflinchingly loyal to the Emperor and adheres to the code of Bushido; he considers fighting and dying for the Emperor to be the greatest honour.

Imperial Warriors are seen to be wearing khaki-coloured uniforms and advanced body armour. The armour consists of a helmet with an optional faceplate and a thick vest with a personal power supply used by the MX Type-2 kinetic carbine and the beam katana. The carbine fires superheated slugs capable of lacerating and severely burning unarmoured targets. The beam katana is a mass-produced sword that can be temporarily superheated, creating an incredibly deadly melee weapon.

As a result of their training, it is common practice for Imperial Warriors to charge against their enemies using their katanas. This is mainly done to clear garrisoned buildings.

It was found in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising that Imperial Warriors who disobeyed orders during the Third World War were sentenced to be interned within DevilCoats. These are Ten-Shi Zaibatsu's powered suits that are also known as Steel Ronins.

Abilities

RA3 Banzai Charge Icons
Banzai Charge Imperial Warriors are equipped with beam katanas which can be used for a short amount of time to quickly strike down enemy infantry. This ability will also increase the unit's speed for a short period of time.

General Usage

BARBARIANS!
- Imperial Warrior

 During Operation: Enemy of our EnemyNatasha and Tanya along with a combined Allied and Soviet force faced hordes of these fanatical warriors. The groups of Imperial Warriors were wiped out despite their vast numbers.

In the Soviet Perspective, a surviving War Bear and Conscript tasked with assassinating the Emperor overheard the Imperial Warriors complain about their jobs. They were so dissatisfied that they failed to even notice the two Soviet soldiers, leading to their imminent deaths.

In the Imperial Perspective, 2 Sudden Transports had ten Imperial Warriors ambushing the defending Soviet Conscripts in Operation: Crumble Kremlin Crumble.

In-game

As the Empire of the Rising Sun's standard infantry, they are primarily employed as an anti-infantry unit. Their blades augment them tremendously in this role since they are seen to be effective against other infantry units. Each unit costs 150 credits, which costs less than the tougher Allied Peacekeeper but costs more than the weaker Soviet Conscript.
