  • The whole of current Japan is physically transported back to January 1945 and takes the place of WW2 Japan.
  • Assume all politicians, soldiers and key government and military personnel were in the country when it was transported
  • Current Japan is given time to assess the situation and they've realise that their whole country has replaced WW2 Japan and that they in 1945.
  • Modern Japan has access to all equipment, resources and historical information stored in their country at the time of the jump to 1945
  • The country of world the are unaware of the 'switch"

Can technologically superior modern day Japan fight off the WW2 US?

It is January 1st 1945

Nope Japan is too small to win, altho they could probably force a stalemate.

Japan would get creamed. They don’t have a standing military and their population isn’t trained to fight anymore. The USA would just walk all over them. Especially since by January 1945, the US had basically won the war anyway.

That's changing, after the WWII, the United States became the armed wing of the West against the Soviet Union, and pro-Western Asian nations such as Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and so on, but according to some military accomplishments, the US is starting to relax.

Let us a take a look into the ' European Best Team Sniper Competition in 2019' among 17 nations from Europe + USA and Canada and the first place was obtained by France, the second place by the Czech Republic and the third place for Germany.

PS:

You must consider that the United States is traditionally the main organizers of the European Best Team Sniper Competition.

If you would see what's going on in Germany, you can see everywhere military propaganda, the same case is in France, triggered by the EU.

Japan is 79 years ahead in technology, training and weapons

Airforce, missile systems and naval fleets shit all over WW2 era. F-15 fighters could solo the US's airforce with ease

Also, this isn't just Just. There are numerous US military bases currently in Japan.

You are also forgetting that Japan has access to detailed historical records archived of WW2 events in 1945. They know exactly what the Alies are going to do before they even do it

What Modern Japan lacks in numbers they more than make up for in technology and resources
