The JSDF Rangers are a Japanese sniper recon infantry unit that appears in the Wargame: Red Dragon.



The JSDF Rangers are Blue Dragons' only shock recon unit. JSDF Rangers are one of only two shock recon units that have sniper rifles instead of machine guns (the other is the Průzkumníci). Their submachinegun gives them excellent firepower at close range, while their Howa DMR is effectively a guarantee of damage for every round expended, as even when panicked their accuracy with the DMR will not dip below 90%. Combined, JSDF Rangers are capable of punching far above their weight level and deal the highest damage per second of any shock recon unit, and are even capable of contending with INF tab shock infantry.

However, when pitted against elite recon units like the aforementioned Spetsnaz GRU, JSDF Rangers will be outclassed. Additionally, their M72 LAW, while sufficient for destroying transport vehicles, are generally insufficient for dealing with FSVs or tanks with an armor value above 3. Furthermore, their transports leave a lot to be desired, with a choice of either Chugata, UH-1H, HMV, KV-107, the lattermost of which exacts an availability malus.
