    Examples of small Japanese individual fighting positions.

    1. 7.7mm aircraft machine gun modified for ground use.
    2. 7.7mm HMG.
    3. 7.7mm LMG.
    4. Rifleman.
    5. 50mm grenade discharger.


    Such positions, often dug beneath trees, were difficult to detect and offered protection from grenades, small arms, and mortar fire.
