Guerrilla warfare is a form of irregular warfare in which a small group of combatants, such as paramilitary personnel, armed civilians, or irregulars, use military tactics including ambushes, sabatoges, raids, petty warfare, hit-and-run tactics and mobility to fight a larger and less-mobile traditional military.
- ambush JSDF troops by disguising Imperial soldiers as civilians and mechants using shapeshifters, while sending in monsters to distract the JSDF. Also attempts at sabotage.
- ambush at night
- discredit the JSDF in the eyes of the public by disguising Imperial soldiers as JSDF members and attacking civilians.
- use irregular weapons such as chain nets to incapacitate helicopters and armored ogres against tanks.
- Imperial soldiers and shapeshifters are quickly discovered and dispatched with little to no effect to overall JSDF forces.
- No effect on JSDF logistics and supply
- complete underestimation of JSDF firepower and communication
- night abushes are nullified by night-vision technology
- Imperials are poorly disguised as JSDF with no firearms, no vehicles, and do not speak Japanese. They are easily discovered and dealt with.
- Absolute lack of hit-and-run tactics and usage of swarming tactics resulting in massive casualties of the Imperial Army.
- Irregular weapons prove ineffective and results in more casualties for the Imperial Army
- small, inconsequential victories that do nothing for morale and were far more costly than they were worth
- eventual abandonment of guerrilla warfare.
