Details
A squad of Japanese Self Defense Force soldiers and their vehicles are caught in an unexplained time slip that sends them back to feudal Japan. The slip drops the SDF troops right into the middle of a skirmish between warriors, prompting them to defend themselves with modern weapons. After gunning down one of the groups, the soldiers earn the trust of a clan that they inadvertently help. Teaming up with the Lieutenant, who believes that their key to returning is causing enough havoc that there is a disturbance in history, the troops and the clan of warriors seek to rule over the area through force.
