@Hfar Japan was a very fast adopter of the firearm, fully integrating it within their military structure within a generation or so (at one time they had more firearms than Europe did IIRC). For all the samurai and katana worship, the Japanese LOVED them some firearms. And then they did it again in the 19th century, going from matchlocks and samurai to fully modern (for the time) armies within a couple decades.
