Looks certainly much different than today... much more "kaput".

Some tanks, the large concrete bunker which housed the generator, japanese tank turrets and Machine Gun pits made of steel (housing pigs these days...) plus some large guns can still be seen today. Lot is dotted all over the place and you simply stumple over it when walking around in hte village.

You have been there..cool. I quess the big guns are the British guns that the Japanese stole from Singapore, i think. Just cant imagine that there were hundreds of hidden pillboxes and to just walk up to them. Unlike the game, all japanese planes cane from other bases during the battle. I tried to replicate the map in FMB but you need too many objects which clogs the gpu.
