Shenjiying, or "Divine Machine Division," is an elite division stationed in the imperial capital of Beijing during the Ming dynasty
This division was entrusted with the research and development of gunpowder weapons as well as training and deploying elite gunners for the Ming campaigns. In their two centuries of service they have fought in nearly all fronts of the empire, from northern frontiers against the Mongol hordes, the mountain passes of Yunnan, the jungles of Burma/Vietnam where they fought against charging elephants, to Korea where they contended with Hideyoshi's samurais and finally- in the death throes of their dynasty they stood against an unstoppable rolling tide of Manchu invaders.
