Behavior & Policy
At first they were specialized in industry and manufactury, but after communication with Belgium broke down, they specialized in Belgian food to keep their school afloat, and begin to grow popular with their food.
Their students are conservative and hard working as they didn't hesitate to switch their school's speciality to save it.
Their force consists of the French AMC-35 and the Belgian T-15 (Belgian version of the Vickers Carden-Loyd 6-Ton). They manage to acquire, after much negociations, some M4(105) Sherman but they seems to have issues with the turrets. They also possesses a turretless M24 Chaffee.
Their key tactics are unknown.
Waffle bought and give a second life to an American schoolship that meant to be dismanteled but its appeareance is unknown. They have various facilities to process meats and seafood. They also have an arts division on the schoolship's side.
As no student is ever seen, no visual of their uniform is available.
Waffle is a smaller school with an interesting past. As Belgium as a nation has limited natural ressources thus their economy focus on importing raw materials and sell the valued-added finished products.
The Kansai region formed political bonds with Belgium, on the surface, for no reason than cultural exchange. But in actuality the local government wanted to poach their manufacture technology. Waffle was originally called Belgian industry exchange school. And it was successful in improving the manufacturing skills of the locals. However when the war started, the contact with Belgium broke down and the school shrunk. Senshado thus halted there.
Some members of the school sees that the end is near and refused to give up, so they changed the school's direction to focus on Belgian culinary traditions. This was a hit with Kobe citizens and the school started growing again. The school changed its name to Waffle to reflect that it is no longer about manufacturing. When they start to run out of classroom for new students, they purchased and refurbished an American school ship that was meant to be dismantled.
The increased popularity of the school means they started running into cooking ingredient shortages, and have now started to import food products from Belgium directly. The school just kept upgrading their facilities until they were able to process meats, seafood, and there was even an arts division on the side. As the school expanded, so did the student numbers and Senshado was revived.
