The Imperial Japanese Navy (Kyûzitai: 大日本帝國海軍, Sinzitai: 大日本帝国海軍) or IJN, officially the Navy of the Greater Japanese Empire, was the naval force of Japan from 1869 to 1947. In the Call of Duty series, it is an enemy faction, fought in Call of Duty: World at War in the Pacific War, though much less frequently than its counterpart, the Imperial Japanese Army. It is not a playable multiplayer faction.
The most prominent level in World at War, where the IJN appear is "Black Cats", where the player (as Petty Officer Locke) must destroy three merchant vessels bearing the flag of the Imperial Navy and fight A6M Zero of the fleet air arm.
