The Axis are one of two teams that appear in Blitz Brigade. The Axis is largely based off of the German (Nazi) forces during World War II. The Stealth can be seen as a Japanese soldier due to his Wakizashi (Katana) and Shuriken except he doesn't have the regular Imperial Japanese Army uniform. The Soldier, Gunner, and Medic can be seen as Nazi Fanatics due to their blond hair, pale white skin, and fanatical face features. The sniper is Italian, although he says a phrase in German. You can choose this faction at the armory/base-point, but it's not an important choice. The factions have got both the same amount of health, weapons, speed etc.
