The ground losses do seem a bit high. In fact looking at figures from Wikipedia (I know) that by 1945 there were 5,5 million men in the IJA, it seems that you have just destroyed half of the whole IJA.

Seems like a bug esp when you think they were attacking you with their air force.

In a clash between carriers, a middle sized Japanese city is believed to have been sunk, although reports have yet to be verified when the aviators involved in the battle have sobered up.

It's a stack overflow. If you maybe spent a little time finding out what sort of losses the Japs ACTUALLY suffered in this attack before posting...
