Hi all, in WII Japan made large use of suicidal missions, 'kamikaze' is a japanese word indeed,
I'm not only referring to famous suicidal air attacks of late war; in many situations suicidal attacks were made, for instance at Corregidor special units walked deliberately through the minefields to open a path for other troops. No other army would have done the same so widely.
So, if the target is very valuable, a Japanese unit can be sacrificed, to me isn't gamey. But this should be a real sacrifice and a costly tactitcs.
I mean you should use the whole unit, not just a fragment; using a small fragment is very gamey to me, you can't believe that a fragment of 10 men can control a town, the countrymen could take their rifles and shoot them easily. Also, if you use fragments you have plenty of them and you can feel free to use them for every target, more or less important, this tactics that costs the supreme sacrifice is less believable for small valuable targets.
