Here is a quick primer on the history on the Japanese occupation of Wojte Atoll;
The outbreak of the Second World War, Japan was gradually built a base forming part of the external defense of Japan. In addition, radio stations were built base for seaplanes land airport with two runways on takeoff length of 1052 meters and 1524 and two hangars with a technical background.
To defend the atoll was built firing positions for six 150 mm and six 127 mm guns. After the war began there have been more five coastal guns and six 150 mm 37 mm anti-tank cannons, along with about ninety light anti-aircraft guns and machine guns. In 1943, they were from the damaged ship Goyotsu Maru on strengthening coastal defense ship dismantled in two 120 mm cannons. The island was placed Wojte the radar for early warning against air attack near covering approximately 50 miles (80.5 km).
The crew gradually formed on the atoll in 2103 of Army and Navy, 766 civilian workers, under the command of Captain Nobukazu Yoshimi (of which survived the war only to 1244). The aircraft at the local airport gradually were two squadrons of torpedo bombers aircraft B5N Nakajima Kate and Ajči D3A Val bombers, Mitsubishi G3M Nell and Mitsubishi G4M Betty (they were used for patrol flights) and some eight hundred and first Flight possessing six to twelve seaplanes Kawaniši H6K , which gradually replaced Type Kawaniši H8K Emily .Now Emily flying boats bombed in the night from 4th to March 5th 1942 the island of Oahu.
So as you can see the way the game treats the build-up of Wojte Atoll, is not exactly historical. But in terms of the ground unit structure of the game, is a close proximation of what would been the basic starting structure of the Japanese base-force.
The only game flaw I've found so far is that I don't have the attention span to read DivePac's post. I hope I didn't miss anything important. That reminds me, can anyone get Bullwinkle and Alfred to confine their answers to one or two sentences? Oh my, I'm now in my third sentence, somebody please stop me! Too late. I hope no one noticed that I can't count. I'll have to start a different thread for that.
