The Allies leave a few openings in the South, and kamis get some decent results and some get skewered.

Sweeps keep going over the Home Islands. No Strat bombing today.

Another Shanghai attack.

Here is the kami strike. With the ships sunk and the troops on them I'd guess these strikes break even in VPs. I have some other ideas ...

Air losses. I may try a few more kami strikes coming up. I've got some IJAAF groups converted to the Patsy with 350mph speed and 23/29 range. There are some unexpected bases that still have supply I'll use and see if anything is left unguarded out there!

Feb 6, 1945


More Strat bombing against Gifu, targeting individual airframe factories. A decent showing, but not nearly as effective as manpower bombing. Factories take some hits, but I won't feel the production effects for a while. It's mainly the VP hit that I feel now.

The big event though was ... ATOMOIC BOMB on Tokyo!!

I looked hard at first to find the damage. I noticed there were about 8-9k new Strat VPs on the info screen, but didn't notice what had been hit at Tokyo. Finally I looked at manpower, and it seems the strike destroyed a LOT of manpower and damaged all of the rest. I'm curious if this will now limit the effectieness of manpower bombing here. If so init will make me think twice about hitting Tokyo with a Nuke.

More on it all later.

Also, Shanghai takes a big hit as more troops pile in. The first full DA gets a 1:3 and lowers forts to 6. If only there was some more supply this would hang on and damage a lot more allies, but the build-up was long and extensive. It's held a lot of Allied troops here waiting, so that's good.
