They cannot get much more kills now, as most missions of the Japanese abort, their morale and exp should be in the cellar. They should still have enough planes as the AI makes them from "thin air"...
Bwahhaha! Wait until you are in the range of AI Tokyo ;)
Hmmm, +900 missions by Aug 43 is possible but …
I suspect that each interception counts as a mission. And there can be many-many incoming waves in a turn.
Not waves, I think, but being sent up on CAP several times each day. Every time they come down to refuel or rearm the meter sets for another mission count, whether there was an enemy attack or not.
