Downfall, modified by me.

I included B-52(specs according to wikipedia) and mainly put them in the 8th airforce instead of B-17, a jetfighter called XP-1, sent P-80 shooting star to some units. Units that were to become reinforcements are in from the start. More infantry units at Singapore. I downgraded the japanase E-boats so that they didn’t have as many guns or deep charges as before to give my subs a fighting chance. I might have made errors when modding, but if so then its shown during the game. Oh, and yes i am lazy, fighters default at 10 000 feet when i press escort or sweep and i am just to lazy to change the altitude(especially since i get 50-75% of the enemy shot down when facing big raids)

------------Scenario start----------------------------------------------

Late in August of 1945 it was clear that Japan was not to surrender and the allied hq made a plan to force them to surrender. The allied had access to new weapons that had become available. A new bomber had been manufactured in great numbers to supplement the B-29 and was called B-52. It could be based in Hawaii and bomb Tokyo. Its highest altitude were over 10,000 feet over were the Japanese AA range. Another weapon was the first US jetfighter. It was called the XP-1 and if based on Okinawa it could reach and fight in the skies over Tokyo.

The allied plan was the following:

Philippines units

5th US amphibious corps was to invade Formossa and secure the island and its airfield in September

9th US corps was to finish off the last Japanese strongholds on the Philipines

1st US corps would act as reserve for 5th amphibious corps and would be sent to Formossa if needed. Otherwise 1 or more of their division would secure the islands between Formossa and Okinawa

XXIV US corps was to take Hong Kong if recon showed that the city could be taken by one corps alone. Otherwise they would secure the area between Saawtow and Foochow.

British units

Units from Singapore would take Palembang and then secure Bangkok and Saigon. The border between UK and US area of operation would be Vietnam.

Hawaii units:

3rd US amphibious corps to await the capture of Formossa and the movements of XXIV corps. After above goals are met then 3rd corps would assist in the capture of Hangshow and Shanghai.

Japanese islands not to be invaded until all above areas captured. Invasionarea is north of Kagoshima with the goal of taking Kagoshima and/or Nagasaki and their ports.

Seapower:

Submarines were to take up positions around the possible shippingroutes and sink as many ships as possible

Carrier task forces from Guam and Peleleiu were to sail to a point between Japan and Iwo Jima and draw in as many kamikazes as possible so that the main invasion will meet as few as possible

Airpower:

B-52s and B-29s to area bomb at daytime from 50 000 feet and create as much fires as possible

At night they will bomb from 5 000 feet and aim at factories

Medium bombers to attack shipping if possible otherwise area of intrest.

Fighters to either provide escort for bombers or sweep areas were Japanese have lots of fighters.

Torpedobombers and divebombers to attack Japanese shipping if possible.

### RE: Lets crush Japan and cause its Downfall and watch B-52s come for a visit(modded version)

I included B-52(specs according to wikipedia) and mainly put them in the 8th airforce instead of B-17,

Ingenious, but it would have been more realistic to use the B-36 Peacemaker (mix of piston and jet engines) or the B-47 Stratojet. Both of these flew in the '40s, while the B-52 did not fly until 1952.

Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?

If i had known they existed then i would have put them in, but since my bomber knowledge makes a jump from B29 to B52 i used a B52. If i make yet another mod i would perhaps use them

### RE: Lets crush Japan and cause its Downfall and watch B-52s come for a visit(modded version)

Turn 2:

Strike leader to base: Struck Tokyo harbor. Outcome better than expected.

Allied HQ: We are rebasing the B-52 from Pearl to closer to the targets since they seem to require a great deal of maintenance the longer they are in the air.

Japanese citizen in Tokyo to neutral ambassador: I know the Americans like hot dogs, but do they need to set the entire city of Tokyo on fire to have a bbq

Neutral ambassador: I don’t know, I just know that every neutral embassy is relocating to the imperial palace since the Americans don’t bomb near the place. The Russian embassy seem to think that Sapporo is a safer place.

Strike leader to base: Struck Tokyo harbor. Outcome better than expected.

Allied HQ: We are rebasing the B-52 from Pearl to closer to the targets since they seem to require a great deal of maintenance the longer they are in the air.

Japanese citizen in Tokyo to neutral ambassador: I know the Americans like hot dogs, but do they need to set the entire city of Tokyo on fire to have a bbq

Neutral ambassador: I don’t know, I just know that every neutral embassy is relocating to the imperial palace since the Americans don’t bomb near the place. The Russian embassy seem to think that Sapporo is a safer place.

"Manpower hits 15878

Holy excessive use of force, Batman! I don't normally laugh out loud, but that one did it.

What's the industry of Tokyo looking like about now?

### RE: Lets crush Japan and cause its Downfall and watch B-52s come for a visit(modded version)

When i look at how the industry is doing i check attack cities: Tokyo still have 555 HI undamaged(2186 damaged) 72 manpower avalible(20+ damaged). Naval and Merchant shipyards both at 7 and repair at 2.

At Osaka the HI is down to 255.

And when its time for a new turn there is no anchor in Tokyo, as if to say "no shipping here, nothing going on here" and lots of TFs heading away.

I read the wiki on US raids on Japan yesterday and think the japanese AA is stronger and better than it was IRL.

Turn 3:

44 para division to Singapore: Palembang captured

Singapore to London: This is how paras are used, don’t send Monty here to advise us on how to use them since we don’t throw them away.

Russian embassy to Moscow: Comrade Stalin, don’t give US any excuse to bomb Moscow. Look at the picture that comes with the message. This is how USA new bomber B-52 and “old” B-29 make Tokyo look.
