Part 1250: Operational Report: 09/05/45
The Japanese hit us with quite a large force of planes. Shame it doesn't stop us from shooting a lot of them down.
This will be the last day of hitting Maebashi's airfield.
We are also continuing to level Sapporo. One attack sinks two small Japanese boats.
After a day of raids, we see a sub get a kill.
The Japanese at Sapporo will not hold out for long at this rate.
We lose a couple of planes, but the Japanese defenders here are taking heavy losses to bombing a sure sign of imminent collapse!
Sure enough, the troops mount a shock attack, and the enemy crumble before our men. Next stop Manila!
The Japanese AV goes up once more, somehow they seem to keep pulling themselves back from the brink. We have troops in Port Arthur now, and more marching south.
A bloody day for the Japanese once more, and we can try and take Manila I'm expecting to have the AV advantage, but for this to be a long battle due to the shear numbers of enemy troops that will be present in the city.
The Japanese base points drop big, and overall we gain 500 points even after another CVE goes down!
