Actual battle debut of Zeke
- 1st Combined Air Group (RADM YAMAGUCHI Tamon) and 2nd Combined Air Group (RADM ONISHI Takijiro) were deployed in Hankou and started Chongqing bombing (Operation 101) in May 1940 by Nells. The distance between Hankou and Chongqing was round trip 1,500 km. At that time, the fighter Claude could not escort due to insufficient cruising range. 山口多聞 YAMAGUCHI Tamon who took the unified command, was forced to send out the bomber unit naked, and was called “人殺し多聞丸 Murder Tamon Maru” due to the enormous damage.
- The next fighter under development has been rumored to have extremely high performance including a long cruising range, here was an urgent need for the immediate launch of the battle. Under these circumstances, the upper level of IJN decided to introduce new fighters to the front line as prototypes, although it was unusual. The shape up of the new fighters was decided to be performed on-site in parallel with pilot training. A new squad was formed in June to introduce the new fighter to the front. Beginning in July, 6 prototypes directed by LT 横山保 YOKOYAMA Tamotsu and 9 prototypes directed by LT 進藤三郎 advanced to Hankou. The two RADMs ordered the two LTs to sortie in an escort mission. The two LTs explained that pilots needed time to become familiar, and the two RADMs understood. The two LTs carefully trained that there should be no failure in launching the new fighters. The two RADMs were full of fighting spirit and were frustrated by the carefulness of the two LTs. They sometimes asked, “Are you scared of dying!” The two LTs endured these and advanced their training. In the meantime, the troubles of the new fighter were solved, and at the end of July, it was adopted as a type zero fighter (Zeke). The skill level of the pilots has been improved to the point where there is no anxiety. The time has come for the sortie.
- On August 19, 12 Zekes conducted by LT YOKOYAMA were dispatched to 54 Chongqing bombing Nells escort missions. About 30 Chinese Air Force fighters were expected to intercept over Chongqing, but they did not show up. During the subsequent bombings, the Chinese Air Force did not intercept. The Chinese Air Force knowing that the new fighters were in escort mission, evacuated during the bombing, and after the bombed Japanese aircraft left, they appeared over Chongqing and conducted a demonstration flight. The two LTs decided to use this. In other words, the fighter squadron returned to Chongqing at an appropriate point when returning after the bombing, destroy the Chinese Air Force fighters appeared there. On September 13, the strategy was implemented. The 13 Zekes, led by LT SHINDO, returned to Chongqing after returning from Chongqing at the 50km point. 27 Chinese Air Force fighters consisting of I-15 and I-16 were in front of them. Since the altitude difference advantage was 1,000m and the enemy fighters were surprised, the air battle was advantageous. When it was over, it was an overwhelming victory of 27 enemy aircraft shot down and 0 friendly aircraft damage.

Awesome...thanks! Questions:

1) For 1st Air Fleet, are the following correct?

Chief Engineers
VACANT - 1 July 1943 - 15 June 1945

Or, if the position was not filled upon reactivation, could it have been abolished on 20 July 1942?

Surgeons
VACANT - 1 July 1943 - 1 August 1944

Paymasters
(P) CAPT FUNAYAMA Chuichi (??) - 1 July 1943 - 8 August 1944

I don't have FUNAYAMA Chuichi as part of Paymaster Academy Class 9. I have 19 graduates for that class and he isn't one of them. Did Paymaster Academy Class 9 have 20 graduates and not 19?

Staff Officers
LT / LCDR SATO Hiroshi 佐藤博 (??) - I have an officer with this matching Kanji; he was from Class 70. However, I have him listed as being KIA aboard JINTSU in July 1943. Perhaps my info is wrong?

2) Was there any way to tell what officers were assigned to various Staff positions (Head, Communications, etc.)? Just curious.

3) Is the following correct for 3rd Air Fleet?

VACANT - 10 July 1944 - 8 August 1945

Paymasters
VACANT - 10 July 1944 - 1 August 1944

VACANT - 13 September 1945 - 1 October 1945

4) For 5th Air Fleet Staff Officers, I have TAKAGI Nagamori (57) as KIA at Hiroshima on 6 August 1945.

5) Is the following correct for 5th Air Fleet?
Chief Engineers
VACANT - 10 February 1945 - 10 October 1945

6) Is the following correct for 10th Air Fleet?
Vice-Chiefs-of-Staff
VACANT - 1 March 1945 - 10 October 1945

ABSENT: 1 July 1943 - 15 June 1945
The post of Engineer Officer was abolished around 1942. The timing of abolition varied by unit.

I contacted an acquaintance familiar with naval personnel. He said FUNAYAMA Chuichi was’t a Paymaster Academy graduate. (He was appointed in 1920.) Paymaster Academy Class 9 had 19 graduates.

In the unit below Squadron level, there were 3 line officers assigned to Staff Officers, and it was easy to estimate who was where. However, in the case of Fleet, there are many staffs and that is impossible. 1st Air Fleet (1st Gen.) case is an exception. Documents remain for the big event, Pearl Harbor Attack.

I contacted an acquaintance familiar with naval personnel. He said FUNAYAMA Chuichi was’t a Paymaster Academy graduate. (He was appointed in 1920.) Paymaster Academy Class 9 had 19 graduates.
Thanks for the clarification!

In the unit below Squadron level, there were 3 line officers assigned to Staff Officers, and it was easy to estimate who was where. However, in the case of Fleet, there are many staffs and that is impossible. 1st Air Fleet (1st Gen.) case is an exception. Documents remain for the big event, Pearl Harbor Attack.
Understood.
