IJA Bombs

Post by Brady » 08 Apr 2021 03:09

What did the IJA use against Sub's I just went through TME 1985 on Japanese explosive ordnance and it does list any special bombs or depth charges the IJA used from it's aircraft angst subs ?

Also it does not list any IJA bomb over 500 kg, but it does refer to them in the Fuses section, noting a 1000 KG bomb ?

Also apart from a 100 kg AP bomb, it does not list any IJA bomb types at the start of the war that were for use against ships ?

No IJA, AP or SAP bombs at wars start ?

Edit- Sea Mines, did the IJA deploy air dropped sea mines ?

As always thanks for any help in this mater.
